Conrad Murray to Prosecutor: So Whatcha Got?

12/29/2010 5:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray's preliminary hearing in the Michael Jackson manslaughter case ... set for next Tuesday ... will be a one-sided affair, because TMZ has learned Murray's side won't utter a peep.

Sources connected with Murray's defense tell TMZ Murray's lawyer, Ed Chernoff, will be there to listen -- not to ask questions.  Specifically, when the prosecution lays out its case, Chernoff will be looking for holes and inconsistencies.

As TMZ first reported, the prosecution will call approximately 30 witnesses, including experts and LAPD detectives, to establish Murray acted recklessly in fueling MJ with Propofol the day he died.

It's a very good bet the judge will order Murray to stand trial ... judges rarely dismiss charges after a preliminary hearing.  So there's no point in Murray's lawyer playing his hand.

Glad to hear Murray will most likely have to stand trial. I just hope he spends some hard time in prison. It won't bring MJ back, but he and his family deserve justice. At the very least Murray was greedy and negligent and did not fulfill his oath as a doctor, and although I won't go as far as calling him a murderer until I see more facts, 4 years isn't nearly enough imo.

Love and miss you forever MJ.

soul is already rotten, otherwise you would not be as hatefull

Learn to be nice and above all of that try to upgrade your
intelligence, to avoid not to insult ours.
YOU ARE A MONSTER, YOU ARE AN ANIMAL. LOOK IN THE MIRROR AND TELL ME YOU LIKE WHAT YOU SEE?

Ed will do more than listen, he will cross examine each witness and lock them down as to their positions. this story is inaccurate. No attorney just listens.

MIDNIGHT CRACKER, YOU CAN USE YOUR WACKO INSANE IMAGINATION AND
ASK FOR A TINY BRAIN FOR YOURSELF!!!OOPS, that is not for sale.
Your comment is utterly out of this world like the rest of your
nation healthcare system.
No wonder why sick people like you can even own a pc?
Credit debt, no healthcare, 0 education but an imaginary EGO.
YOUR NATION IS A FAT, LAZY AND STUPID COLLECTION OF ****.
Corruption is what you breath. NEVER LEARN, DO YOU? MJ WAS A GIFT TO YOUR COUNTRY. YOU DESTROYED HIM, WHAT GOOD DIDN'T YOUR
NATION DESTROYED? SHAME ON YOU.

The fact that the Prosecution has 30 witnesses tells me that they have a strong case. Murray will pay one way or another.
