Dr. Murray Will NEVER Cop a Plea in MJ Death

6/25/2011 6:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources directly connected to Dr. Conrad Murray tell TMZ ... the Doc will not accept any plea bargain from the L.A. County District Attorney in the Michael Jackson manslaughter case.

0624_conrad_murray_mj_ex

We're told Dr. Murray feels so strongly about his innocence, even a plea with no jail time would be out of the question. 

Fact is ... Dr. Murray shouldn't hold his breath, because no plea bargain has been offered and sources tell us the D.A. will not offer one.

As for Murray's defense ... we're told the centerpiece revolves around the fact that only two people were in the room around the time MJ died, and Murray insists he did not administer the fatal dose of Propofol.

The operating theory of Murray's lawyers -- when the Doc left to go to the bathroom, a frustrated MJ woke up and administered the fatal dose himself in a desperate attempt to get some sleep.

So we ask ...

I had thought Michael did slowly kill himself, with all his doctors that enabled him. Rabbi Schmuli has tapes of Michael and he was very unhappy and very aware of his actions. Dr. Conrad is guilty, but not of murder, but of neglect and greed. We lost the King of Pop by so many factors, he was a genius who was very intelligent.

Mr. Clean jealous of kate

It will never ever end, MJ's fans will always think of him as a God who was not a drug abuser, who was a SAINT, and was murdered. Others see him-some as a pedophile, where some kids have never come foward (and yes, I know, the last case was BS, a family smelling $$$$), a con artist that stole tapes from Paul Anka, (big embarrassment for the estate with that BIG Thing with the handcuffs and briefcase escorting the case to be delivered and it was an old so so song of Anka's, and Anka was NICE ABOUT IT). MJ was in deep debt when he died, but he still was a big enabler to his family ('cept Janet, maybe laToya, and not to Reba)Those idiot brothers NEVER GREW UP BECAUSE OF HIM. NEVER LEARNED RESPONSIBILITY. In Debt, he put his mother into a MANSION! She did not need a mansion, a nice house maybe, but not a mansion and all that money a month. HE WAS THE SUPREME ENABLER AND BECAUSE OF THIS, NOT ONE OF THEM HAD THE BACKBONE TO COME FORWARD TO TRY TO HELP HIM COME CLEAN. His death, HIS FAULT, BUT HIS FAMILY STOOD BY AND WATCHED! They did not want to lose their allowances, so it was better not to talk to him then to help him or keep him from DYING!!!! So, in guilt, they blame others!!!!

SUN Scottt

In my opinion Dr. Murray was at worst an "ENABLER", and is not a murderer, quite the opposite. Wether he died with the Propofol or not, it was going to happen sooner than later. I (being a former prescription pain killer addict), know that it was just a matter of time. This addiction leads to 2 things: Jail, or Death, and being Michael Jackson, you don't go to jail....

Lyell Carl

Enabling an addict is a crime, especially when it is a doctor doing it. Yes, Michael, like all people, are ultimately responsible for their own actions. But when others do actions that are obviously harmful (directly or indirectly) to another person they need to be held accountable. Basically, if Murray and other doctors refused to knowingly give him harmful medications Jackson would probably be alive today.

Mr. Clean wow

Dr. Murray accepted the position knowing full well what it entailed. He wanted all the perks that came with the job and along with that came the responsibility. He can't have it both ways. Dr. Murray took an oath to act in the best interest of the patient and he failed miserably. He should lose his license. MJ was a kind and gifted person. He was a humanitarian with a wonderful smile but he wasn't perfect and lived in a "bubble" at times. It's unfortunate he became addicted to painkillers and propofol for he was always against drugs. Unfortunately, it can happen to anyone as only too many know. It's a shame he couldn't find an alternative to propofol for his insomnia or at least taken better precautions.

SUN KikiOttawa

Dr. Murray is guilty of failing to put MJ’s health and wellbeing before everything else. Did Dr. Murray make MJ an addict? No, MJ did that but Dr. M certainly enabled, provided legal access to drugs and assisted MJ in his addiction. He deserves to be punished in an appropriate manner. That is to say, the public trial is not fair as had his patient been Joe Blow from Noweheresville, Arizona, none of this attention would be on him. He did wrong, but the prosecution seems to be geared to who the patient was not what the doctor did. He should be subjected to the same sanctions for his part in MJ’s death as he would in Joe Blow of AZ.

Lyell Stef

MJ was a drug addict...no doubt about it..but Dr. Murray was a doctor who did NOT keep the oath he took when he became a doctor to 'do no harm'. He, along with others, supplied MJ with drugs and in Murray's case, Propofol-something that was NOT to be used outside of a hospital/surgical facility setting and more importantly is NOT used to treat insomnia. Of course he's responsible. He left the room and left his patient while giving him the Propofol. He's an a**. Heaven help the morons who continue to use him as their physician.

Mr. Clean Satish Desai

Here is a suggested defense for Dr. Murray that might get him out of trouble:

Dr. Murray was a paid employee of Michael Jackson's promoter company - whatever the name was. In other words, Dr. Murray was not free to act on his own, as an independent professional who had control on what treatment he can give to his patient, without the fear of loosing his job. He was rather, obligated to follow the instructions of his employer, or else get fired.

As such, Mr. Murray (not Dr. Murray in this case) can not be held responsible for injuries or death caused by his actions which were performed under immediate control of his employer. The state would have to prove that Murray injected certain drug without the consent of MJ, in defiance of MJ's instructions, and with the intention of harming MJ.

To prevent such tragedies in the future, the State of California would have to pass a law prohibiting employment of physicians by their patients.

SUN Ziggy

I love Michael dearly, but he was an addict. I believe he was impatient, and frustrated, and likely gave himself a massive dose when he couldn't get to sleep. Having said that, Mr. Murray illegally brought Propofol into the house. He did not monitor Michael while he was under the influence of the drug, and he left the drug alone with the patient. These careless actions led to the death of Michael, therefore, he is guilty.

All this anger and outrage for a guy that if found guilty (he wont be) he will be placed under house arrest for a whooping 2 months. All these morons screaming for justice and for the courts "to throw away the key" need to come to terms with this.

I mean you are already out of touch with the real world, so I figured I would post another fact you clowns will ignore. But its ok because he will be found guilty, and then you will be forced to swallow your pill that "if found not guilty in a court of law there is NO way anything could have went on".

non,

I call BS on your post. I kept up with both cases, especially the last one. On the smokinggun - there is a ton of information on both cases. Vanity Fair has some interesting articles as well.

sorry i just got back home lanie..
you can call b.s.til the cows come home..i am calling facts,,,,14 not guilty verdicts, by people who heard testimony under oath in a court of law..
once again..did maureen orth testify ??
of course not ..
she had no credible information, just more made up accusations from people who mj had judgments against , for millions, made to anxious reporters trying to make a name for themselves..and that name is yellow journalism..

refer to the witnesses in the 1108 testimony..they all were self admitted liars..who had perjured themselves and were found to be acting with malice by a different judge in the same courthouse against mj.owed michael 1.4 million i believe plus what they stole from him..mj could have also gotten punitive damages according to the judge but he just asked for one dollar..

try taking a look at tom sneddon because that is going to be an infamous name in the history of the american justice system.

he was motivated by bigotry hiding behind concern for children..disgusting..
look no further then his laughing press conferences, on such a serious subject....
the people who looked at those children as a tool to use for their own purposes were the parents , the media , including martin bashir who had no regard for the young man he was making a career off of and of course ,law enforcement ..
if bashir truly was thinking of the child and how he was falsely portraying him ,by the childs own admission....why would he have put his face on tv..why wasnt bashir held accountable and sanctioned??


michael was right ..
this is going to be a historical case, regarding the abuse of govt power aided by the media in a symbiotic relationship that benefited, them , and a few sleazy families..

i really would like to know how many people on this site would be okay with a power crazed d.a.putting up a website to report criminal behavior ..on you!!..except they refuse to charge you with anything criminal, so you can not go to criminal court to defend yourself
and their best friends are tabloid reporters....
who are destroying your name in the press for profit..


..particularly if you were incredibly rich and everyone knows you are a vulnerable target, which is why the chandler parents sought mj out in the first place..mj never went looking for them

what a merry bunch of whores...


we all know the arviso was a straw dog for the chandler case and tom sneddon believed all the garbage in vg book/ diane dimond lies that have been shot down since ..
what an old fool..
well michael won in a court of law and now every day he makes more progress in the court of public opinion..
and the chandlers, the francia, and the arviso hide because they were exposed in that court of law.

see the laughter in the transcripts when francia testified and the flat out contradictions in-the arviso testimony.
if you are waiting for harvey levin or vanity fair or diane dimond to tell you the truth,well in the words of michael jackson..
you keep dreamin...

goodnight..:))

Akon was a true friend of Michael Jackson:

Akon puts E! reporter in his place regarding Michael Jackson
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9DQzxqXBK4k&feature=BFp&list=FLQWG0HIkz0T8&index=4

Akon wrote this wonderful tribute song for his friend Michael Jackson:

Cry Out of Joy ~*by Akon*~ Michael Jackson tribute
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OrmRYfRlshM&feature=BFa&list=FLQWG0HIkz0T8&index=5
another version:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FriR6G6o1e0&feature=related

Here are the lyrics. If you haven’t already done so, download (legally) Akon’s tribute song to Michael to thank him for saying what so many of us are feeling and for being such a good and loyal friend to Michael. These few lyrics cover a lot of ground. Michael was a fantastic singer, dancer, and entertainer, but he was most loved for the human being that he was: his character, integrity, honesty, fortitude, inner strength, faith, and desire to help others. He wasn’t just a superstar, he was a true leader: as Akon says, he “motivated the whole world to deliver.” Michael motivated people the world over to strive for excellence in their chosen fields or in whatever they did. Here’s a quote from Michael:

“In the end, the most important thing is to be true to yourself and those you love and work hard. Work like there's no tomorrow. Train. Strive. Really train and cultivate your talent to the highest degree. Be the best at what you do. Get to know more about your field than anybody alive. Use the tools of your trade, if it's books or a floor to dance on or a body of water to swim in. Whatever it is, it's yours. That's what I've always tried to remember." (Michael Jackson)


Lyrics: Akon

“Cry Out of Joy” (Michael Jackson Tribute)

You will, be missed, by all your fans
I clench, my fists, cause it’s so hard to withstand
If I had the power to change one thing, it'd bring you back again
But life's not promised and that won't change, im'a meet you there some day

In this lifetime I wanna thank you, for showing me the man in the mirror
In this lifetime I wanna thank you, you motivated the whole world to deliver
We cry out of joy (for you)
We cry out of joy (for you)
We cry out of joy (for you)
We cry out of joy (for you)
We cry out of joy (for you)
We cry out of joy (for you)
We cry out of joy (for you)
We cry out of joy
There's so much joy in our heart

Oh I wish, the world could see you the way I did
And I wish, they witnessed how a wonderful dad you were to all your kids
And I noticed it didn't stop there, saving children was one of your goals
Just donated all of your millions, so they could one day rule the world

In this lifetime I wanna thank you, for showing me the man in the mirror
In this lifetime I wanna thank you, you motivated the whole world to deliver
We cry out of joy (for you)
We cry out of joy (for you)
We cry out of joy (for you)
We cry out of joy (for you)
We cry out of joy (for you)
We cry out of joy (for you)
We cry out of joy (for you)
We cry out of joy
There's so much joy in our heart

One word for the media, please help the people see the love
Stop this garbage you're feedin’ us, show him for who he really was
Remember there was more to come, remember he's the chosen one
Remember him for wars he’s won, remember him for what he's done

Remember him for what he's done, remember him for what he's done
Remember him for what he's done, remember him for what he's done
Remember him for what he's done, remember him for what he's done
Remember him for what he's done, remember him for what he's done

In this lifetime I wanna thank you, for showing me the man in the mirror
In this lifetime I wanna thank you, you motivated the whole world to deliver
We cry out of joy (for you)
We cry out of joy (for you)
We cry out of joy (for you)
We cry out of joy (for you)
We cry out of joy (for you)
We cry out of joy (for you)
We cry out of joy (for you)
We cry out of joy
There's so much joy in our heart

Rest in peace and harmony, Michael
I love you, man

Jackson's debt was so massive that he agreed to 50 performances. What's more, his inability to sleep led him to coerce an equally desperate doc to sedate him. A recipe for disaster.

Nan,

You seem to have a lot of info about the 2005 trial. I was just listening to a recorded radio show online from about a year ago and the guest was some guy named Wagener. I've seen this guy on YouTube before -- I think he has some kind of law show and he has talked about MJ before. I think he also interviewed Mesereau. He seems kind of flaky to me, and I question his "facts," because in this broadcast twice he said that Janet Arviso claimed she was "raped" by the store security guards in her lawsuit, and as far as I know she claimed only that she was fondled. Anyway, this Wagener guy claimed that Michael's Neverland Ranch was raided 80-90 times by Sneddon's team. That sounds crazy. Do you know if there's any truth to that?

TMZ, what criteria did you use to pick your "TMZ Top Comments" for this post? Because virtually all of them call MJ an addict or favor Murray. I guess Harvey cherry-picked them himself. Must be his way of "honoring" MJ on the 2nd anniversary of MJ's death.

sherrymurph    

did anyone ever consisider maybe-just maybe-murry was under threat to his life-family members life if he did not adhear to mjs wishes! If you did not abide by mjs wishes you were history-proven by what he did to his own family! So-leads me to believe Murray was forced to stay under a threat-otherwise murray would've been history for saying no-mjs team just could not find a replacement fast enough! hence-forced to stay under threats!
Oh well-play with drugs-die by drugs-proven to many times! lol
mj was just able to afford better ones so he thought they were safe WRONG

No use for this man-he did bad things and bought plp! But very great entertainer and singer!

I have to say Michael Jackson was hooked on drugs. Hey, he had to support his whole family. From his parents to all his brothers and sisters except Janet. That wasnt fair to him as he had his own life and children of his own to take care of. It was a waste for him to feel he had no-one to turn to. To put his life back together. His family should be ashamed of themself's for turning the other way. I believe the Dr is at wrong, but I think in this case, it would of happened sooner or later anyway. Sometimes you just cant tell someone who is hooked the word NO! What a shame...May God bless his children...

sgrplum65- you are right-all drs treating mj are guilty-murray was just the last one there!-my feelings are-if murray has to go down-all his other docs that got him hooked should also go down!
sorry this happenened-but ya know-if mj needed to be babysat 24/7 by a doc so he did not od-why in the hell was he allowed to keep his children in his home-this man did not need a personal doc-but needed a hospital bed under 24 hr care if he was that bad!
Price of fame i guess!

I do not believe that Dr. Murray murdered Michael Jackson. Murder would mean that there was a motive and I do not believe that is true. I believe Dr Murray is guilty of manslaughter. He supplied the drugs that killed Michael so he should be held responsible for that. I think he should do some jail time and have his license taken away. Propofol was not supposed to be administered outside of a hospital. Dr Murray knew that. He was only thinking about himself and the money he was making off of Michael. Now the world has lost an incredible talent all because of careless, thoughtless actions on his part.

THIS IS PURE TRASH LIKE ALWAYS! I only came to say what I feel and think: Mike was killed by Murray but there are more people behind... People who is now swimming between many millons of dollars which are from his poor kids...
Murray killed Michael and there are proofs of that... Michael had problems in past with medicines,he said it. But when he was murdered, he did not have any problem. By himself, he used medicines which he really needed for his problems of health(Like Vitiligo, Lupus and others that we just know).
The questions here are really disgusting! This is not moment for this trash, we need Justice. J.U.S.T.I.C.E!!! But when money appears, verybody dance... That is all!
