Michael Jackson Manslaughter Trial to Be Televised
A Superior Court judge approved TV coverage Monday in case against Dr. Conrad Murray, whose trial has been advanced to March 24.
L.A. Superior Court judge Michael Pastor on Monday moved to allow television cameras to film the involuntary manslaughter trial of Dr. Conrad Murray, who faces up to four years in prison in the involuntary manslaughter case involving late pop star Michael Jackson.
The judge also advanced the date of the trial by four days to March 24, when jury selection will begin, reports Reuters. Pastor has blocked cameras from broadcasting jury selection, and he has requested proposals from local news crews to ensure the "absolute least intrusive placement" of a TV camera in the courtroom during the trial.
The trial is expected to last approximately six weeks.
