Prince Michael Jackson Meets With Prosecutors, May Be Rebuttal Witness Against Conrad Murray

by at . Comments

Deputy D.A. David Walgren met with Michael Jackson's son Prince to discuss the possibility of the King of Pop's eldest child testifying against Dr. Conrad Murray.

The meeting was held at Katherine Jackson's gated Calabasas, Calif., residence. Katherine, Michael's mother, wants to ensure Prince's protection in all of this.

"Even though she is steadfastly against Prince testifying, she recognizes this is something he feels he must do if asked," says a source close to the family.

"Prince has information that's clearly relevant to the proceedings. Make no mistake, Prince would have been called as a witness already if he was an adult."

The D.A. is about to rest without having called Prince Michael Jackson, but the option is on the table to call him as a rebuttal witness after Murray's defense.

That decision will be made by the D.A. after hearing the defense case.

"Prince does have information that would be helpful for the jury to hear. However, it's a double-edged sword of putting a child on the stand," says the insider.

"This could be very traumatic and Prince, despite all assurances that he can handle it, well, you never know until it happens. How would he do under cross examination from Dr. Murray's lawyers? How will he react to seeing Dr. Murray in court?"

"The last time Prince saw Dr. Conrad Murray was the day his father passed away, and needless to say, a lot has changed in his world since then."

Prince and Katherine were told by the Deputy D.A., there is "a 50/50 chance" that he will take the stand. Prince will be prepared if called to testify.

Katherine and Prince trust the Deputy D.A., and Katherine knows that this is very, very important to her grandson, so she supports what he decides.

Murray's trial will resume Wednesday. He has pleaded not guilty to the charge of involuntary manslaughter and faces up to four years in prison.

Mike hired only one doctor. That is mean nobody else can be there,when he goes in the bathroom etc! He knew what the doctor do or don't and he was happy with that. Think!!!

I say that if he wants to do it, let him do it. It may help in the long run with the healing process. You can tell that he's probably got some things bottled up inside that he wants to get out, and maybe testifying will do just that. It's already quite clear that Murray was negligent, and he SHOULD be found guilty, but who knows what will happen. I just hope that if Prince is called, he's prepared to take all kinds of crap from Murray's ridiculous defense.
