I'm so confused.... in my trial the expert doctor was asked if this act was below the standard of care, and he said well it is illegal for one, defense objected and said that he could not advise the jury of the law. So when do we actually get to show the jury the statutes? and say its illegal?

It sounds like the alleged criminal act was not necessarily so clearly defined as criminal or fitting within the criminal statute. Just a guess, not having more data. This is a question you should discuss in depth with your own attorney.
