Michael Jackson's private physician Dr. Conrad Murray faces a fight to keep his medical license - California prosecutors have filed court papers seeking to suspend it. The doctor, who is accused of administering the anesthetic Propofol which killed the King of Pop, has pleaded not guilty to one count of involuntary manslaughter, but has already been barred from administering such drugs.
And now, California Attorney General Jerry Brown wants Murray to stop practicing medicine as part of the terms of his bail. Officials at the Los Angeles coroner's office determined that Jackson died from "acute propofol intoxication" in combination with the use of sedatives. In a statement, Brown has called Murray's conduct "reprehensible". The doctor has denied any wrongdoing.
Dr. Conrad Murray who reportedly stopped giving Michael Jackson CPR to hide drug vials into plastic bags and remove an IV tube from Jackson's leg, denies the accusation through a statement from his lawyer, Ed Chernoff. Blasting security guard Alberto Alvarez, who came up with the allegation, the affirmation reads, "This statement was given more than two months after Michael Jackson's death and is inconsistent with a statement he (Alvarez) gave the police the day after Mr. Jackson was taken to the hospital."
"Further, his statement does not match up with much of the physical evidence found at the scene. We will not be trying this case in the press. We would ask the public to reserve judgment until after the people's witnesses are placed under oath and subjected to the rigors of cross-examination. We are confident that a fair trial will ferret out the truth."
