Dr. Conrad Murray was at Michael Jackson’s bedside when he made phone calls that could be crucial pieces of evidence in the doctor’s criminal trial, one of his attorneys tells exclusively.

Speaking with carefully parsed words, Dr. Murray’s lead attorney Ed Chernoff told exclusively: "Dr. Murray made three phone calls and there is no information that would lead anyone to the conclusion that they were made anywhere but at the bedside."

According to police reports, Dr. Murray initially told the LAPD that he administered the powerful sedative Propofol to Jackson at 10:50 am.

911 was called at 12:21 pm. After Murray administered Propofol he made one phone call to a patient, one phone call to a girlfriend and apparently a third call, to an unidentified party.

The defense wants to prove that Murray was not negligent in his care of Jackson and did not leave him alone for an extended period of time after administering Propofol.

Chernoff indicated to that he is confident in what Dr. Murray told police when interviewed after Jackson’s death. "If the prosecution doesn't play Dr. Murray's interview with the police in front of the jury, we will," Chernoff told about the tape recorded conversation.

The timeline leading up to Jackson’s death will be crucial at Murray’s criminal trial and the doctor’s other attorney Michael Flanagan told on Tuesday that Murray made a mistake about the timeline during his interview with police after the singer’s death.

“Dr. Murray's timeline of events that day when Michael Jackson died is wrong,” Flanagan told on Tuesday. “Doctors make mistakes, and that is what he did, and it was simply just that, a mistake.”

Flanagan later tried to back off those comments and claimed he never made them. But when threatened to publicly release proof of the conversation, Dr. Murray’s legal team attempted to clean up their mess.

On Wednesday, Chernoff told "The police timeline and Dr. Murray's timeline do not coordinate and I think that was the point Michael Flanagan was trying to make. Dr. Murray was very specific with the police about what happened, he didn't lie to the police and he is not varying his story now.”

The confusion within Dr. Murray’s legal team over the timeline comes as they try struggle to pull together their defense after Flanagan complained that the prosecution has not turned over discovery material.
