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....

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.

Wow Harvey, I think you just threw your respect out the window. Posting a story about Murray (on top of it a regurgitated one) today? You could have least of waited a day. No respect for the dead. So here is my survey:

Has Harvey and TMZ sunk to the lowest of lows now to anything to do with Michael Jackson??? that is a big YES.

Gees and I thought I have seen it all on this sight.

____________

ABSOLUTELY, HARVEY AND TMZ HAVE SUNK TO THE LOWEST OF THE LOWS!!!

THIS IS SO "GAY"!!!

INTERPRETING "GAY" AS OFTEN USED TO DESCRIBE SOMETHING STUPID OR UNFORTUNATE.

How is murray's defense going to prove that the autopsy report as well as the medical experts who stated that it was impossible for Michael to have injected himself wrong?

No way Murray is found guilty....maybe NOT guilty, much more likely is HUNG jury. But it will cost him his license, at least a lengthy suspension.

At MINIMUM, Murray should get manslaughter. He's a terrible doctor, he should never have given Propofol in the home, never as a treatment for sleep, never without monitoring equipment. The very fact that he treated Jackson in his home with Propofol is proof of malpractice.

If "DOCTOR" (notice the quatation marks) Murray is innocent then I am Barack Obama. This QUACK adds insults to injury by claiming that he is innocent. UNDER 17 TEENAGERS who have done less offenses that Conrad F'ing Murray were tried and convicted of second degree murder....even first degree. It is called "felony murder" and "depraved heart murder" which means you expose someone to such high risk that your negligence caused fatality. a man who were at home when his unchained dog killed a child was tried and convicted of second degree murder! Murray can bemon all he wants, he is GUILTY! The fact that ed Chernoff says Murray shall resume his life after Trial is COMICAL. Fans who already tried and convicted him for murder will never let him forget this.

TMZ, how about adding these questions to your poll? "Would you let Murray be your doctor?" "Should he jump from the tallest building?" "is it fair that this quack is breathing today when his imcompetence robbed the world from a man who had so much to look forward to?"

Conrad Murray, I hate you!

and No, Michael didn't kill himself. EXPERTS AFTER EXPERTS TESTIFIED SO AT THE COURT! Read before you spread falsehood!

It would have been nice of TMZ to hold off on stories like this and Jermaine until tomorrow giving his fans at least one day peace.

TMZ sure does try to pretend to care about things but it's all lies. By posting these stories they draw not only the fans but the trolls at the same time. Let's face it every hit is money right?

Harvey I bet your sweating with TMZ falling to number 3 huh?

TMZ bus overpriced, two many repetitive story lines, incompetant staff, the list goes on and on.


Peace.

Listen to portray Michael as a drug addict ever. Those who have no pain and whose soul is sick can not understand it.If the soul is so deeply hurt often help only drug yet to service the day to some extent.But that does not mean they are taken continously.If Michael would have been so dependent on the autopsy would have shown what else.I know how it is when the soul suffers so stop insulting Michael. Think rather of the charitable institutions which he supported the singer and dancer.This is Michael Jackson.

I guess the same could be said about MJ escaping justice on his child abuse charges. Divine justice seemed to have happened to MJ -- a few short years after the jury acquitted him -- he was taken out of this world in such a non-glamorous way.. MJ got "divine justice" - it seems.

Even Harvey has stated during his live shows that there was A LOT of evidence against MJ in the Jordan Chandler case -- A LOT.. a ton of it...

Money helped MJ weasel out of getting thrown in the slammer, but he ended up dying a frail, drugged out, unhealthy bag'o'bones and a HAS-BEEN..


michael jackson showed up in court, the chandler men did not...
not the kid, not the dad, not the loud mouthed uncle ...they all went to great lengths NOT to show up ..they only threaten civil action.when they can try and scam money..

harvey is not working for PBS..
harvey is running a tabloid site that makes lots and lots of money painting Michael Jackson in a negative light
if mj was convicted of anything , places like this website would have made a cottage industry out of it, much like they are out of his death..

harvey job is to present one side of the issue..the ugly side
thats why he is working at a gossip site.
he even said BEFORE he worked here that if the sheriffs interviews came in from 93 ,it would help mj..even had the tape where corey feldman says SOMEONE ELSE molested him and they didnt give a hoot...
that child molester must have been a white man , because they completely ignored what he said..pfft

harvey also didnt even mention the father of j chandler blowing his brains out when the fbi files were coming out , which he didnt mention either on this site , found no wrong doing on mj part after following him around for a decade, but plenty on the prosecutor..
..mj was set up by a mental case deadbeat parent with the help of a tabloid reporter, bigoted district atty and the brilliant strategist larry feldman in 93/94 and the 2005 garbage was the exact same group using the same m.o.....greed, jealousy, racism, and revenge..
mental parent with a different kid as the vehicle to the bank.


so so happy that all this stuff is in court records and the frozen in time seminar..
btw.
where are the remaining chandler men anyway..

none of them would go anywhere near a court of law..they all ran like rats..
and since the verdicts not a word from family spokesman ray chandler..nada , nothing...

there are so so many beautiful tributes to the memory of michael jackson today,all over the world., just the roses sent to the cemetery alone are breathtaking..... may he rest in peace and comfort..

The only thing to add to stefs comment, which pretty much nails it, is this so called doctor was bought and payed for big time.

I can see why your judgment is so impaired - you do NOT know how to spell. There is no such thing as "payed". It is PAID. Get an education, fool.
