Although the King of Pop’s personal physician is due in court today to fight the charges against him, he isn’t expected to plead guilty

Will Michael Jackson‘s untimely death finally be avenged? The D.A. charged his personal physician, Conrad Murray, with involuntary manslaughter Feb. 8.

According to the report, the D.A. alleges that Dr. Murray “did unlawfully, and without malice, kill Michael Joseph Jackson … in the commission of an unlawful act, not a felony; and in the commission of a lawful act which might have produced death, in an unlawful manner, and without due caution and circumspection.”

The world was shaken when Michael, 50, died of cardiac arrest in Los Angeles June 25, which the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office says was caused by complications arising from a Propofol overdose administered by Dr. Murray.

The doctor is expected in court this afternoon and allegedly will not plead guilty. If convicted, he will serve a maximum of three years. Bail is expected to be set at $25,000.
