Michael Jackson - Katherine Jackson Blasts Verdict

Michael Jackson's mother claims Dr. Conrad Murray's four-year prison sentence for the involuntary manslaughter of her son is "not enough".

Katherine Jackson was in court in Los Angeles today (29.11.11) to hear Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor order Conrad to serve the maximum time in prison for aiding in the death of Michael - who died from acute Propoful intoxication in 2009 - and although Katherine admitted the judge was fair, she wishes the medic would serve more jail time.

Calling the sentence "not enough", Katherine added to KTLA: "Four years won't bring my son back."

Following the guilty verdict of Dr. Murray earlier this month, Katherine and Michael's father Joe Jackson said in a statement: ""We have been waiting for this moment for a very long time and we couldn't hold back tears of joy in the courtroom. Even though nothing can bring back our son, justice has finally been served. We can't wait to go home and share this day with Michael's children."

Katherine currently has custody of Michael's children Prince14, Paris, 13, and 'Blanket', nine.

Can you make your headlines any more deceptive, ContactMusic? Katherine does anything but blast the verdict. Did you even read the statement you attribute to Joe Jackson, "Even though nothing can bring back our son, justice has finally been served. We can't wait to go home and share this day with Michael's children." Katherine blasts no one according to what you have printed here; and she is absolutely right. Whether it is 4 years or 40 years, that family can never have their beloved, Michael, back.

So all the talk over the past 18 or so months about how the maximum sentence is 4 years, what part of that did she not understand? I know she's an old biddy but the Jacksons do seem to have their own brand of stupidity. Jermain is saying the same thing so it's making me wonder if they understand the language.

Well said pj620. Full of crap. Katherine is a very humble lady and I have just finished hearing what she spoke outside the court room and not once did she blast the verdict.

4 years for the manslaughter of that freak called Michael Jackson. Proves that the crime was not that big a deal then. The man should be thanked for it.

Katherine was not seeking revenge, nor did she blast anyone. She is a mother grieving and will always grieve for her son. God bless, Walgren, Pastor, Brazil and all those involved with putting this reckless, drug dealing, arrogant excuse for a "doctor" behind bars. I just wish it were 44 instead of 4 but we got a guilty verdit and we got Murray behind bars. That alone is a victory.

Michael would still be here if he didn't fill himself with crap and pay someone to give him propofol. It was only a matter of time and the family now have a scapegoat so they don't have to face the music. Jackson was a druggie, He went into rehab twice in his life. What for? Certainly not an addiction to cornflakes. Michael doctor shopped and found his quack. End of.
