Conrad Murray will travel to Los Angeles and surrender to law enforcement if charged in the death of Michael Jackson, his lawyer told in an exclusive interview.

"In the event of charges being filed in connection with Michael Jackson's death it would be much cheaper for tax payers if I am able to surrender Dr. Murray myself," Murray's lawyer Michael Flanagan tells

"I am hoping the DA will make the right decision and allow me to do this."

Murray currently resides in Texas. There are rumblings that the Los Angeles District Attorney's office is preparing to criminally charge Murray in connection with Jackson's August 2009 death from "acute propofol intoxication." Murray admits he administered the drug to Jackson on the day of the singer's death.

Legal ace Flanagan is prepared for his client to charged as early as next week and would prefer to surrender his client rather than have law enforcement come get him.

"I believe the DA would be inclined to allow me to surrender him, but they have no control over the LAPD who have the final decision on what to do with Dr. Murray if he is charged," Flanagan told

"Dr. Murray is currently in Texas but if I am told by the DA to have him in a courtroom where he will be formally arraigned he will be there."
