It could be argued that Conrad Murray did a lot of things wrong over the past few years: giving Michael Jackson propofol, for instance, or leaving the King of Pop alone after having administered the drug.

But according to Murray's lawyers, the doctor's biggest regret is that he didn't testify on his own behalf during his trial for involuntary manslaughter last year.

Reuters reports that now that he's sitting in jail with nothing but time on his hands to think about what went down, Murray believes that if he had taken the stand, he could have explained to jurors what went down in the final hours of Michael Jackson's life that only Murray knew about.

One of Murray's lawyers, J. Michael Flanagan added that it was on the advice of the other lawyer on the case, Ed Chernoff, that Murray didn't testify.
