Will Murray conviction be overturned?

Mark Geragos and Jeffrey Toobin react to Anderson Cooper's conversation with Dr. Conrad Murray, Michael Jackson's doctor who's serving a four year sentence for the singer's death.

In the surprising exclusive, Murray gave his account of his relationship with Jackson, argued why he thinks his manslaughter conviction should be overturned, and sang a song to explain himself.

Toobin says despite Murray not being a good doctor, he made a valid point about the role of Jackson's family in the story. "He is not the only person responsible for Michael Jackson's death. Michael Jackson himself is responsible, his bums and leeches in his family who are now even in death trying to profit off him...I think sorting out the responsibility for his death is going to be difficult in this case."

Geragos questioned if the doctor's interview on AC360° may be used in the wrongful death lawsuit Jackson's family filed against concert promoter AEG Live. Murray will assert his Fifth Amendment rights in that case. "Him talking does not help the family. His conviction does help the family."

Do Toobin and Geragos think Murray will win his appeal? Watch the interview for their answers.
