Conrad Murray Witness Facing Contempt Of Court Charge
Dr. Paul White could also be fined $1,000 after angering the judge...
A key defence witness forMichael Jackson's doctor Conrad Murray is facing a possible contempt of court charge and a $1,000 fine.
Dr. Paul White, who testified at Murray's involuntary manslaughter trial yesterday, was warned for mentioning private details from a series of conversations he had with Murray, after prosecutor David Walgren objected to the information.
Propofol expert White, who claimed that the King of Pop had a secret stash of the anaesthetic during his evidence, was privately scolded by Judge Michael Pastor for his testimony.
Pastor said: "Nice try. This is so obvious. He's trying at every juncture to add in other material. It's deliberate. I don't like it, it's not going to happen again,"
White then claimed to have more information for the jurors, but is now unable to reveal his evidence after the judge blocked him from revealing any more from his private conversations with Murray.
Pastor then announced that he may charge White with contempt and a $1,000 fine, stating: "That is a direct violation of my order and quite frankly constitutes direct contempt."
White will now have to attend a contempt hearing on November 16, where he will be able to fight his case before the judge decides whether to give him a fine.
