Dr. Conrad Murray's defense team has brought out the big guns.
The physician's mother is among the latest of his friends, family, patients and colleagues writing to the judge who will decide Murray's fate at sentencing today.
Murray was found guilty this month of involuntary manslaughter in the June 2009 death of Michael Jackson, and Michael Pastor will decide how much time he does.
He could get up to four years in prison ... but will he?
Not if his mother has any say in it. "Nothing like this has ever happened to him before," asserted Murray's mom, Milta Rush, in a letter obtained by E! News.
"He has never been in trouble with the law before and I am barely standing, I am so scared and worried sick about him being incarcerated."
She may get her wish, despite what you might think.
