Guilty in Conrad Murray Trial

No big surprise here.

Is it just me, or is Dr. Murray beginning to look a lot like Herman Cain? Faces of the guilty… Indeed.

Doctor Found Guilty in Michael Jackson’s Death

 Michael Jackson, among the most famous and beloved performers in pop music history, spent his final days in a sleep-deprived haze of medication and misery until finally succumbing to a fatal dose of potent drugs given to him by the private physician he had hired to act as his personal pharmaceutical dispensary, a jury decided on Monday.

The physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter nearly two and a half years after the star’s shocking death at age 50. The verdict came after nearly 50 witnesses, 22 days of testimony and less than two days of deliberation by a jury of seven men and five women. The trial had focused primarily on whether Dr. Murray was guilty of abdicating his duty or of acting with reckless criminal negligence, directly causing his patient’s death.

Dr. Murray now faces up to four years in prison and the loss of his medical license. Judge Michael Pastor denied a defense request for bail for Dr. Murray and ordered him handcuffed and taken into immediate custody in the courtroom…

Michael Jackson’s Lawyer to Stand Trial – Loses License.

Apparently the Judge in LA had hear enough…

Michael Jackson’s doctor ordered to stand trial in pop star’s death, stripped of medical license

A judge stripped Dr. Conrad Murray of his medical license Tuesday after ruling that prosecutors have sufficient evidence to try him for manslaughter in the death of pop star Michael Jackson.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor said testimony presented during a six-day hearing into Murray’s treatment of the singer had convinced him that allowing the cardiologist to keep his license “would constitute an imminent danger to public safety.”

Evidence presented by prosecutors, the judge said, showed “a direct nexus in connection between the acts and omissions of Dr. Murray and the homicide in this case,” the judge said.

Pastor’s decision to send the case to trial was widely expected, including by Murray’s attorneys, but his defense had strongly contested the loss of his license, calling it a “nuclear option” that would destroy the 57-year-old doctor’s ability support his family and mount a criminal defense.

Murray is scheduled to be arraigned Jan. 25.

Michael Jackson Doctor, Conrad Murray – Manslaughter Charges?

Michael Jackson death investigation may be coming to a conclusion

There were growing signs Wednesday morning that the half-year investigation into the death of Michael Jackson could be coming to a conclusion.

L.A. prosecutors continue to decline comment on when — or if — they will charge Jackson’s personal physician in connection with the pop star’s death. But law enforcement sources have told The Times it’s possible a decision will come sometime this week.

A lawyer for the Houston-based doctor, Conrad Murray, said Tuesday that his client is in Los Angeles and prepared to surrender if authorities file charges against him.

“I don’t have any specific information that leads me to believe he is going to be charged this week,” lawyer Ed Chernoff said, “but if he is, we’ve made it clear he’s available to turn himself in.”

The arrival of Murray and Chernoff, his lead attorney, from Houston set off a new round of speculation that authorities, who have been mulling a manslaughter case against the doctor since last summer, were about to file charges.

A spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office declined to say whether prosecutors planned to file a case against Murray. “All I can tell you is that we have not filed anything. When and if we do, we will let everyone know at one time,” spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons said.

The Zoo goes on…
