Dr. Conrad Murray

Prosecution Wants to Exclude

Molestation Evidence in Manslaughter Trial

Prosecutors in the Dr. Conrad Murray manslaughter case want to block all testimony related to allegations that Michael Jackson molested children.

According to court docs obtained by TMZ ... prosecutors want Judge Michael Pastor to bar Steve Robel -- a key Santa Barbara County Sheriff's investigator in the 2005 MJ molestation trial -- from testifying  in Murray's defense.  Robel is on the defense witness list.

In fact, prosecutors want all references to alleged molestation barred from Murray's trial, on grounds it has nothing to do with MJ's death and would merely inflame the jury.

And, prosecutors have also asked the judge to block the testimony of a number of doctors who treated Michael Jackson but were not involved in caring for MJ on the day of his death.

This is a huge motion that could have a profound impact on the case.  As TMZ first reported, the defense will argue that dozens of doctors had addicted MJ to prescription meds -- including Propofol -- and they are largely responsible for the condition Michael was in the day he died.

Judge Pastor has not ruled on the motions.

How does the molestation trial have any bearing on this manslaughter trial? I see no connection.

Michael did not molest children. EVER. I was there. I would be careful about what you say regarding Michael. Consider this your warning.

This trial has nothing to do with the allegations and the only doctor who is to blame for Michaels death is Murray, why won't they get it, any other treatment by doctors in the past has no relevance to this case at all. Murray acted irresponsibly and killed Michael plain and simple.

I would agree what does a 2005 molestation charge have to do with whether Dr. Murray gave him an illegal drug (unless under hospital or Dr.s office) have to do with this trial?

Wow.

I am shocked at how low Murray is stooping. First he milks $120k a month off of Michael by injecting him with $48k a month in drugs meant for surgery, then he OD's Michael, then he runs off and doesn't show up until after he got a lawyer, and now he has the damn balls to try to get off of his rap by bringing up that crap that was never proven???


The guy truely is a low-life.

My guess is if you are very wealthy, well known.. want forget all you have achieved, and can achieve, including devoting all responsibility to your beloved children, pay a physician to let you fall into a deep uninterrupted sleep by dangerously illegal means and not dream, which is to play chicken with death.. something is very wrong with you

I don't see what MJ being a so-called pedophile have to do with his death.

The child abuse allegations will still probably find their way into the testimony. I wonder if Macaulay Culkin will be involved in this case, as he did MJ's last.

The defense will argue anything just as long as their client
gets away with murray's stating that he was trying to wean Michael off the propofol but unfortunately failed because supposedly Michael was addicted to the anesthetic.

I personally don't care about them blocking the molestation crap as that was never proved and the point is moot anyways. HOWEVER, I hope like heck they CANNOT block the other doctor's testimony! This goes directly to how MJ shopped for his scripts and drugs. THAT is very tantamount to the case since it does prove he was an addict and that led to the downfall in his health. That's some darn tricky lawerying there!
