London (ANI): Michael Jackson"s doctor Conrad Murray will be free to work in California as he awaits trial. A Los Angeles judge said that he did not have any authority to restrict Murray, who has been accused of giving the King of Pop a lethal dose of anaesthetic, from working.

Jackson"s family members were present at the court to hear the ruling. Murray was denied charges of involuntary manslaughter of Jackson. A preliminary hearing will be held on August 23. Attorney General of California had earlier asked the judge to suspend doctor Murray.

He may serve up to four years in jail if found guilty. Murray"s lawyer said that he had no intention of working in California but insisted that he should not be banned from working in that state as it would affect his working in Texas and Nevada, reports The BBC.

Judge Michael Pastor said that the case had already been ruled over by a previous judge, and he refused to allow the attorney general"s application. “I do not have the ability to revisit a ruling by one of my colleagues," he said.
