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.

Murray is not registered with a DEA# in CA. Murray knows it's unlawful for him to administer a controlled substance in CA. Propofol (the murder weapon of choice) is not a controlled substance. Murray orders the drug(s) and have them shipped to his girlfriend's house. Murray waits until the final night of rehearsal knowing that Michael did not eat dinner. The surveillance cameras conveniently are not working or were destroyed soon afterwards. Murray kills Michael with a lethal dose of Propofol (a powerful anesthetic). Murray does not bother to go and get Michael's breakfast as usual, normal and expected. Murray yells for Prince and one security guard. The security guard helps Murray clean up the crime scene. Finally 911 is called. The EMTs know that Michael is dead. Murray says no take him to the hospital (murray is playing games with the time of death of MJ). Murray refused to sign Michael's death certificate. Murray did not tell authorities about all the drugs he gave Michael. Murray has proven himself to be a liar. Murray is guilty of premeditated first degree murder.

What in the world happened at that house from 6:00pm on 6/24/2009 thru 12:20pm on 6/25/2009?????

there are so many unintelligent comments on here. the judge, the da, the paramedics, the police officers all felt this is invol manslaughter. why do you think your comments make any since to us. the facts remain that dr murray did something unethical, illegal, tried to hide evidence, lied to the paramedics, the doctors and the police, he did not know cpr, he did not have the proper medical equipment, he had no regards to michael jackson's life.....i can go on and on. he should have been charged with murder 2 with the lessor being invol manslaughter and let the jurors determine his faith. dr murray killed the most famous man in the world. dr murray did this for one thing and one thing only....Greed of money!!!!

Doctor Conrad Murray is a sociopath.He knows damn well he is responsible for Michael Jackson's death yet he keeps saying he is innocent.There is a special place in HELL for sociopaths like Dr. Conrad Murray.

my opinion    

The judge is absolutely right...he said, Dr. Murray is incompetent & negligent as a doctor...I'm sure he will serve some time in jail, the drama begins if he knows of any other doctor that had a hand in the death of MJ he will tell.


RIP MJ

Love the Jackson's

Love,Peace,Kindness&Respect makes a better world for us ALL!!

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.Download, free, 3 letters to help you or your loved ones avoid brain damage or death @ www.drbarryfriedberg.com.

All I can say is WOW. Dr. Death looks pretty serious in that arraignment photo (it still mystifies me why TMZ seems to be the only media outlet keeping up or showing expressed interest in this so-called cardiologist/killer in Court and outside). Why aren't cameras following Dr. Death around everywhere? Alas, this Michael Jackson death mystery saga continues; it's a sad scenario, while at the same time being exciting, intriguing and so Michael-controversial. Any surprise Conrat is pleading innocent? Of course I am a lifelong MJ fan, and I adore him like millions of others -- to be truthful, after almost two years I am still reeling from his sudden 'departure'. I say 'departure' and not 'death' because I am still on the fence as to whether Michael is actually dead or not, but leaning more towards him being alive. And before you non-BeLIEvers start getting on our cases and ranting about us being delusional about MJ being alive, ask yourselves if you have ANY concrete proof that he is actually dead. The answer is a concise NO! (Note: last night I reviewed the memorial video when the Jackson family did the hug-huddle on stage after Marlon's very sad and emotional speech, and I clearly saw Jackie laughing and trying to hide his face). Everyone needs to watch that part of the memorial again and see what you would surmise from it. Everyone with even a minimal level of intelligence knows there is something very fishy about this whole thing, including Conrat's involvement and whether he is a willing participant in this well-planned joke. Maybe Conrat became involved in MJ's mystery departure without his knowledge and was used. If Conrat was used by Michael, good for Conrat's butt as he was a beligirant, tyrannical a-hole trying to exert his authority and admonish Ortega and others to "leave Michael's health and mental issues to me" after Ortega's warranted concern over MJ's health during TII rehearsals. They did leave it to Conrat and look what happened: he screwed up big-time. Conrat cared nothing about MJ -- only $$$$. There is a saying that sometimes "the hunter will get captured by the game." I hope that is just what you did, MJ -- you, the intended prey, turned around, set your trap and captured all the vultures and jackals that were hunting you and trying to kill you. The joke is now on them!!! I hope we will all find out just what is actually going on with the upcoming trial, the true facts will be revealed and that justice will prevail for our MJ one way or another. WE THE FANS JUST WANT TO KNOW THE TRUTH. DOWN WITH CON-RAT MURRAY!! WE LOVE YOU, MICHAEL--YOU ARE STILL THE KING OF POP AND THE GREATEST ENTERTAINER/MOST FAMOUS PERSON IN THE STRATOSPHERE and we will always BELIEVE. THE TRUTH WILL PREVAIL SOON!!

typo:
Also the home had to be cleaned out as it was only a rental. Not that she would be cleaning the home personally but Michael's furnishings and other equipment would have to be removed, stored, or sold at auction.
