Dr. Conrad Murray's lawyer fears his client will not get a fair trial when he goes to court over the death of Michael Jackson because the King of Pop was so loved by people across the globe. The embattled medic has pleaded not guilty to a charge of involuntary manslaughter amid accusations he administered the powerful drug that killed Jackson last June.

Murray's lawyer Ed Chernoff insists the doctor will not be negotiating a deal with Los Angeles prosecutors because "plea bargains are for guilty people". But he worries about the impartiality of the jury in a case concerning the death of one of the world's biggest pop superstars.

He tells the Associated Press, "You may find after you are done watching the trial that it is not nearly as cut and dried as has been presented. One thing that simply will never be the truth is that Dr. Murray pumped a bunch of drugs into Michael Jackson and walked out of that room. He's not that kind of guy."

Murray has already agreed not to administer the anaesthetic Propofol or other heavy sedatives to his patients as a result of the police investigation into his actions. If convicted, Murray faces up to four years behind bars.

Well, he must be the kind of guy that pumped Michael full of Propofol and remained in the room at all times to monitor his client and ensure that his breathing did not stop. OR he must be the kind of guy that just simply refuses to do anything ethically wrong or illegal no matter how much money was dangled in front of him. What a laugh! Murry may not have deliberately killed Michael Jackson but he DID kill Michael Jackson. He should get manslaughter at the least.
