As long as I can god in my heart and you in my life.
I will be fine.
I have done all I could do.
I told the truth.
And I have face the truth will prevail.
Doctor Conrad Murray who -- of his faith may not be enough it is finally happening seven months after the death of Michael Jackson the doctor that Doctor Who admitted giving the King of Pop.
The powerful anesthetic which killed -- -- -- fall.
On Monday will finally be charged with Michael Jackson's death according to the LA county district attorney's office with whom I spoke yesterday.
Doctor Conrad Murray will be charged with involuntary manslaughter at the airport branch of the criminal court which as the name suggests is in the shadow of LAX.
If doctor -- is -- in custody and there's still some confusion about whether or not.
He'll be arrested by the LAPD and given one of those infamous perp walk so whether he'll be allowed.
To surrender more discreetly directly to the district attorney you'll then be arraigned.
On Monday afternoon arraigned and then they'll be a preliminary hearing and that's the way they will proceed with the case there will not be a grand jury.
Now if convicted Conrad -- will face between two and four years behind bar it's.
Joining me now from Los Angeles Jackson family attorney -- -- Brian oxman.
Doctor Michael -- has in the middle and does -- mean hero host of the hit show.
Judge hero joins me we we welcome you all to the to the program for soldiers what do you think about the charge of involuntary manslaughter.
I think it's the highest that they can go I I understand apparently want to hire charged are angry to think that he killed a man that they you know.
There is a greater men's worry or -- state of mind that indicates that a certain -- since.
But I think that this was a smart move by the pardon the DA not to overdo it I think yeah we've seen too many celebrity cases or celebrity connected cases.
And I think it fits and I think this will change for ever heard the legal landscape as it relates to.
The doctors and the treatment of patients who wore Indian celebrity patient.
It's what are you troubled that the case is taken so long to file against this -- not like there is anything new that we didn't know and report months ago about the -- -- full.
Which was so clearly out of line with the ordinary course of medical practice well I think he died on June 25 it's February right now I think they had to get there experts lined up.
I think it was a great deal of research this case is unlike any case that we have seen.
In a long time the idea of what others might say is a civil case.
Bringing it into the criminal justice system asking a jury who already have a sense of Michael Jackson had addictions that may be -- -- -- himself.
Can they prove its case beyond a reasonable -- -- -- a lot of -- went into -- and what about this unseemly squabble which is denied by the district attorney's office between the cops and the prosecutors the cops want very much to have him.
With -- early detective on both sides walked down the walk of shame and to then be surrendered to be arraigned.
The DA denies there's this conflict -- -- seems as if it is at least somewhat that -- true.
-- haven't -- -- -- myself I can tell you I suspect that there was -- it.
Want him in handcuffs they want the perp walk they want their guys next to one and the DA is saying look this guy doesn't have a criminal record he's not a flight risk he's not going anywhere.
And then the cops come back and they say hey look this is a homicide case are you giving -- special treatment and making it you know -- select it connected to a celebrity therefore we'll -- -- treated with more dignity than the next -- -- -- manslaughter.
-- have a point but at the end of the day they worked out well.
We'll be okay we'll -- on Monday.
Brian Cox and I know the family is unhappy that he wasn't charged with second degree murder is that is that accurate.
Yes -- role though and I am not very happy about this at all.
It seems to me that what we have is we have a Doctor Who repeatedly.
This anesthesia drug to Michael Jackson as a sleep aids so that he could go to sleep like you -- -- peas are up or sleeping pill of some kind.
I mean come -- on.
I was the one who was -- and up and -- warning.
This is dangerous the man is going to die from the -- -- which is inevitable.
I knew it was an apparent danger to life.
How come other people can now say -- I didn't know I really didn't mean it I'm sorry her Waldo.
I was the one who gave the warning and then when it happens to be told all it's just involuntary manslaughter.
I don't buy it at all why are you apparently scornful of that state.
Well you you know I think it's kind of interesting to say I knew all along when I may -- there should have been some intervention and and what's happening Brian -- due respect.
If it may be your feeding into the defense right now where if you as a stranger new you're not a medical doctor -- Michael Jackson no whistle while.
And did Michael Jackson.
But wait a second one of what about Joe Jackson told me specifically that he was barred from that rented mansion which -- son was living.
What about the implication from Joe Jackson and other family members judge.
That -- is more to it maybe they didn't care he lived and died because they have their various insurance policies carrying an already had their video shot I mean the feeling this -- have grander conspiracy could this be the beginning rather than the end.
The prosecution of those responsible for the death of Michael Jack.
I don't know that it could be the beginning I don't know who else we could charge I know that there were many people were complicit.
Civilly I don't know whether we get to the point where we've got a Conrad Murray administering pro football -- saying sedatives.
Not having the hospital resuscitation equipment that you needed.
Waiting thirty minutes to call 9101 they've got this doctor dead to right.
But if they want to hire I think the jury might have a lot of trouble how they could go.
Higher than go lower but they chose not to they don't involuntary Minnesota I had -- -- about don't ask you to -- withhold your comments on talk about another person.
The cases are so similar -- that you can give us.
I want to talk now about 32 year old actress Brittany Murphy who died last month her controversial husband the unemployed British screenwriter Simon -- Jack.
Is being portrayed as the villain in her death is being portrayed as a drunken bully living off a woman that he married because his these had expired.
And whose career that he helped ruin because -- his -- not just conduct watch.
Most of medications in mind.

You know hard smiles stopped on December this.
When we -- from Puerto Rico so obviously this medication how.
This reminds -- and britney's mother Sharon will be appeared on The Today Show last month he denied reports that the star of clueless and eight mile.
Was just another in the melancholy Hollywood tradition of drug abuse but -- LA coroner is labeling her death accidental.
The coroner confirms that it was caused by pneumonia.
And most importantly.
By multiple prescription drug intoxication.
The -- goes on to say that britney's death was preventable.
If only she had seen a doctor in the last days and weeks of her life.
Because of the rooms because she changed it -- Hollywood is a village.
And once you have said the villages.
-- -- And they gos -- and -- room.
And I have blood on their hands and I hope to worsen very hot water because the way that -- can renew my -- she was alive.
But who exactly has blood on his hand it's just two weeks before she done.
Britney was fired by Warner Bros.
from performing in the sequel to the animated hit movie happy.
For a time on check blame the studio for the stars them and threatened to say.
Can you comment.
About the city of millions -- -- murdered.
If he's looking for justice perhaps -- -- should look in the mirror.
The us now that it's clear drugs played a role in her debt month -- lawsuit is probably a non -- Add -- that that fact that she was actually fired from two films because of alleged bizarre behavior.
A month before she was fired by Warner -- Britney was also fired from a feature film name -- caller.

Might have contributed to her drug use and debt.
If you would imagine a young woman and young actress with incredible.
You can't read you have pneumonia you're anemic.
You have this chronic pain right and you're taking cough syrups and all of these medications which could lead into.
Not being able to use the restaurant and that could lead you to be obnoxious.
And and and public.
Every story needs a -- -- month Jack said after his wife's tragic death concluding.
And everyone decided it is me.
And on that point ladies and gentlemen I agree with.
Go do Michael -- the famed forensic pathologist doctor he you have Brittany Murphy Anemia and ammonia right multiple drug intoxication.
-- the Michael Jackson that we've gone over high heat -- terror Anna Nicole Smith is it all of a piece.
Well I think what to all the pieces that the cause of death thus far released by the congress -- this is is is not very clear.
If you -- in ammonia it's not accident.
And people don't die at home with the mom and the husband president of pneumonia of Anemia the most significant feature that's been.
Indicated the deficit to begin is the prescription drugs.
