Michael Jackson - Jackson Family Withdraws Request For Restitution From Murray

Prosecutors in the manslaughter case against Michael Jackson's doctor Conrad Murray have withdrawn their petition demanding $100 million (£62 million) in restitution for the late superstar's family.
Last November (11), Murray was found guilty of administering the fatal dose of anaesthetic propofol which cost the Thriller hitmaker his life and he was sentenced to four years behind bars on an involuntary manslaughter charge.
Judge Michael Pastor was this week (begs16Jan12) due to consider how much money Murray should hand over to Jackson's family, with estate administrators estimating the singer would have earned at least $100 million if he had lived and performed his This Is It concerts in London.
However, the request for restitution was officially withdrawn on Wednesday (18Jan12) during a brief court hearing in Los Angeles.
Los Angeles District Attorney's Office spokeswoman Jane Robison says, "We informed Judge Pastor that the Jackson family is not seeking restitution and asked that the matter be taken off the calendar."

How sad, Conrad Murray gets off once again with a slap on the hand. IF he was ordered to pay the restitution and could not do so that would have added time to his sentence, how much time who knows but, at least he would have not been out on the street where he could move to another state, obtain another medical license and harm another human being. And yes, this will happen unless the medical board revokes any and all chances of him ever getting another license to practice medicine any place in the United States. I love the Jackson's but, I would have thought long and hard on the consequenses of dropping this case. I think this was a BAD move on their part.

Michael Jackson is somewhere out there, this is why this man is getting a slap on the wrist...there is in my mind something fishy about this whole thing. Michael if your out there...send a sign to all of those who have anguished over this for over 2 years. Oh and btw, I hate you Murray, good, bad or indifferent...if you killed him you should die the same way, drug overdosed and rendered helpless.

why is it that Murray gets off again what is really going on here as fans of Michael Jackson why don't the Jacksons family say anything to their son's fans they should explain what going on why did they change their minds Murray should be made to pay and do his 4 years and never get his medical license back;he might harm another human being no one really knows for sure and the medical board should be careful about it make sure it don't happen again to another family.

If Dr. Murray does not have any money to pay the Jacksons, you can't take blood from a stone, but if he ever makes any money off of anything Michael Jackson, then that money should go to the Jackson family.

If Michael Jackson is alive, this sounds like something he would do, forgive Dr. Conrad Murray. That's just the man he is/was.
