Dr. Conrad Murray to Enter Not Guilty Plea

Dr. Conrad Murray, the man reportedly responsible for Michael Jackson's death, will turn himself in to authorities on Friday.

"He'll surrender Friday," his attorney Michael Flanagan tells People magazine.

"I anticipate he'll be charged with one count of involuntary manslaughter, to which we'll enter a plea of not guilty. I expect that we'll have him first surrender to the LAPD where he'll be booked and then transported to court for arraignment."

Murray's people are currently negotiating the terms of his surrender with the District Attorneys’ office.

“We are presently negotiating with the district attorney’s office the surrender of Dr. Murray,” Conrad’s attorney Ed Chernoff said in a statement posted Thursday on his website.

“The specifics have not yet been agreed to and when the agreement is complete we will report further on this Web site.”

After a seven-month investigation the D.A. decided to charge Murray with involuntary manslaughter, but he only faces a maximum prison sentence of four years, which is basically like a slap on the wrist.
