Lawyers try to shorten hearing in Jackson case
Question of the Day
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Prosecutors and attorneys for the doctor charged in Michael Jackson’s death say they are trying to work out ways to shorten a preliminary hearing scheduled in January.
Some of the evidence against Dr. Conrad Murray will be presented during the hearing that Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor said Tuesday must begin on Jan. 4.
After the hearing, the judge will decide if there is enough evidence for Murray to stand trial for involuntary manslaughter.
Murray was present during the hearing Tuesday, when the judge met with attorneys for 40 minutes in closed chambers to discuss issues related to evidence.
Deputy District Attorney David Walgren says the Jan. 4 hearing may last two to three weeks, but the witness list could be shortened if he reaches stipulations with attorneys for Murray, who has pleaded not guilty.
