Judge expects full jury pool for Jackson trial

 
A judge presiding over the trial of Michael Jackson's doctor said Friday that he expects to have enough prospective jurors to form a complete pool by the end of the day, meaning lawyers for both sides can prepare to begin the screening process to select a final panel.

Between 140 and 150 people reported for jury duty Friday, Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor said. A day earlier, 72 people were given a detailed questionnaire probing their knowledge and opinions of the case against Dr. Conrad Murray.

The judge is hoping to have 100 prospective jurors who have enough time to devote to the roughly five-week trial and don't have strong views on the case, which will focus on the Houston-based cardiologist's actions in the final hours of Jackson's life. That group will be whittled down to a jury of 12, with several alternates.

More than half of the 187 people who reported Thursday were dismissed because they could not devote the amount of time needed to hear the case, and all indicated they had some knowledge of the proceedings.

Murray faces an involuntary manslaughter charge to which he has pleaded not guilty. Murray faces four years in prison and the loss of his medical license if convicted.

Pastor had reserved Monday to continue jury selection if a sizeable pool could not be found.
