LOS ANGELES (AP) — Prospective jurors in the trial of Michael Jackson’s doctor have disclosed in writing their views about prescription drugs, doctors, celebrities in court and the life and death of the entertainer.
The 29-page jury questionnaire released Thursday explores whether prospective jurors are fans of the pop singer, attended his concerts or memorial service, bought his records and whether they saw his posthumous concert film, “This Is It.”
The prospects were asked to disclose their positive or negative feelings about Jackson and Dr. Conrad Murray, who is charged with involuntary manslaughter in Jackson’s death.
They were also asked their knowledge of drugs allegedly taken by Jackson.
A total of 170 people who said they can serve on the two-month trial filled out questionnaires and will return May 4 for in person quizzing.
