Dr. Conrad Murray demands speedy trial in Michael Jackson case

Dr. Conrad Murray invoked his right to a speedy trial on an involuntary manslaughter charge in the death of Michael Jackson, requiring the case to begin by March 28.

"Your honor, I am an innocent man," Murray said after Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor asked him to enter a plea during his arraignment Tuesday.

"What's your plea?" Pastor asked again.

"Not guilty," Murray said.

    Unfortunatly we will never realy know, that´s the problem in this case....still, Mr Murray DID do wrong only by giving this medication outside a Hospital, no correct CPR, taking ages for calling the Meds....this has nothing to do with MJ being the patients, even if it was an unknown person, i would still go for guilty.

    RIP MJ and thanks fot the Walk true the years.

    The faster that this trial goes, the faster Murray's behind will probably go to prison! Whether Michael's death was an accident or not, I hope he serves time in jail. He was not honest in regard to his confessions to the police.

    @beezo, Michael was not guilty of the charges of molestation for the record!!! The media is the one that's calling him that.
