Michael Jackson Doctor Conrad Murray Won't Make A Plea Deal
'Plea bargains are for guilty people,' Murray's attorney, Ed Chernoff, says.
By Mark Maurer

The lawyer for Michael Jackson doctor Conrad Murray announced Friday (April 16) that there will be no plea bargain in his client's involuntary-manslaughter case, according to The Associated Press.

No matter what Deputy District Attorney David Walgren presents, attorney Ed Chernoff contends that "plea bargains are for guilty people." Chernoff also expressed concerns about the jury remaining impartial in a case regarding a revered entertainer.

Murray, a 57-year-old cardiologist, previously pleaded not guilty to the involuntary-manslaughter charges brought up against him in Jackson's death. Murray gave the singer anesthetic propofol and other drugs, as indicated by the autopsy report.

Murray's bail was set at $75,000 bail, nearly triple the amount set for comparable crimes. Walgren is attempting to prove the doctor demonstrated gross negligence when he gave the singer propofol to help him sleep.

More specific evidence might come to light at the June 14 preliminary hearing. Murray continues to declare his innocence, and Chernoff reasons that nothing that he gave Jackson "should have" resulted in death.

"You may find after you are done watching the trial that it is not nearly as cut-and-dried as has been presented," Chernoff told the AP. "One thing that simply will never be the truth is that Dr. Murray pumped a bunch of drugs into Michael Jackson and walked out of that room. He's not that kind of guy."

Murray admitted to police that he administered those drugs to help Jackson sleep and subsequently left his bedside. Cell phone records reveal that Murray made at least three personal calls around that time. A Jackson employee who said he was present in the hospital room told police that Murray interrupted CPR to collect drug vials.

Earlier this month, Los Angeles Judge Michael Pastor delayed the California State Attorney General's Office's motion to revoke Murray's medical license until the June hearing. Members of Jackson's family, including father Joe, mother Kathleen, sister Janet and brothers Randy and Jermaine, were in attendance.

Events and new developments surrounding the singer's sudden death have persisted for the past 10 months. Jackson died June 25 at the age of 50 in his rented Bel Air mansion mere days prior to a comeback tour in London. He had hired Murray to keep tabs on his health during the rehearsals.

You rocked my world, you know you did
And everything I own I give
The rarest love who\'d think I\'d find
Someone like you to call mine




"Let us dream of tomorrow where we can truly love from the soul, and know love as the ultimate truth at the heart of all creation."

well from mikes family's own camp they say that he took drugs, oxman said he would wake up dead

jermaine i think and pap joe deny drugs i think
but janet sold him down the road i think
there were so many claimed interventions stated by janet - she found it hard and had to leave????!!!!!!

you have the pharmacy - suing and settling with mike over unpaid meds

you have to wonder who has not sold him down the road

you have nanny purchasing the meds, and pumping his tum ( was that debunked?)

so are aeg - randy phillips and KO going to come to mikes aid and say that he was okay, is the TII footage going to get pulled and the out takes(?) or unseen footage? who was at the meeting - surely Murray would have been there?

with all the above - why plea?

but i think if the DA office does there job - he would be forced to plea

but DA is state run and would not have the same interest as a private based prosecution. The family saw little of him, and did not visit or stay over save for randy or his assistant - who seemed at risk of being gunned down.

anyone know whats happened to the wrongful death suit?

remember Frank said that they had a meeting about this weight - is Frank going to give evidence - that he thought mike was okay

what about the pp that were bashing on mikes door to get him to go to the rehearsals - like payne like his voice coach ?

Ya,  I don't get some of the family - counter productive from their end.
