Michael Jackson: According To Yahoo News — LOS ANGELES – A lawyer for Michael Jackson‘s doctor said that there will be no plea bargain in the case of manslaughter, although he is concerned with whether an impartial jury can be seated for a trial in death of one of the most famous artists and idolized the world.
The case against Dr. Conrad Murray is complicated, related to drug dosing, medical protocols and other complex issues. Defense attorneys and prosecutors are preparing their legal strategies ahead of a preliminary hearing in the summer where much of the evidence be made public.
Ya, potentially damaging information about Murray has been revealed.
An autopsy report found Jackson died from an overdose of anesthetic propofol powerful. In a statement to police, Murray Jackson acknowledged taking the drug and other sedatives to help you sleep, leaving his head briefly. Cell phone records show that at least three personal calls at the time Jackson was wounded.
An employee of Jackson, who said he was in the room while Murray worked to save the pop star told police the doctor stopped CPR to collect medicine bottles.
Murray maintains his innocence, and his attorney, Ed Chernoff, said nothing that he gave Jackson “must have” killed him. Chernoff said the employee of Jackson gave a different version of the facts to the police in another statement.
“After you have finished viewing the trial is not as simple as presented,” Chernoff said the Associated Press in a recent interview. “One thing that is simply not the truth is that Dr. Murray pumped a lot of drugs to Michael Jackson and left the room. Not that kind of person.”
The King of Pop was 50 years old when he died June 25 at his rented mansion in Bel Air, on the verge of a series of shows back in London. Murray, a cardiologist of 57 years with practices in Houston and Las Vegas, was hired by the superstar look after their health during rigorous testing and plans to accompany Jackson to London.
Deputy District Attorney David Walgren try to prove that the doctor has acted with “gross negligence” by giving the singer propofol to help you sleep.
The anesthetic is supposed to be used in situations hospital for surgery and patients should be monitored closely by professionals from anesthesia. effects of the drug intensified when used in conjunction with other sedatives.
prosecution experts are expected to say it was unwise to use it in a private home without the proper equipment.
TMZ has reported that among the strategies of defense that is discussed is the possibility Jackson administered the fatal dose himself. Chernoff refused to discuss how they could defend Murray and said the final decision will not be until he hears the theory of the prosecution at the preliminary hearing.
Regardless of what prosecutors present, said there will be no plea bargain.
“Agreements with the prosecutor are for people guilty,” he said.
Realistically speaking, there is little incentive for either side to push for a plea bargain.
The prosecution filed a relatively minor charge a maximum sentence of four years, so there is not much room to negotiate downward.
“The district attorney not to overload the case,” said celebrity attorney Harland Braun, whose clients include Dr. Allan Metzger in Los Angeles, an internist and a rheumatologist who had a close relationship with Jackson and was godfather to one of the children of the singer. “They are charging what they think they can prove.”
Murray is already deeply in debt and writing to a felony laying him open to liability in a suit for civil damages. The Jackson family has spoken to sue Murray for manslaughter.
To obtain a conviction at trial, prosecutors have to walk through the jurors Jackson complicated medical history and the events that led to his death. This will be crucial, said Ellyn Garafalo, a prominent defense attorney representing a doctor accused in the case of Anna Nicole Smith on drugs.
“The biggest obstacle they have is to show what Dr. Murray has caused the death of Michael Jackson,” he said. “They’re going to have to say that he knew or should have known that what he did could have resulted in death.”
One element of the theory of defense, Braun said, it may be that Jackson was a demanding patient who insisted that propofol, a drug he had taken a long time.
“The theory of the defense of Michael Jackson he was needed, wanted, knew the danger and took the risks,” said Braun.
Garafalo said that although this argument can be made in an effort to convince the jury, not a legal defense.
“It’s like you asked someone to shoot me and he did, so not guilty,” he said.
Prosecutors allege that the physician has the ultimate responsibility for their actions and can not be acquitted because the patient may have pressured him to do something I should have known was dangerous.
Famous Jackson is sure to influence the case and are concerned about being Chernoff jury.
“There is a real concern that we have of getting a group of jurors who will come to court and will not have any preconceived notions of guilt,” he said.
In this case, advertising is everywhere, he said, so finding a change of venue is unlikely.
“The problem is that we have this thing about the world,” said Chernoff. “Even in the OJ Simpson trial, people in Uganda are not worried about him. But in this case, care in Uganda and elsewhere.”
