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.

MJ was at least smart enough to hire a doctor (at $150,000 a month) to get him blasted. I think the doctor was dumb for ordering gallons of propofol that he didn't even know how to administer properly.

More and more readers are saying that DR CONRAD MURRAY is NOT GUILTY.Why dod they feel that way,you can see the reasons as you read.One reason just might be other people are involved,that would be one cause for the JURY TO SAY NOT GUILTY.That is the LAW and the JURY can say that...NOT GUILTY it only takes ""ONE"" of twelve....

It's because when you're not posting, you're busy voting on the TMZ poll to run up the tally. Then you come back and post that the results are going in Murray's favor.....LOL!!!!!
The evidence says murray is guilty murder, and he does not have a defense!!!!

If other people are involved, the data imagery from the surveillance cameras would clear that up.....but of course the defense nor the prosecution seems to want that......hhhhhhmmmm

What's up with that Mr. D.A.???? What's up with that????

When the LAPD swoooped down on Michael back in the day, they took 16 computers from his home. When Michael died the same LAPD did not lift a finger to secure the home, his computers or surveillance. The death of Michael Jackson is a huge cover up. Conrand Murray was paid to kill Michael Jackson. The security tean was paid to look the other way and destroyed the surveillance information.
What are you going to do about it Mr.D.A.??? What are you going to do???

I don't know why everybody is sitting here screaming that he did or didn't because at this point it really doesn't matter. I don't know what part of the world you're in, but in the US of A it's not about whether you did or didn't-that's not the issue. The issue is can the prosecution prove that you did. So you see, you don't have to be innocent in order to be proven not guilty. And also, acquittal doesn't mean you didn't do it. it just means that you got away with it. Smooches

WOW these comments are grueling. It does not matter that MJ was addicted to pain killers or sleep aids. Dr. Conrad is a "doctor" and he is the one who gave Michael the drugs -- Dr. Conrad did not even know how to perform proper CPR and no equipment was present knowing that if something went wrong with this anesthesia drug it could kill MJ. Dr. Murray should be on charges for murder, nothing less! How can anyone defend a doctor who prescribed and administered anesthesia drugs that he was not licensed for? Exactly --- 110% Guilty!

Barry L. Friedberg, M.D.    

Patient abandonment is the worst offense when giving drugs for sedation.

Who gave the fatal dose of propofol or how much was given is a defense attorney's 'smoke screen' designed to create 'reasonable doubt.'

The only issue is Murray's failure to watch and monitor his patient.

The criminal issue is his delay in calling 911 until Jackson's body guard hid the propofol & Murray's failure to disclose to the paramedics what medication was given.

Our system presumes innocence until the finding of guilt but Murray's own public statements remove any issue of presumptive innocence.

Justice for Jackson's family will not come from the court but Michael's death may serve a greater social good by alerting the public to the dangers of anesthesia over medication (death, delirium & dementia) and the critical information needed to avoid those risks.

tiger is a fraud    

The troll who spam every site with a 100 nics need to be arrested. No justice for MJ..he killed himself a long time ago. He paid Murray, he bought the propofol, he neglected his purchased kids, used over 19 aliases to buy more drugs than anyone on the planet and was a con-artist.
