Conrad Murray -- I Will Never Cop a Plea

4/6/2010 4:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Dr. Conrad Murray has made it clear -- he will not take a plea bargain in the death of Michael Jackson.

Sources say Dr. Murray is adamant ... he did nothing wrong and will not plead to manslaughter or any lesser offense.

TMZ first broke the story of Dr. Murray's defense ... that Michael Jackson accidentally killed himself by self-injecting a fatal dose of Propofol into his bloodstream.

Dr. Murray, we're told, is "completely confident" that he will be found not guilty. He is less confident that the medical boards in Texas, Nevada and California will reach a similar result.

Dr. Murray is extremely relieved Judge Michael Pastor did not yank his California medical license yesterday. Nevertheless, he realizes it's all but inevitable all three medical boards will go after his license.

He got off today simply because the judge couldnt preside over
case. Conflict of interest. He's a friend of Jerry Brown.Who's
filing to take Murrays license. long day at court. very draining.
Murray gave all the fans dirty looks one by one. Ignored and turned his back to Jacksons in courtroom. He was left there for
all of 35 minutes alone while his lawyers spoke with the judge.
I love Ms. Jackson shes truly hurting, cried in courtroom while
Janet stroked her mother back. Just too much. I tell ya. Hey to the TMZ boys covering the story.....

Is there a place we can send donations to help Dr. Murray out with his defense fund?

While I don't think Murray did anything wrong other then give Jackson exactly what he wanted I have no problem with the outcome.

Jackson was a pedophile who paid off his victims to keep their mouths shut. He was warned several times to stop (far more then the average Joe) and he continued to bed children. He's a sick pervert and I don't care that he's dead.

Furthermore I think his family is a bunch of sick money grubbing losers (except Janet who has her own money). I think the father is disgusting, the brothers and even the mother. This is a circus freak family and the children will not fall far from the tree.

If nothing else I thank Dr. Murray for finally putting this pedophile to sleep. The fools who like Jackson can continue to defend his disgusting acts but if Jackson was your neighboor and not some supposed icon you would be calling the police daily.

To all you hate filled people who are saying horrible things about Michael Jackson did your mothers not teach you about respect/compassion/love is your hatred aimed at Michael only or is it a fault that runs through your very being have you hatred for other people. its not good for your health where is your love?did you bother to read the court transcripts did you read Aphrodite Jones book?you ought to find facts straight from the court transcripts i took the time i read the book and im reading it again now. im familiar with the Arviso family and what they got up to r u?it seems abit funny that Gavin and Star said nothing happened with Michael until after the Bashir documentary mmmm thats when Michael said he shared his bed mmmm by this time Gavin was well into remission and Michael was phasing the family out of his life they were losing their meal ticket put 2n2 together people

If Murray thinks that is what happens then he is dreaming. There is no way that Michael done this to himself. He would have not killed himself because of his children he loved them to much. So you better come up with something better then that. They should have taped the house off from the very beginning and treated this as a crime scene but instead they allowed everyone to go in and take what ever they wanted. This doctor is quilty as hell he refused to sign the death certificate and he disappeared from the hospital so that tells me something alittle fishy Theres other things that he done and said that don't add up he has talked in circles through out this whole case. We need justice for Michael Rest in peace Loved Missed but Never Forgotten

This so-called dr is one big dirt bag, low-down scoundrel. But then again these hangers-on were the only people to leech off of Jackson even when there was nothing left to take. With that said, what person has the nerve to call himself a DR and/or hold a license when he can't even perform proper CPR? What sane, rational person would ever go anywhere near this quack except to discuss Michael? The things he was pumping Jackson full of (whether Jackson asked for them or not) is again beyond insane. Murray saw his cash-cow opportunity in Jackson and grabbed it. Get off and/or found not guilty perhaps but he'll always have that monkey on his back no matter the final outcome. As far as Jackson's own family goes, they're all opportunist (except for Janet) so it's no wonder these were the only kinds of people Jackson had in his life. There's papa Joe trying to sue the good Dr. Too bad no one has brought to the old man's attention that the DR was living off of his late son therefore he has no money. It's doubtful the Dr has any male practice insurance 'cause it wouldn't surprise to know he didn't keep his premiums current. While some above have said he (DR) did the world a favor perhaps but there are far worse people still roaming the streets of America, so how soon should they be offed and by whom? Yeah Jackson had some terrific career highs but the lows were lower than low all of which he brought on himself. Just goes to show being rich and famous isn't always what it's cracked up to be. Jackson's having his judgment day even though he was never found nor plead guilty to any crimes.

If Michael Jackson "killed himself" then why did the Doctor run? This guy is unethical, a murderer and a liar.

Yes, he has the benefit of the doubt, innocent until proven guilty, but he is guilty of medical ethics, for crying out loud.....

Posted at 7:40AM on Apr 6th 2010 by An opinion


Well therein lies the problem because he is not being charged with violation of medical ethics is he? He is charged with manslaughter. Big difference. And the only thing that is ignorant is this feeling that this man should not be able to put up a defense because some rabid fans feel he should just roll over and admit guild just because it was Michael Jackson. Innocent until proven guilty, and all accused have the right to their day in court. That's how it's done in America. Deal with it.

As for being here to bother some fans, I WILL plead guilty to that one. Some Jacksontologists are completely off their rockers. Most are not. Guess which ones are the ones that get the most upset over my comments. I didn't even post the comment that you are replying to on this topic, it was dragged over.

Actually if you look in the guinness book of world records Michael Jackson is listed as the person who donated the most money to charity EVER. So in fact misinformed one, he did plenty of things with his money other than lavish spending. I'll give you 2 guesses of the amount (clue... it's in the tens of millions)

You know what.
Murray is one more proove for us, justice system has ways that he can use to prevent his as going to jail.
That is why is so confident.
By the way, yeah, innocent untill prooven wrong...true..
But Murray is wrong in many ways, even if he would be innocent of murder.
He ius so damn guilty of a long list of fraud, lies, and hiding evidence, also he as a doctor made every mistake he could before MJ was gone.
Heck he did not even have basic first aid stuff there.
And he was too protect and look after M ????

What hits me bad and painfull is that Murray can make any bullshit up he likes.
And worst of all, he vampire lawyers probably control him too.
$$$$

Damn I am ashamed to be part of human reace sometimes

Old news, old record. Bill Gates just recently pledged 10 BILLION dollars to charity.

Barbie @ 5:42am, while you're asking what did MJ do for any of us (I assume you're not including his decades of music making) the same could be asked of the DR, what did he EVER DO FOR YOU? As far as it being all about MJ and his money making (back when he actually had some) I don't suppose you know anything about the millions he either donated and/or raised funds for any given number of charities? Yeah, people work and earn money, don't you work? Yeah, while his attorneys (notice I spelled it right) created reasonable doubt, which what an attorney is paid to do, but then you've forgotten about those 12 adults (you know - the jurors) who found Jackson not guilty of anything - not even double parking! No one paid them (off), right? One thing Jackson did do his make America aware that this so-called Dr is really no DR at all (would you go see him?) If so, you better not turn your back on him or may just end up like Jackson. Which do you consider to be the lessor of two evils? While you so obviously have great dislike for Jackson, that's your right, but how sad you're waisting your life and time reading all about someone whom you no regard for (dead or otherwise) and taking even more time to offer your comments. I think it proves you're somewhat interested in the late MJ (otherwise very sick life) whether you're willing to admit it or not. I should think, a la your comments, you'd run not walk away from anything to do with Jackson - so why are you here?

By the way, after all the mistakes as a doctor, in the 1st place.... he stil worries more about his fake license than having the guts to be a man and help the Judge, Mj and his family.
What will he need the license for, I would not wanna be his patient.
Not because of all of this, but this dude did not even have basic 1st aid material there.
He used unreliable ivy stuff whitout properly setting it up, in.....A HOSPITAL for god sake
