Dr. Murray May Ask to Delay Preliminary Hearing

5/10/2010 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray's legal team claims it may not be ready for the preliminary hearing setting next month, because they still have not received the full criminal file on the Michael Jackson manslaughter case.

Miranda Sevcik, spokesperson for Murray's lawyer, Ed Chernoff, tells TMZ they have only received 3,500 pages of discovery.  Sevcik cites a news report in which the D.A.'s office claims it has "hundreds of thousands of pages of material." 

But a D.A. spokesperson told TMZ on Friday that the statement that there were "hundreds of thousands" of pages was their error ... and in fact there are only  "thousands of pages" and the defense has received "the bulk of it."

Sevcik's response ... "It's odd. It seems like an awfully big miscalculation."  

Sevcik says if the defense team does not get all the docs soon, they may ask to delay the preliminary hearing setting -- set for June 14.

He will not get a fair trial. The D.A. is already trying to screw him over, plus no one in LA is going to not have an opinion on this already.



Dr Murray helped MJ kill himself, but he didn't murder him. Based on what I have heard, the worst I'd convict him of, is involuntary mansluaghter.

He wants a postponement because he knows he is going to jail! All the PR stunts like running to Joel Olsteen and looking sad at MJ’s grave in the world are not going to save that murdering quack from having his license revoked and serving time in prison. Murray is going to be singing Jailhouse Rock and when he gets out its still not over.

Murray is a soulless, unrepentant, greedy, incompetent sociopath and its time for him to suffer for his crimes. He needs to just bend over and take it like the B-itch he is and stop whining.

On August 28, 2009, the Los Angeles County Coroner concluded that Jackson's death was a homicide caused by the combination of drugs in his body.Before his death, Jackson reportedly had been administered propofol, along with two anti-anxiety benzodiazepines: lorazepam and midazolam. Law enforcement officials investigated his personal physician, who told investigators that he had been trying to wean Jackson off propofol. On February 8, 2010, Murray pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter, and was released from prison after posting a US$75,000 bail

He is probably going down for involuntary manslaughter, doubt he'll serve any actual jail time, but... that's no excuse to not get all the files on the case either. They are right in that 'hundreds of thousands' of files vs under four thousand is a big miscalculation and the DA's office saying ooops sorry our bad, wrong number sounds pretty irresponsible at the least.

Pop icon Michael Jackson's three children could be taken into care amid claims they're living in CHAOS with grandma Katherine.
The 79-year-old mother of Jacko - who died last June - helps care for five other grandchildren at her LA home.



But authorities told her to move them and their mum Alejandra Oaziaza out after complaints that one of her brood had been seen brandishing a 300,000- volt stun gun and another had slapped his brother in the face.
Child welfare officials advised Katherine to take action a month ago because there were too many threats to "a stable life" for Jacko's kids Prince, 12, Paris, 11, and Blanket, seven.
They have all lived with Katherine for ten years and she is loath to move them out, especially as Paris is so close to Alejandra she calls her mum. A family insider said: "These are really tense and frightening times. With eight kids in one place it's a burden for Katherine.
"Officers asked for the numbers to be reduced, but nothing has happened. It's just a few days before they check back, and they have enough grounds to take all the youngsters into care.
"It's a nightmare and we are terrified of the next step."
But Alejandra and her family are still there and there are fears ALL the children may now be taken into care.
Alejandra had Genevieve, 20, and Randy Jnr, 17, by Randy Jackson, 48, and when they split she fell for his brother Jermaine, 55. They had two sons, Jaafar, 13, and Jermajesty, nine, and adopted Donte, 11.

Why don't they delay it until June 25th? That would be appropriate. Sounds like this thing is going to drag on forever. I fear that when all is said and done, Murray will get slapped with a fine and maybe have his license revoked and that's it. It's not enough.

It's pretty frightening to read such hatred and hostility from I would guess a MJ fan.



I'm sure Michael Jackson loved his children, at least as much as a drug can. But make no mistake when a person is in active addiction, which Michael Jackson was, his children weren't the most important thing in his life, his drugs were. Drugs were his bestfriend, his mistress, his lover, his priority, and he went to great lengths to obtain those drugs.



Read up on drug addiction "MJ Greatest Fan of All" then come back here and post a comment that is accurate and true. Fact is ALL drug addicts would kill for the next fix, they would stomp on their own mother to get their next fix. Its a terrible disease and Michael Jackson had it, its what ultimately killed him. If it wasn't Dr. Murray it would have been someone else, or himself accidentally. Drug addicts have no boundaries and everything in their lives is secondary to the addiction.



And I hope you get some anger management because your post is pretty scary and threatening. Michael Jackson might have meant alot to the fans, but when you cross the line (as you have done) to state you will take a baseball bat to Dr. Murray, that is a straight out threat ! Violence is the answer, huh ????? This is a public comment board, threats should be taken seriously.
