Wendy Murphy: Michael Jackson Interview Hurt His Case

Wendy Murphy, a former federal prosecutor in Boston and Jane Weintraub, a criminal defense attorney in Miami were on CNN on Monday to discuss ’s interview with Ed Bradley on ’60 Minutes’. Asked if it hurt Jacko’s child molestation case, Murphy responded, “That’s an understatement if ever I’ve heard one. I think the intention was clear to help his case by making him look pathetic and there were times he certainly did seem pathetic, perhaps even sympathetic in the minds of some. Look, Miles, he did four things that were very bad for him. No. 1, he reminded us and reiterated for the world and all his potential jurors that he thinks it’s just dandy for him to sleep in bed with little boys. We didn’t need to be reminded of that, he tried to back off a little by saying, I didn’t sleep with this particular child, but even if I did we did — you know, don’t need to hear that he thinks that fine. That killed him. He also lied three times. He lied about his dislocated shoulders as we heard in the package. There’s no question if he had dislocated both his arms he wouldn’t be waving his arms to his fans when he came out of the police station. There is no question that is not a dislocated shoulder we’re looking at right there. He lied about being locked in the bathroom 45 minutes. It was widely reported at the time that the whole process took about 30 minutes. You cannot sit in a bathroom for 45 minutes when you had to be finger printed and booked and the paperwork and so on. And the other really big lie was this bruise on his arm that he claims came from handcuffs. No way is that handcuff injury. Think about where the handcuffs were. His hands are behind his back. The handcuffs are down at his wrists. There is no way you get an injury midway up your forearm, on the front from handcuffs. That is another lie. This killed the guy’s credibility. Mark Geragos has taken leave of his senses letting him do that interview.” Check out the entire interview transcript here.

    Correct me if I’m wrong…but isn’t that guy Scott Peterson’s atty too? He got that guy booked on TWO counts of murder rather than one and fetucide. M. J. sure can pick em. He’s got the right idea though, hire a crap atty and then it’s obvious he’s insane.

    why can’t they just leave him alone. he’s just playing with the media at their own games. if they’re gonna make up lies to condemn him why can’t he make up lies to clear himself? fair? I think so. he deserves a peaceful life. the tabloids and media are just using him to make money at his expense. people can be so cruel. this is his life we’re talking about. nobody wants to see the king of pop in jail or convicted of such a serious crime that is likely to come out as a bunch of bullsh**.

    Yep. Watch out, a “Satanic Cult” might have molested the young kid instead of Jacko. *rolls eyes* Geragos is s*****!

    Stop whining! He is an unstable person. He looks guilty and believe his own lies. Go ahead and be sympathetic to the Devil.

  4. DJNY2AI3 says:

    looks guilty? there are plenty of people that are convicted of crimes the did not commit because they “look guilty” it comes down to the facts. whats true and what is not and that is up to 12 jurors to decide.

  5. FuturePast says:

    ^ looks guilty because it seems he is lying about being mistreated and doesn’t make him a credible witness. And saying there is nothing wrong/abnormal with sharing a bed with someone else’s pre-adolescent child is not great either.

  6. JLOVER101 says:

    I really don’t think he did this specific crime. However when there’s so much talk about things something is bound to be true. (perhaps another boy, who knows) and I think sadly he might be convicted, because there is no way he’s getting a fair trial, on the other hand some people might feel sympathetic for the KOP, or think they’ll get a payout if they don’t, and might not. who knows.
