With the preliminary hearing months away, Dr. Conrad Murray is currently in Houston treating patients, according to his attorney Ed Chirnoff. Chirnoff's office tells X17online exclusively:
- "He's eagerly awaiting the chance to tell his side of the story. We've kept him from talking because there are too many rabbit holes that he could fall into."
Murray has been charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael
Just last Friday, the Texas Medical Board entered an agreement with the doctor stating that he is prohibited from administering general anesthesia. The Nevada Medical Board is already gearing up to enter the same agreement.
Murray's defense team tells us they are still waiting for all of the prosecutor's evidence before the case can move forward:
- "We have no idea what our defense is going to be. It's gonna be based on the prosecutor's theory which we have not received. Dr. Murray has never said that he knows what killed Michael Jackson. That's why the autopsy was ordered."
According to Chirnoff, "You may find after you are done watching the trial, that it is not nearly as cut and dry as prosecutors have presented." As for the possibility of a plea bargain, he adds, "Plea bargains are for guilty people."
Various theories have been floating around that Murray may not be the only doctor responsible for Michael's death. Online reports have also suggested that the LAPD botched the investigation so badly by allowing people to come in and out of the home following Jackson's death, possibly contaminating the crime scene.
A source close to Dr. Murray adds, "Right now, he's been more upbeat than ever before...especially since the death of Michael Jackson. Remember, Conrad's been living under the assumption that he's been charged with Michael's death. He was greatly encouraged when the judge did not take away his license in California."
"His main goal is to continue his practice and support his family," according to our source.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for June 14.
