Michael Jackson - Judge Allows Jackson's Doctor Trial To Be Televised

A judge overseeing the trial of MICHAEL JACKSON's physician has given the green light for the court case to be televised.
Dr Conrad Murray is accused of administering the fatal dose of painkiller Propofol which led to the King of Pop's death on 25 June, 2009, and last month (Jan11) Judge Michael Pastor ruled there is sufficient evidence to warrant a manslaughter trial.
The case begins on 24 March (11), and on Monday (07Feb11), Judge Pastor agreed to let cameras into the courtroom - as long as they don't interfere with legal proceedings.
The judge said he wanted the "absolute least intrusive placement" of TV cameras and has ordered local news crews to submit detailed proposals of how they will work through the trial, which is expected to last six weeks.
If convicted, Murray faces up to four years behind bars. He has pleaded not guilty to the charge and is currently free on bail.

wow so we the fans can actually watch Murray go behind bars...4 years isnt eneough for killing someone especially "THE KING OF POP" MICHAEL JACKSON, I think the judges should really take into consideration the events around the MURDER that doctor was clearly in the wrong & was to busy with personal satisfaction of his own, when he should of been watching MJ since he gave him the illegal drugs in the first place..what an a**hole.....RIP MICHAEL LOVE YOU

Can someone please tell me in advance which dedicated TV channels are for this trial. I am so so keen to watch this. I hope in the course of proceedings they identify reasons to add more years into his imprisonment. No body with love for MJ will be happy to see Murray behind bars for only 4 years. Four years only???!!!! No no no no! Nothing can compensate the pain to loose Michael but 4 years is well too low. I love you MJ. Your loss is such a pain!
