The audio recording of the police interview with Dr. Conrad Murray just days after Michael Jackson's death will be strong evidence for the prosecution... but HLN correspondent and In Session anchor Ryan Smith points out it could end up helping the defense.
In a way, he says, it allows the doctor to testify in his own words, but without having to be subjected to cross examination.
Get up to speed on the what happened in the Conrad Murray trial each morning on HLN's "Morning Express with Robin Meade."

Dr. Drew welcomed Nancy Grace to his show Wednesday night and it wasn’t long before the feisty former prosecutor weighed in on the day’s stunning testimony in the Conrad Murray trial.
Murray is charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson, but right off the top Nancy told Dr. Drew how she believes that Murray is being undercharged.
“This should have been charged as a murder one,” Nancy said. "It's very confusing, but murder one requires intent to commit the act – not to kill."

During Gloria Estefan's visit to the Joy Behar Show, the conversation quickly turned to the Conrad Murray trial and Michael Jackson. Estefan and Jackson were label mates at Sony and were also friends for many years.
Estefan remembers always thinking of Jackson as a child, never as a man.
"He was just fascinated by everything. He never had a childhood and that really hurt him a lot," she told Behar.
Eventually, she says, the pressure of being the King of Pop caught up with him.
"He kept raising the bar and raising the bar… I just thought all that pressure was going to cave in on him."
Watch a clip from her interview with Joy Behar:
