Remember that Dr. Conrad Murray documentary that was being shopped around to various news outlets like CNN and NBC after the convicted killer of Michael Jackson sold the story rights to a production company?
Well, it turns out his lawyer didn't think that was such a hot idea. In fact, defense attorney J. Michael Flanagan told sources it was a flat out "mistake" and never approved of it.
However, he says that the doctor really needed the money because "the judge back in January had basically forclosed Dr. Murray's ability to earn a living" after suspending his medical license.
Flanagan goes on to say that with no savings in store to deal with such an expensive trial, "the documentary did front some of the cost for his defense."
In the end, it was waste. If Murray had known he was going to get 4 years in the slammer for administering the drugs that led to the King of Pop's death, maybe he would have put it to better use and given it to his family.
