Jackson doc's expert challenging prosecution case
LOS ANGELES, CA -- An expert on the powerful anesthetic blamed for Michael Jackson's death has hinted he disagrees with prosecutors' theories in the case against the singer's personal physician.
Dr. Paul White is testifying for Dr. Conrad Murray, who has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter in Jackson's June 2009 death.
White said Thursday he reviewed reports by more than a dozen experts. He says he wouldn't expect Jackson to have died from the drugs that Murray told police he gave the singer. Murray was giving Jackson the anesthetic propofol as a sleep aid.
A prosecution expert contends Murray likely gave Jackson propofol on an IV drip in a higher dose than he told police, and then left the room.
White says he can't justify the conduct if that's what happened, but is expected to present an alternate theory.
