Flanagan believes that there are elements that Dr. Murray could have provided that added to his defense, since he was the only one in the room at the time of Jackson’s death.
If the verdict was reversed on the grounds of error by law, Murray would be allowed to take the stand and share the missing information.
Flanagan and Wass believe that social media may have swayed jurors during the trial since it was such a high profile case.
"I think during the trial, it would have been difficult not to go on Twitter and see anything (about the case)," Wass said.
Murray’s lawyers don’t expect the doctor to serve more than two years of his sentence and could be released before his appeal develops.
