Conrad Murray News Conference

2/5/2010 4:01 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Conrad Murray In the rockiest start to a criminal prosecution ever .... we're now told that Dr. Conrad Murray's lawyers plan on holding a news conference near the courthouse where Dr. Murray was set to be arraigned today in the death of Michael Jackson.

We're told attorneys Ed Chernoff and J. Michael Flanagan will publicly complain that they have become pawns in a feud between the L.A. County D.A. and the LAPD.

Although Chernoff's publicist told TMZ this morning Dr. Murray will come to the courthouse ... it's unclear if he'll be at the news conference.

Unless things change in the next hour, criminal charges will not be filed against Dr. Murray today.

TMZ broke the story about the feud between the D.A. and the LAPD over how Dr. Murray is brought to court. The D.A. was working with Murray's lawyers for a voluntary surrender ... the LAPD wants to place him under arrest and bring him into court.

Of course, TMZ will cover the news conference live ... we're guessing it should go down around 1:30 PM PT.

UPDATE
: Ed Chernoff just confirmed the news conference, but said due to "safety concerns" it will be held at a park 12 blocks from the courthouse. He did not say if Dr. Murray will be there.

UPDATE 2: A spokesman for the Sheriff's Department confirms the press conference will be moved, but says there were no "safety concerns."

Steve Whitmore: Click to watchUPDATE: 3: We called the park where the news conference was supposed to go down and the park person said he was contacted by someone and told them they absolutely could not have a news conference there because a permit had not been taken out.

UPDATE 4: Dr. Murray's lawyer, Ed Chernoff, took his notice of a news conference off his official website. The plot thickens.

UPDATE 5
: Now Chernoff's website says the news conference will be held at Polliwog Park, 3 miles from the courthouse.

What the hell is wrong with law enforcement out there? Good grief, are they trying to ensure another drama-ridden stupid celebrity verdict? Really poor form on the part of all involved.

42. I think it is about time to start recalling these people in office.
how come the mayor got free trips from AEG right after this murder took place? How come chief Bratton isnt here anymore?
MONEY AND POWER.

It looks like AEG practically owns L.A. There are some LA politicians who like to socialize with the powers at AEG. Can there be justice in ANY case if politicians are beholden to BIG MONEY?

I'm not saying AEG killed Michael but if AEG were to ever become embroiled in some illegal activity within the city limits, is there one politician that will do his or her job if the situation arises?

Whatever happened to the power of the constituent?

I HATE BIG MONEY AND POLITICS.

@Jazelyn,

Calm down, girl!!! :)


Hey y'all, although Mike was handcuffed and did the perp walk for the camera while Sneddon had an orgasm, he did turn himself in, right?
And MJ turned himself over to Santa Barbara police, not the po po in L.A.

@The Death Hoaxers

Most people believe MJ is dead and you laughing is just sickening. There are at least two death hoax sites, with forums. Go laugh with those who agree with you because the rest of us don't find anything about what's going on funny.
