Dr. Conrad Murray Sentenced For Michael Jackson's Death

UPDATE: The 58-year-old is sentenced in the death of Michael Jackson for involuntary manslaughter.

Following Michael Jackson’s death in 2009, Dr. Conrad Murray has been found guilty for involuntary manslaughter in connection with his passing.

According to LA Times, a jury of seven men and five women decided on the verdict over two days. Murray was charged with the lowest possible homicide offense, facing a maximum sentence of four years in a state prison and a minimum of probation.

Murray, whose medical license was suspended by California authorities, now faces the probable loss of the license. His sentencing date is set for November 29th and will be held in custody without bail.

[November 7]

UPDATE: Judge Michael Pastor denied Dr. Conrad Murray probation and sentenced him to the maximum of four years in prison for involuntary manslaughter. The judge cited "gross continuing deviation" in his decision and rebuked him for "violat[ing] the trust of the medical community, his colleagues and his patient."

    Things are not always clear cut. There is a bit of true in everything. In the bizarre world of Michael Jackson we may never know whats true and whats false with absolute certitude. The bottom line is, whether you are rich or poor, free or in jail, we all try to live another day and the situation we are in becomes our world; we adapt. Michael failed at that, surely he was like a great dinosaur, and like the dinosaurs he became extinct because he couldnt adapt. "Jackhael Mickson" had major issues, he didn't know who he was, but for most people out there it is easier to believe a simple lie rather than a complicated truth. Predictably, Dr. Murray is the fans' s "Bete Noire", and, ultimately, this Hell-fired doctor has become the scapegoat. Behold, this Doctor is not the only greedy person in the never-ending MJ saga. Greed this is the crooked timber of humanity. In the crux of this drama I would like to jump from that into another shameful exploitation of MJ. A line of perfumes dedicated to Michael is about to be launched by Joe Jackson and a professional scam-artist who is much spookier than Dr. Murray, Julian Franck Rouas. This story will make your eyes curl up in the back of your head when youll read about the psychologically malevolent Julian Rouas and the Jackson Tribute Fragrances rogue operation. With no functioning conscience, they have even used Michaels kids to promote the stinking perfumes. See the sickening photos http://jacksontributefragrances.blogspot.com

    This guy... total scapegoat. I loved MJ. I really did, but I had no illusions about the guy. He was no baby toucher, but he was as strange as he could get. And it was a well known fact that after his pepsi accident, he got hooked on legal drugs. This kept him strange. This doctor did what any other doctor would do when offered MJ type money; give him what the fuck he asks for. And he's burnin for it, why? Because aint a person alive beyond the age of 18 that dont have Billy Jean in their playlist. They really could have left this doctor alone, and the world would still continue. But nah they had to burn this dude at the stake and make an example out of him. Total crap from these hypocrits. But what do I know..

  • antsmith2450

    I was a massive MJ fan as a kid but im 30 now and I became smart enough to stop supporting him when I was about 12. I wasnt there when OJ killed his wife nor when Rodney King got beaten by the police or when MJ touched up kids that looked up to him. Im pretty sure all 3 things happened though. Not 100% but enough to let hiom go.

    • HIYAHHH

      ^^^ Actually he didn't "Win" anything, he settled the cases. In other words he paid off the victims so they can stfu...Why would an Innocent person pay off the supposed victim when they are trying to burn him??? HMMMMMMMM, because he's guilty that's why. If not then he should have fought to prove his innocence like OJ did, especially with all that money he had. If he was Innocent like u claim, then there wouldnt have been any evidence against MJ, instead he paid them off (smh) Maybe the last victim was a bluff but I doubt all 3 of them were. "Fool me once, shame on you, Fool me twice, Shame on me"

    • Anonymous

      well MJ won all his cases... 3 of the witnesses were discredited and one came forward after the fact and confessed that his money hungry parents put him up to it. But hey you're free to pass judgment based on your own prejudice despite all the facts and legal process. ignorance in bliss

  • jg

    i dont really know if this guy is guilty..everytime i see him on tv he looks clueless like he still doesnt know the accussations against him. That said, im sure there is more he could have done to preserve the health of the greatest performer of all time, no matter how much drugs MJ wanted

  • Nico 3

    Michael Jackson was a weird freak who was probably giving Murray alot of money to feed him drugs. That said, Murray still could have said no.

    I call this the OJ-Factor: to prevent riots just send this celebritydoctor to jail. If La Toya is happy, so are the "fans". Michael Jacksons life must have a "disneylike" end of the story where the villain gets his share of justice.

    Micheal Jackson killed himself, all this dude did was give him what he asked for, he should be charged with Drug Dealing not Manslaughter, but then again its hands across america for the dead pedophile so somebody had to be the fall guy

  • Loki Da God

    Michael Jackson sucks and his fans are retarded. They need to get over the fact that he DEAD, and NEVER coming back. We should be THANKING Conrad for ridding the world of the child molesting SCUM. All these "fans" frontin. Nobody wanted that baby bumper locked up but COnrad has to be? Kill yourselves.

      Am I lying tho? You bitch niggas defend this faggot, sick, child fucker. And then want this dude locked up for something he can BARELY be blamed for. If this were any regular nigga, nobody would care, but because it's "Michael Jackson", this nigga get's locked up. Fuck outta here.

      take your own advise and kill yourself

  • D

    yeah... he's not a scapegoat. nigga was givin MJ watever he wanted because he was gettin paid. no doctor in the world should have ever been givin that nigga all them drugs mixed together like that. but MJ had bills and murray has no ethics. moral of the story is... dont sell your soul for a pot of gold

    • jg

      if the doctor did what MJ was telling him to do then he is guilty dumbass. PHysicians swear an oath toprotect the life of their patients and give them proper medical advice, not give them license to do whatever they want. so however much this guy was getting paid he wasnt doing his fuckin job right

      just like you would want the same check. mj did it to himself and this doc is the scapegoat like i said CLOWN!!!!

      CLOWN ALL HE HAD TO DO WAS DENY ANY PRESCRIPTION THAT WAS ASKED FOR. HE WANTED THAT CHECK, AND THAT GREED FCUKED HIM UP. LOOK AT ALL THE DOCTOR SIBLINGS OFFERING SYMPATHY RIGHT NOW!

      the only person that sold his soul was mj. The doc did what mj was telling him to do nothing more nothing less. or maybe the doc was acting on orders from a higher authority. maybe someone wanted mj dead. either way the doc was in a lose lose situation. say no to mj and get fired or say no to the higher authority and get killed. it all adds up to one thing SCAPEGOAT!!!!!!

    SCAPEGOAT - Thats all that needs to be said about this!!!!!

  • The Mechanic

    Michael was just as responsible for his own death. He was a junkie. It was a collaborative effort and neither knew it would result in MJ's death, but it happened. MJ paid with his life, and Murray paid with his career/reputation destroyed.

    Too bad. Someone had to take the fall. now back to the jacksons fighting over the estate...

  • Malik Shabazz

    Hmm ! So whats up with AEG ? Shouldn't they be equally held Responsible for the Death of Micheal Jackson ? because of all the Pressure Imposed on him to Produce Series of Comeback concerts and also Contract Agreements he ( Micheal Jackson ) had to Comply with ? O i see , since a Black Man ( Which Happened to be Dr Murray) was also involved , AEG ( Probably A White owned Company) do not want to loose it's Ratings /Reputation so it's now playing the " Blame it on the Black Man " Game !

      What do you mean "only"? It's involuntary - he didn't mean to. Unless you're one of those illumaniti theorists. It's like hitting someone with your car when you're driving cause they decide to run across the street.
