Conrad Murray's own attorney admits it -- doing the Michael Jackson documentary was "probably a mistake." We got Michael Flanagan talking about the 4 year sentence and the documentary ... which he says Murray only did because was broke.

Also, Flanagan explains why Murray didn't say a peep in court today -- and Harvey is baffled by one move the doctor's attorneys didn't make today.

Plus, the word no defendant wants to hear from the judge ... "Yipes!"

maybe i missed that part, but what i want to know is: is it actually ILLEGAL to administer propofol outside of a hostpital? or is it simply 'not recommended' by physicians? that would be a convincting point, but if murray did this, even when it is not illegal, how can he possibly be convicted of manslaughter? he did say jackson self-administered several other drugs prior, which he couldn't have known about. that's 'an error' but is it grounds for manslaughter? i don't know if it is.

I watched part of the do***entary on MSNBC, I got the sense that he was praying to a God of his own creation..he is very self righteous and a major egomaniac....It looks like he's going to have plenty of time to look at the "Man In The Mirror".

Doc Murray HAD to get the maximum sentence for manslauter. It still is NOT enough time for the taking of a human life.

At what point will he no longer be given the heading of "Doctor" being added to his name?

nobody important    

I'm curious to know why the judge directs the jurors of the trial to no*****ch the news, read newspapers, etc. in order to not get a biased opinion but it is okay for him to watch a do***entary airing on national television before handing down a sentence for the same trial. Seems like a lot of BS to me!

I actually don't think the judge had any business watching the do***entary until after he made his decision. Juries are supposed to stay away from TV, papers etc., so as to only be influenced what they hear in court. The same principal should apply to the judge, because obviously he could no*****ch that do***entary and remain fair. The do***entary influenced his decision, he said so himself. It seems an unethical thing to do, and it should be grounds for something, a mistrial or an appeal or something. How can a judge sit there day after day and tell the jury to stay away from this or that and then not practice what he preaches. Hypocrite. I think Murray is not the only one who should be losing his jobs. It's a matter of ethics and both the judge and Murray seem to be lacking a few.
