Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney David Walgren has told Katherine Jackson that he supports Michael Jackson's three children, Prince, Paris and Blanket, participating in Dr. Conrad Murray's sentencing on November 29, 2011, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

Dr. Conrad Murray was convicted Monday of involuntary manslaughter in connection with the death of Michael Jackson on June 25, 2009.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Michael's two oldest children, Prince and Paris, had told their grandmother Katherine they wanted to testify in Murray’s trial, but ultimately, the D.A. decided not to call Jackson's children.

"The D.A. has told Katherine Jackson that the children could submit a letter for one of the family members to read at the sentencing. If either one of them wish to address the court, he will fully support the children, and make whatever accommodations need to be made. It's still unclear if the children will be in court for sentencing, Katherine Jackson is very protective of the children. If Katherine has her way, they won't be anywhere near the courthouse for sentencing," a Jackson family insider tells RadarOnline.com.

The Jackson family will be allowed to address Judge Michael Pastor on November 29 at Murray's sentencing. "Michael comes from a very large family, and they were in court for the entire trial. The DA will be talking to the Jackson family as the sentencing date draws closer. It's a very fluid situation, but it's more than likely that more than two Jackson siblings will be speaking. Katherine Jackson hasn't decided if she will make public comments in court," the source says.

Dr. Conrad Murray was remanded into custody pending his sentencing. He could face up to four years in state prison.
