Lawyer Ed Chernoff is afraid of unfair trial for his client due to the fact that the King of Pop was so loved by people across the globe.

Dr. Conrad Murray's lawyer fears his client will not get a fair trial when he goes to court over the death of 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.
