Murray Trial

Jury Shouldn't Watch Nancy Grace

7/20/2011 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lawyers for Conrad Murray told the trial judge they don't want  Nancy Grace to pull a "Casey Anthony" on the jury -- so they asked the judge to prohibit jurors from watching her.

0720-conrad-grace-bn

Attorney Michael Flanagan argued that it was impractical to tell jurors they can't watch TV - because they simply will.  So Flanagan asked Judge Michael Pastor to sequester the jury, O.J. style.  The judge told Flanagan to file a motion and he'd consider it, although the judge did say he thought sequestering was both unnecessary and too expensive.

Flanagan pressed his claim for outtakes from the "This Is It" rehearsals -- something Sony doesn't want to cough up.  Sources tell us ... Flanagan wants the outtakes to show there were periods where Michael Jackson appeared to be on drugs. 

In a telling comment, Judge Pastor said, "This case is going to focus on the charge, not personal lifestyle."

If Michael acted imbalanced or as if he were on drugs it had to be because of the crazy combination of drugs the so-called doctor was pumping into him. This has always been Murray's fault and Murray's fault ALONE.

Michael Jackson was NOT a drug addict...the autopsy doesn't lie.....Murray lies...

When Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor asked if Flanagan would want jurors sequestered around the clock during the trial, the lawyer responded, "Every time Nancy Grace is on TV."

"We would like a decision made on the evidence that appears in this courtroom rather than commentary on the Nancy Grace show," he said.

Grace responded at the end of her show on CNN, saying "the doctor ... wants the jury sequestered from me, from us, claiming watching Nancy Grace will prevent a fair trial, then the jury will be biased, so I guess that makes us the good guy."

This is another BS story planted by the culprits. They want the world to know it's coming. Murray is going to go free just like OJ and most recently Casey A. I know what I believe in my heart what happened to Michael. I can't wait for this to be over. Personal lifestyle.....please here we go with the projected detachment/attachment writing style that Michael abuse drugs, but he didn't, but he did, but he didnt.........pleaszzzzz.

Michael was going to return to the staples center with TravisP at 2:00pm.......yet murray gives Michael propofol at 10:40am??? Murray was well aware of Michael's schedule. Travis was on his way to Holmby Hills when he heard the news.
Ms. Chase wondered why murray did not come downstairs......besides by 10:40 normally Murray would have left for the day. It was normal for Murray to return at night around 930pm......or after all the strip clubs shut down of course.....

murray is a liar and a killer.

Flanagan acknowledged outside court that the defense didn't find what they had hoped for — footage of Jackson appearing ill or impaired before his death.

Asked what conclusion could be reached from viewing the Jackson rehearsals, he said, "He is very talented. Even on his bad days, he's good."

Thanks! Trying to weed through the 12 year olds on here, so damn stupid. I just returned from LA on business last week. Every time I turned on the radio MJ was playing. No lie...it was great!

The thing about this is, it's not really cir****tantial evidence, Conrat already admitted he gave MJ the drugs..which killed him. Also, there is no comparison with the Casey Anthony trial, OJ trial (which both were cir****tantial) and MJ's trial back in 2005, there was nothing cir****tantial about that trial, it was the costliest trial in US history and the damn witnesses and the entire family weren't dead, they took the stand and directly testified under oath (cough, cough) against Michael Jackson. No comparison with the OJ trial, the victims were dead. MJ's trial, they were alive and WELL and lied, lied, lied, lied, lied and not ONE person in that court room, I doubt even Sneddon, believed them. There's the difference!

RIP, MJ.

California Involuntary Manslaughter:

Prosecutors can charge you with Penal Code 192(b) PC California's involuntary manslaughter law when you kill another person

without malice,


without an intent to kill, and


without conscious disregard for human life.26


The difference between involuntary manslaughter and killing someone by accident is that with involuntary manslaughter, you are necessarily involved in either

an unlawful act (not amounting to a felony), or


a lawful act which involves a high degree of risk of death or great bodily injury (where you fail to act with the proper caution)


at the time you kill the other person.27 By contrast, when you accidentally kill another person, you are not violating any laws at the time of the killing.

If convicted of involuntary manslaughter, you face two, three, or four years in the state prison.29
