In case you missed it: Michael Jackson’s doctor, Conrad Murray was charged at the Los Angeles County Courthouse on Monday with involuntary manslaughter after the MJ’s death last June due to a lethal combination of prescription drugs.

The judge presiding over the new celebrity courtroom drama is Keith L. Schwartz. During the hearing, Schwartz stated that Murray acted “without due caution and circumspection” and “did unlawfully and without malice, kill, Michael Joseph Jackson.”

As Doctor Conrad Murray approached the courthouse, legions of Jackson fans were there screaming “murderer” as he made his way up the courthouse steps.

Michael Jackson's family issued a series of statements decrying the doctor's not-guilty plea to the charge of involuntary manslaughter.

"He's lying. He's guilty. Nobody was there but him," Jackson's mother, Katherine, told the assembled media while leaving court. "He's just trying to save his own behind. ... He killed him. He wasn't monitoring him."

Murray, who faces up to four years in prison if convicted, didn't make a statement following his court appearance, during which he did not interact with the Jackson family members, according to reports. The Houston-based doctor is expected to leave Los Angeles after posting $75,000 bail.

"Dr. Murray is doing fine. ... He's in good spirits," attorney Edward Chernoff said during a press conference after the hearing.

As one expert suggested in an interview with MTV News, it could be hard to find an impartial jury in Los Angeles, a reality Chernoff said he was ready to deal with. "It's going to be tough, but I think if we get the right jury, the right result will come in," he said. "This has been a nightmare for [Murray] for many different reasons, and one of the reasons is that he lost a friend."

I really hope Michael gets the justice he deserves.

I personally think 4 years and keeping his license is too lenient...honestly. Dr. Murray knew he was doing something wrong administering these drugs in the 1st place. He took the risk, and it seems because of this "risk" he could have killed Michael Jackson by not reporting that he wasn't breathing. When someone is not breathing you call an ambulance, and in this case if your tactics are not working, ESPECIALLY AFTER AN HR, Murray could have or actually did hold back MJ from being saved! You feel me? I'm STILL really sad about the whole situation.
