Michael Jackson's personal physician Dr. Conrad Murray should not targeted as criminal, attorney Edward Chernoff said late Tuesday on his law firm's website.
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, said Chernoff.
Investigators have requested a third interview with Dr. Conrad Murray who was with Jackson when he died.
The coroner wants to clear up the cause of death; we share that goal, Chernoff said in a statement. He was the last doctor standing when Michael Jackson died and it seems all the fury is directed toward him.
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, Chernoff added.
Murray has been interviewed twice by police, once immediately after the singer's death and again two days later. Police investigators say Murray is cooperating in their investigation.
A cause of Michael Jackson's death has yet to be determined. The coroner's office is expecting to release autopsy results next week.
