Conrad Murray Documentary Could Hurt His Cause at Sentencing

by at . Comments

Dr. Conrad Murray's decision to film a documentary about the Michael Jackson involuntary manslaughter trial could hurt his bid for a lenient sentence, sources say.

Murray, who is said to be mulling suicide in jail, told British reporter Savannah Guthrie in the documentary, which aired on MSNBC, that he basically isn't to blame.

“I don't feel guilty, because I did not do anything wrong, I am very, very sorry for the loss of Michael. Michael is a personal friend. It's heartfelt. It's been painful."

Murray's documentary could be played by the District Attorney at the sentencing hearing November 29. He was recently convicted of involuntary manslaughter.

"The DA is considering playing excerpts of Murray's interviews. It's admissible, and completely legal. It's very compelling evidence," said a source close to the case.

Among that evidence? Murray telling investigators a very different series of events that took place, than what he revealed during what was aired on television.

“[D.A. David] Walgren hasn't decided if he is going to play the video, but it only makes his case stronger that Judge Pastor should sentence Murray to four years."

The late King of Pop's family members, along with the executors of Jackson's estate, John Branca and John McClain, hammered NBC for airing the documentary.

They wrote that MSNBC "inexplicably will showcase [Murray] in primetime Friday night as if he is worthy of celebrity," while slandering the victim in the process.

“Dr. Murray's victim, Michael Jackson was a loving father, an incredible talent and someone who had much left to give the world. Dr. Murray is a convicted felon."

"A judge felt compelled to have him jailed immediately after the jury delivered its verdict. He is not someone NBC Universal should be giving a platform."

The documentary also highlighted the talks between Murray and his lawyers, Ed Chernoff and Michael Flanagan, bashing Michael Jackson to various degrees.
