The Associated Press reports that the defense lawyer for Michael Jackson's doctor said the King of Pop was so distraught over deteriorating finances that he essentially committed suicide. What an icky, sticky accusation to make. Didn't anyone teach this lawyer not to speak ill of the dead?
The statements by attorney Edward Chernoff came during a pretrial hearing in the case of Dr. Conrad Murray, who has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter in Jackson's death.
What do you think of this defense tactic?
