Dr. Conrad Murray

Pleads Not Guilty

in MJ Death

1/25/2011 2:18 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray just pled not guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson ... telling the judge, "I am an innocent man."

When the judge asked Murray for his plea, he said, "Your Honor, I am an innocent man," adding, "I therefore plead not guilty."

Judge Michael Pastor ruled earlier this month that there is enough evidence to force Murray to stand trial.

Today's brief arraignment is part of the process.

The trial date is set for March 28.

If convicted, Murray faces a maximum of four years in prison.

By the way, we promised you we'd go live with the arraignment, but the technical wizards at  KABC TV in Los Angeles couldn't find the right cables to plug in -- they cover L.A. like no one.

I can't believe he would only get 4 yrs for killing MJ. Even if MJ wanted the drug the Dr. should of known what would happen ( which he did thats why he asked for the equipment) so to me he killed MJ It should be murder not manslaughter!!!!!

He will eventually be aquitted of all charges. In my opinion MJ was an idiot, one that I believe was stupid enough to OD himself.

Michael Jackson is NOT alive, I really don't know why people still keep believing this. Are you all really that deluded? Dr. Murray was negligent in his duties as Michael's doctor and he will pay the price in the end.
