Michael Jackson Manslaughter Prelim - 30 Witnesses

12/28/2010 3:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned more than 2 dozen witnesses will testify at  Dr. Conrad Murray's preliminary hearing in the Michael Jackson manslaughter case.

Sources say the prelim will last roughly 2 weeks and approximately 30 witnesses will be called.

We're told there won't be a "Perry Mason" moment -- instead, prosecutors will lay out their case, piece by piece, to show Dr. Murray acted recklessly by medicating Michael with Propofol and other drugs at his home the day he died.

Sources say the witnesses include various medical experts, as well as 3 LAPD detectives who investigated the case.

And, we're told, prosecutors will present more evidence than in a typical manslaughter case, because the legal theory here is novel -- that a doctor committed a homicide in the treatment of a patient.

Mimi, actually it was a private message, not something he posted for everyone to read and I DIDN´T say I believed the man. As I said, he could´ve lied but also could have said the truth.
But it´s a FACT Michael had a drugs(legal ones) problem in the past, he admitted that HIMSELF. He and his family and other friends. So why deny what he confirmed himself?!

There have been enough heresay, innuendo's, and down right lies that have been reported about Michael over the years. If someone has info on MJ then let them say it publicly.

No one is disputing the fact that Michael had a dependency on drugs at some point, but I have yet to see any evidence that Michael was abusing drugs in the last few years or months of his life.

Lastly, your statement baffles me because IF you were unsure as to whether this man was actually telling the truth or not then why post about it here???


Makes no sense to me...

Sadly, I also believe that our beloved MJ had a serious drug problem.
But what makes this to "Dr" Murray?? A DRUG DEALER.
He knew MJ had a problem, but for a lot of $$$$$$ this "Dr" had no problem to deliver it.
He left drugs in a bedroom with a frustrated addict who desperately wanted to sleep. Come on...
He had no proper equipment in the room to monitor his patient. Come on...
He gave CPR on the bed and not on the floor. Come on...

He waited too long to call 911 and then refused to give the details of the medication he gave to MJ. Come on...
Yes, the courtroom is the right place for you to be "Dr" Murray, you have made to many mistakes. I hope they take your licence, jail is not the right place for you to be, come to us to the MJ fans, we know exactly what to do with you!!

Stop calling Michael Jacko. So disrespectful and rude. Get a life and leave him alone!

Dr. Murray is responsible for his death. So for all of you blaming Michael and saying vicious comments stop. So unbelivable. Dr. Murray will be found guilty.
Oh and he had a disease called vitiligo look it up, disgrace saying he bleached his skin. He never.

Justice for beautiful Michael

That drug should only be given in a hospital by an anothesiologist, not the doctor. Dr Murray was wrong.

HOW CAN HE SAY HE WAS ADDICTED TO PROPOFOL, WHEN ANOTHER DOCTOR SAYS IT LEAVES YOUR SYSTEM IN MINUTES. HAD HE BEEN WATCHING OVER MICHAEL AND SAW HE WAS IN TROUBLE, HE COULD HAVE PULLED THE IV OUT AND MICHAEL WOULD BE ALIVE TODAY. IF DR. MURRY WAS WEINING HIM OFF PROPOFOL, THEN WHY DID HE PLACE A LARGE ORDER DAYS BEFORE MICHAELS DEATH ???? ... HE IS SUCH A LIER. HE WAS REPORTING THINGS TO SOMEONE AND THEY PROBABLY TOLD HIM WHAT TO DO ...PUT HIM DOWN. THEY MADE A DEAL WITH MURRY ...HECK I CAN DO 4 YEARS AND COME OUT AND THEY PAY HIM OFF FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE. THEY ARE MAKING A KILLING OFF OF M.J. BY THE WAY WHO IS PAYING BROKE A$% MURRY'S BILLS????? ... THINK ABOUT IT!!!!!
