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."

0125-conrad-murray-video_2
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.

Umm if Jackson is alive like so many of you seem to think imagine the huge trouble he will be in if and when he surfaces. Look at the cost surrounding his funeral, a man on trial for his death and the monstrous fraud enacted against the public who bought so many memorial items. He'd be crusified. If he's not dead and it's found he's actually alive the time in jail will make him wish he actually was dead. Plus can you imagine how much Murray could sue him for. If he's not dead he wrecked this guys life and that would make him an evil little goof.

Michael is alive. This is hoax is a hoot - a circus. Can't wait for Michael to have the last laugh on all the idiots who are exhibiting their grand stupidity. Payback is hell! Everyone should grab some Snickers, popcorn and coca-cola, cause this is gonna be great.

Why do you want MJ to return and thereby become one of the most hated persons in history? Will he be paying money back to all those he swindled? Thousands of people that bought CD:s, filmtickets and souvenirs BECAUSE he was dead? The Courtsystem? The hospital? The City of LA? The Policeforce?

Or will he just keep those billions of dollars for himself?

IF he returns he sure needs all the bodyguards he can find, because there will be a price on his head, more lawsuits then you can ever count and a place in Guiness Book of Records as the worst scam artist ever.

WHY do you wish that for Michael???!!

He is innocent? The evidence showing his guilt is beyond reasonable doubt.

How sad are you that you have no idea what the evidence is since he hasn't had a trial yet. Innocent until proven guilty. A trial has to take place first..LOL What about what will come out about Wacko's constant drug use? Where were the kids he neglected? 19 aliases he used to fuel his drug habit? All his lies..etc.

no vindication for that rotting pedophile. Oh and don't bother giving me your lame threats mjlover4life and all your nics because I'm one person who won't take it. I'll expose you to the police which should have been done a long time ago. Now go start another petitio where you claim to be half brain dead and its all Diane Sawyers fault.

"I´m an innocent man."
Well, in a sense he is correct: innocent until proven guilty. However, I am quite confident that he WILL be proven guilty at the trial. I have a feeling that the prosecution has much, much more against him than what they presented at the preliminary hearing.

It is unfortunate that MJ died, but it is a known fact that he had been using illegal aneastesia for years. It finally caught up with him. MJ paid for doctors all along to supply him with illegal drugs. You live that way, you die that way.

Even if this murderer gets a full sentence, it only amounts to a slap on the wrist for murdering one of the most generous and kindest people in the world.

There is no justice in the charge or the potential sentence he is going to receive. Its a small price to pay for a man who is in debt with the intent to write a book to cure his debts.

Trust me when I say, he knows the morbidly curious will buy his book and this alone is a perfect motive for murdering Michael Jackson who made the mistake of trusting this evil man "to do no harm."
