Judge OK’s Televising Michael Jackson Manslaughter Trial

Cameras allowed in the courtroom with Dr. Conrad Murray and start date moved up to March 24.

It’s going to be a thriller.

The judge in the Michael Jackson manslaughter trial announced Monday that he is going to allow TV cameras in the courtroom.

Judge Michael Pastor also moved the start date of the trial four days forward to Mach 24. 2011.

Accused of unintentionally killing the pop superstar, who died on June 25, 2009, without malice with an overdose of propofol and other drugs, Dr. Conrad Murray could face up to four years in prison if found guilty.

Murray, who also faces a civil suit from the Jackson family, certainly will be fighting in the court of public opinion as well as law now. As long as they have the “absolute least intrusive placement,” Judge Pastor has given cameras permission to film the trial, which is expected to last about a month and a half, from start to finish.
