Dr. Conrad Murray Case Now With the Jury

by at . Comments

Dr. Conrad Murray's fate now rests with a jury.

Yesterday, the prosecution made its closing argument that Murray is to blame for the death of Michael Jackson any way you look at it, and justice demands a verdict of guilty. He faces four years in prison if convicted of involuntary manslaughter.

Murray's defense attorney, Ed Chernoff, then came out firing at prosecutors in his closing statement, arguing to the jury, "They want you to convict Dr. Murray for the actions of Michael Jackson ... they just don't want to tell you that."

Murray in Court

Chernoff was direct, saying "Dr. Murray did NOT kill Michael Jackson" and that Michael Jackson killed Michael Jackson by self administering prescription drugs.

Chernoff claims the prosecution failed to prove Murray hooked MJ up to a Propofol drip before the star died ... and without a drip, can't prove he put MJ in danger.

"They can't prove a crime, and they REALLY need to prove a crime" ... Chernoff said.

D.A. David Walgren is then mocked that idea in his closing statement rebuttal ... telling the jury, "Poor Conrad Murray ... everyone is just working against him."

Walgren said Murray's treatment of Michael Jackson was littered with, "bizarre, unethical, unconscionable behavior" ... adding, "That is why we are here."

That may what earns him a conviction.

Murray's timeline of events is sketchy at best, and the defense theory wrought with speculation. But Murray's medical decisions are nearly impossible to defend.

We'll see what the jury says. Your view?

Mr. Murray needs to be held accountable for giving Jackson that fatal medication. He was the doctor! He should not have administered that medication to Jackson, knowing good and well that he was not suppose to, just because Jackson was famous. Murray should not have given that medication to Jackson simple because Jackson wanted him to. So Murray should go on ahead and serve that little slap on the wrist of four years. He's lucky he's not also serving four years and then some. Take that ass whipping like a man, Murray....And don't drop the soap!!! Heh, heh, haaaay!!!!

Propofol is not intended to be used in a bedroom! Nor be delivered to someone's home. When you're put under anesthesia, there are numerous people WITH you & monitors to keep track of vital signs... MJ left ALONE, no monitors = negligence in my opinion.

Well we all know he is guilty as all get up, he know he was wrong just trying to blame MJ because he is not here to defend himself.

Not guilty ! It is clear that Michael Jackson used his money to buy whatever he wanted !

Use your common sense folks..the man is a doctor ! That means he went to school with a desire to help people..it takes a special person to be a doctor. Michael Jackson was messed up a long time ago...it's a wonder all that cosmetic surgery didn't kill him much earlier..but we all know it was just a matter of time..The only thing this man is guilty of is poor judgement by falling under Michael's control and orders, but as far as I'm concerned Michael brought it on himself...this man may be guilty of letting Michael call the shots, but manslaughter ? Give me a break !

I just hope this isn't a case that the murderer gets off and our justice system fails again. The so called doctor killed Michael Jackson without the least bit of remorse this should have been a case of Murder in the 1st degree and life in prison without the possibility of parole. He's just like his father as the old saying goes an apple never falls far from the tree. He father was proven guilty for giving his patients dangerous drugs without monitoring them.... Only his luck was a little better they couldn't prove he actually killed anyone.... Thank goodness at least he's dead and off the streets now. Rot in jail Conrad you murderer!!!!!!!! Murray should remember Karma will prevail, what goes around comes around so he will pay for what he's done even if he's lucky enough to get off.

Dude, turn off your caps lock. What happened to "innocent until proven guilty in a court of law"? That's what the law says. So, until he's been found guilty, I must assume he's innocent. That's the basis on which this great country was founded.
