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.

Hey Cherwood. I was not talking about you when I referred to the "Verbal Spanking" one might get if one were to state their opinion to much. It was someone else that I have recently found out (through you) used to go by another nic.

Hi Lee lee - miss you girl!

AEG story that Michael was doing fine....once Michael said he wanted her on the Tour, wasn't she also considered an employee of AEG?

Hi Cherwood

Ms. Chase stated that she was personally interviewed by Michael and the children. I think she worked for him. her contract issues were resoleveed. after michael's death, ms. chase filed a claim with the estate and the executors settled with her. that's not murray's situation. murray went to AEG for payment. claim denied!!!LOL!!

Certainly, it all is being driven to that murray supplied Michael every night propofol so that that one could have a sleep. Though no one, except murray can't confirm it. АЕГ , as well as others, which was being around Michael knew nothing, noticed nothing the suspicious about Michael. But even thus mass-media continue to confirm MJ was addict or the depended one because of propofol . Where is logic?

The article by AP does not state who decribed the last 24 hours of michael's day. they quote Ms. chase about Michael saying a prayer after lunch and dorian holley (vocal director) about Michael's mood at rehearsal. yet the writer only stated that in the year since, a fuller picture of his last day has emerged.

....Shortly before 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jackson left his eight-bedroom mansion at 100 North Carolwood Drive in Holmby Hills, an exclusive Los Angeles neighborhood sandwiched between Bel-Air and Beverly Hills.
He got into the back of a navy-blue Escalade driven by bodyguard Faheen Muhammad. His personal assistant, Michael Amir Williams, sat in the front.
They traveled downtown to the Staples Center, where Jackson and his team of musicians and dancers were in final rehearsals before heading to London. Several people recalled Jackson being in good shape that night.
Writer never declares who gave him the information.......hmmmm!

hi again cherwood

just wanted to touch on this a little. i'm aware that the DA has not placed all of his cards on the table. Since public opinion is so important I just wanted the powers that be to know that what they've given us thus far in regards to murray is hogwash. that's all!!

I just can't believe that Murray claim to not know Michael's address, Michael's address was so easy to remember, If I could as Murray a question, I would ask him how in the world in the past weeks did he find Michael's house if he didn't know the address, when someone come to your house for the first time you give them the address and directions, I am sure he wrote these directions down, Murray is a big liar just like he lied to all of those women's and they feed into whatever he told them, sometime when a person lie so much they start believing their own lie and live in a fantasy world, another thing when security called 911 why didn't the guard say it was Michael all he said was it's a man in his fifties .

Barb - That same thought has crossed my mind since I heard it. How on earth can someone go to the same house night after night for several months and not know the address. Proof alone, that is lying through his teeth! Have you ever really listened to him talk? I have, and I told my kid brother, he even sounds like a moron! But thats okay, the more he talks, not only does he make himself look more stupid, but he will continue to trip himself up more and more. He has told so many lies, that they are not only becomming larger, but they are contradicting the earlier ones. He is only showing himself for what he truly is!

-Hey Lee lee! I think Sade got a taste of fame when she did her stint during the Prelim and now she's making her rounds.....Lord help....
-#702: Ulja, you're right, Murray's car could've been parked by someone else....perhaps he went to Hofsbrau in someone else's car and left his at Holmby.....
I remember reading that there was some suspicion that the Security guards were the ones who introduced him to Hofsbrau and would go with him......maybe they took a Security car........
-#704: Hey LC4Michael! Thanks for clarifying that for me. I often get passionate about defending Michael and may step on a few toes....just want to make sure they're not the wrong ones........
-#705: Mymjj5, you're right, Kai's claim wouldn't have been approved by the Estate if she was an AEG employee...forgot about that........
BTW: Thanks for the excerpt about the night of 6/24/09, I thought maybe there was another version other than this one....
Guess we'll just have to wait for the Trial to get to the bottom of what happened that night.....
-#709: barbara, yep--those 70's were a TRIP, no matter how young you were back then....
BTW, when I said that, I meant that the TRIALwill be televised. They announced it last week....

hi cherwood
I know what you mean. all of the media outlets recaped the anniversay the same way from the AP which does not identify the source describing what happened during the last 24 hours of michael's life. It's unbelievable that in a surveillance/cam corder/webcam/video phone era the case is heavily reliant upon ordinary phone records alone. not to mention the testimony of a proven liar like murray.
