No Plea Bargain For Conrad Murray

Doctor Conrad Murray will not take a plea bargain in the case of Michael Jackson's death.

The late 'Beat It' singer's personal physician is said to be adamant he did nothing wrong on the night of the singer's death - from acute Propofol intoxication - and will not plead guilty to a lesser charge, according to US website TMZ.

Murray has already pleaded not guilty to the charge of involuntary manslaughter and a source told the website he is "completely confident" the same result will be reached at trial.

It has previously been reported by TMZ that Murray's defence will rest on a theory that Jackson killed himself by injecting a huge dose of Propofol, which he was taking to help him sleep, while he was out of the room.

Meanwhile, Murray was in court in Los Angeles Superior Court yesterday (05.04.10), where a judge delayed a hearing to decide whether to revoke the doctor's California medical licence - meaning he is still free at present to practice.

A new court date has been set for June 14, where a decision whether to suspend him from practicing during the trial will be made.

Murray's spokesperson, Miranda Sevcik, told UsMagazine.com: "We're relieved that the doctor can continue to earn a living."

The hearing was requested two weeks ago by California Attorney General Jerry Brown, who asked for the suspension of Murray's California medical license, which the doctor's lawyers opposed.

The hearing was attended by members of the Jackson family, including his father Joe, who is "upset" at the delay.

Brian Oxman, a lawyer for Joe - who has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Murray - said: "Mr Jackson was upset that nothing had happened in regard to the attorney general request.

"They thought that was strange. Nothing was done. They feel that the case is moving at a snail's pace and the charges are still insufficient."

I can't beleive that Murray still feels that he has done nothing wrong. You killed someone Murray, face the facts & admit it so that you can go to jail. You have no conscience Murray. Any patient that continues to see you is either crazy or has a death wish. Michael trully believed in God & often quoted the bible. Romans 12:19 says do not take revenge my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay." says the lord. I have to beleive that as much good that Michael has done in his life that God will surely take care of all of those who hurt him including Murray, the Jordins, Arvisos', Diane Diamond & Martin Bashir etc...
