Dr. Conrad Murray's Trial to Be Televised Event
A judge overseeing the trial of Michael Jackson's physician has given the green light for the court case to be televised. Dr Conrad Murray is accused of administering the fatal dose of painkiller Propofol which led to the King of Pop's death on June 25, 2009, and last month Judge Michael Pastor ruled there is sufficient evidence to warrant a manslaughter trial.
The case begins on March 24, and on Monday, February 7, Judge Pastor agreed to let cameras into the courtroom - as long as they don't interfere with legal proceedings. The judge said he wanted the "absolute least intrusive placement" of TV cameras and has ordered local news crews to submit detailed proposals of how they will work through the trial, which is expected to last six weeks.
If convicted, Murray faces up to four years behind bars. He has pleaded not guilty to the charge and is currently free on bail.
