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?
