Thomas Mesereau, Michael Jackson's former attorney, has come out swinging at Dr. Conrad Murray's defense team and the theory they will reportedly use.
Of reports that Murray will claim Michael Jackson killed himself, Mesereau scoffs and blames MJ's death squarely on Murray, as the star was "not suicidal."
"The defense lawyers have to do something. What they're gonna try and do is deflect attention from their guilty client onto Michael Jackson," he said.
Mesereau successfully defended Michael in his 2005 molestation trial.
"The reality is Michael Jackson was not suicidal or self-destructive in the way they're trying to say," he added. "Hopefully their defense will not succeed."
While he's spot on as far as the defense trying some misdirection and putting MJ on trial instead of Murray, the "suicidal" comment is a bit off base.
The defense will say that a frustrated Michael MAY have killed himself by accident after trying to self-administer Propofol with Murray out of the room.
They may also argue he was too weak to perform, after years of being treated poorly by other doctors and by himself, to absolve Murray of blame.
