Time to give it up!
Although the judge in Dr. Conrad Murray's involuntary manslaughter trial regarding the death of Michael Jackson previously ruled that the jury would NOT be sequestered, the doc's criminal defense team has filed an appeal on that decision!
As we've reported, although his lawyers argued that his right to a fair trial would be comprised otherwise, Judge Pastor, with full support of the DA's Office, was more concerned with the cost, which would exceed $500,000, as well as how difficult it would be to cut the members off from their families.
Jury selection officially begins September 8th, with the trial expected to start up in only a few short weeks.
Oh well! Too bad, so sad!
Good luck with that appeal, now!
