LOS ANGELES — A respected doctor admitted on Monday that Conrad Murray deviated from the standard of care providing Michael Jackson with propofol in a home setting, saying it could be dangerous and even deadly.
Deputy District Attorney David Walgren grilled the defense’s propofol expert, Dr. Paul White, during day 21 of the involuntary manslaughter trial.
White testified that he has been paid $11,000, so far, by the defense for his work on the case.
There were several tense exchanges between Walgren and White when .
“Be clear, you think it was just a detail that was overlooked when Conrad Murray failed to advise paramedics he had been administering propofol, is that your testimony?” Walgren asked White.
“I don’t think I used those words,” White testified. “A small dose of propofol could not be reversed.”
