Dr. Murray's Attorney Speaks Out
An attorney for one of Michael Jackson's physicians says his client "should not be a target of criminal charges."
Following Jackson's sudden death, cardiologist Dr. Conrad Murray spoke with LAPD, and now officials from the coroner's office have requested another interview.
Ed Chernoff, attorney for Dr. Murray, tells Usmagazine.com, "The coroner wants to clear up the cause of death, we share that goal... We don't have access to the most important information in this case... the toxicology report." Chernoff added, "We're still in the dark like everybody else. Based on Dr. Murray's minute-by-minute and item-by-item description of Michael Jackson's last days, he should not be a target of criminal charges."
Chernoff confirms his client was "the last doctor standing when Michael Jackson died." "Dr. Murray is frustrated by negative and often erroneous media reports, he has to walk around 24-7 with a bodyguard. He can't operate his practice. He can't go to work because he is harassed no matter where he goes," the attorney said.
