Mesereau has no doubts at all that Murray is guilty and he says he “violated every ethical obligation he had as a doctor” when he gave MJ Propofol. For that, he deserves to go to prison, he says. As if that were not clear enough, Mesereau stressed, “I am on the side of the prosecution.”
Today in the trial over Michael Jackson’s manslaughter, his security guard Alberto Alvarez testified. It was Alvarez who eventually called 911 on the morning that Michael Jackson died. But he claims that before he was allowed to call for an ambulance, Dr. Conrad Murray ordered him first to remove several vials of Propofol from Michael Jackson’s bedroom.
Alvarez claims that on the date of Jackson’s death on June 25, 2009, he quickly arrived at the room and discovered Dr. Murray performing one-handed chest compressions on Michael Jackson, who was still in the bed at this point. That is when according to Alvarez, Murray immediately asked him to pack away several vials and an IV bag.
Alvarez claims there were two saline bags on the IV stand, but Murray cared only about the one that contained a vial with a “milky white substance.”
It was only then that Murray asked him to call 911, the security guard claims. It was then that he was also ordered him to move Michael Jackson from the bed to the floor in order to perform CPR. According to Alvarez, paramedics arrived soon after. Paramedics who arrived on the scene will also be called to the witness stand but they are on record as saying that they believed Michael Jackson was already dead at this point.
Alvarez says he has been offered as much as $500,000to provide interviews to media outlets but has always refused, waiting to tell his story in court.
Weighing up the evidence which was available to him, lawyer Tom Mesereau has expressed his opinion that he Dr. Conrad Murray is guilty of the involuntary manslaughter of Michael Jackson.
