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."
