Justice For Jackson, MJ’s Doc To Face Manslaughter Charges

- By Bossip Staff Categories: Arrests, Hollyweird, Lawsuits

Michael Jackson’s shady personal physician Dr. Conrad Murray may end up facing criminal charges after all. Pop the hood for more details.

Prosecutors plan to charge Michael Jackson’s doctor with manslaughter rather than take the case to a grand jury, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press Tuesday.

Prosecutors will file a criminal complaint against Dr. Conrad Murray, who practices in Houston, instead of taking the case before a grand jury, which is done in private, the official said.

The person is not authorized to speak publicly about the case and only spoke on condition of anonymity.

The complaint would be the prelude to a public hearing in which a judge would weigh testimony from witnesses to decide if there is probable cause to try him on an involuntary manslaughter charge.

Jackson died June 25 from an anesthetic overdose. Murray maintains nothing he gave Jackson should have killed him.

Murray arrived in Los Angeles last weekend in anticipation of a charging decision from the district attorney’s office, a spokeswoman said Tuesday.

“Dr. Murray is in Los Angeles for a dual purpose — on family business and to be available for law enforcement,” said spokeswoman Miranda Sevcik. “We’re trying to be as cooperative as we can.”

There is no official word on when an announcement about any charges might come. David Walgren, the deputy Los Angeles County district attorney handling the case, declined to comment Tuesday.

The district attorney’s office has for weeks been working closely with Los Angeles Police Department investigators to build a case against Murray.

Jackson, 50, hired Murray to be his personal physician as he prepared for a strenuous series of comeback performances in London. He died in Los Angeles after Murray administered the powerful general anesthetic propofol and two other sedatives to get the chronic insomniac to sleep, according to the Los Angeles County coroner’s office, which ruled the death a homicide.

Murray has denied any criminal wrongdoing.

“We continue to maintain that Dr. Murray neither prescribed nor administered anything that should have killed Michael Jackson,” Sevcik said.

Without witnessing the actual night Jackson died or the proper medical training who are we to judge whether or not Dr. Murray should be held responsible for MJ’s death? But from the reports we’ve read it does seem as if Michael was over-medicated. R.I.P. Michael Jackson.

    Justice for MJ! He is; however, innocent until presumbed guilty.

  • I'm Just Me...Keeping It Real Since: 1983.....73 Days!!!

    Good because I am not feeling his mumbo jumbo explanations! Not impressed with Conrad!

  • Heiress

    In my honest opinion,this man is guilty til a certain degree because MJ was a grown azz man that made the decisions to take certain drugs. Anyways,hope this gets solved soon so the man can rest in peace once & for all already.

    Btw,the pic above is quite amusing,it doesn’t even look like an actual human but a cartoon. Is it real or fake?

  • Heiress

    @brandimus:lmao don’t mean to laugh but I couldn’t agree more

  • hey now

    They need to hurry up and arrest his azz!

    BTW the “This is it” which is basically just film of Michael Jackson’s concert REHEARSALS was better than\the whole 2010 Grammy Awards show!

    It’s a D@MN shame! MJ was better than these artists today even when he’s was just practicing!

    That Dr. didn’t kill Michael Jackson. Too much money, pressue and too many “yes men” killed Michael Jackson. I love MJ just as much as the next fan (maybe even more) but let’s get real people. You think Murray was the first Doctor to illegaly give or prescribe something to MJ that shouldn’t have been given? That’s why there should be a CAP on medical salaries so that the line of ethics and greed don’t get confused. That doctor might have done anything to keep the money coming in and that’s wrong but let’s not put ALL the blame on him. MJ had been on a path for a looong time.

    HOW COME IS BA$TARD WASNT CHARGE 7 MONTHS AGO!!!?!!?!?!?! WE ALL KNOW HE HAD SOMETHING TO DO W/ IT!!!

  • Kanaan

    It does not matter if MJ was an addict. Doctors are legally held to a much higher ethical & professional degree. The medical intent for the drug was not used properly by Dr. Conrad – period….

    @Hey now
    You are absolutely right… but would you not agree that there would be less room for “error” and corruption if there was a cap on doctor’s salaries in general. Capitalism is not good when it comes to peoples health. I know that when you become a doctor you take an oath of ethics and proffessional responsibility but teachers in this country barely make a livable wage while you have medical “proffessionals” doing unnecessary surgeries and pushing just as much drugs as those dealers on the street. Something has to change about this system.

    what a joke. MJ wanted to get knocked out and wanted to get woke up. The good doc was paid to do that ish. Too bad homey died but that’s what happens when you f*** up your cash living like a b**** and then hire some rich folk to sponsor you then pimp you out with a 50 show gig in one freaking place. WTF! Murray used his med creds to get the dope and made side bread selling medical narcotics for non regulated use. Happens all the time. Too bad you MJ lovers can’t see that.

  • nunya bizness

    He’s a murderer. Lock him up!!

  • Camille

    Physicians in Europe make far less money than their American counterparts, and they provide a higher quality of service. These doctors are so egotistical it’s disgusting. I think they should be allowed to make up to $500,000 per year. Plus, they need to stp pushing all of the medication.

  • redbonekillbill

    @ I smashed usher-so wrong!

    Finally! I think its murder but I know that wont stick.

  • AHA! AHAHA!! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! AHA!!! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA- AHHHHHHHHHHHHHSHADDAAAAP!!!!

    What i would agree to is a European style health care system where everyone is covered thru a National Health Service system that sets physicians rates. But to tell Doctors that they can’t profit or have a cap in our present FOR PROFIT health care system would be unfair. Pharmaceuticals Companies, Hospitals, Insurance Companies are all allowed to PROFIT off the illnesses and misfortunes of others. So the only way I would agree to a cap on doctor salaries is if there is a cap on ALL health care costs.

    The main problem is this man was being paid a truckload of money to monitor Michael while he slept and he failed BIG TIME. He was a doctor and should have known the side effects of using this drug and known that it could cause a patient to stop breathing if not monitored correctly. And why was there no type of hospital equipment on hand like defibrillators and respirators just in case of emergency. If nothing else he needs to be charged with the highest count of neglect possible.

    I guess OJ was innocent too….. Since we all know that MONEY AND FAME have NOTHING to do with JUSTICE…

    It’s sad to think that MJ would still be alive if the doctor(s) had simply said no. But all they saw was dollar signs. Mike was an addict, so of course he wouldn’t say no, that’s where the doctors come in. His death was preventable that’s what so sad about this whole thing, because he didn’t have to die. But like one person said he was surrounded by too many yes men and greedy, money hungry a.s.s holes.

  • jess

    everyone is forgetting that this dr. waited more than 45 mins before calling for help, then went on the phone with girlfriend while his patient is at death’s door, i can tell you one thing TEXAS would not put up with that. i am very surprised that they allowed him to practic

    Huh? You said MJ should roast in H3LL! Last time I checked our justice system can’t sentence anyone to H3ll. In MJ’s and OJ’s cases, they were found innocent in our justice system. The Lord will judge whos going to hell and who is not. If i’m sinning I’ll be roasting there and so will you if you are not right also. NONE OF US WILL ESCAPE THE FINAL JUDGEMENT. DON’T THINK YOUR SINS ARE ANY LESS THAN MICHAEL’S. That’s all im saying. I hope for justice in our court system for all crime victims and i know our justice system has flaws. People with money can get away with stuff But i don’t wish anyone to burn in h3ll cause its not for me to say someone deserves that only God can say that.
