Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson's Doctor Conrad Murray Faces Sentencing

Dr Conrad Murray, the doctor at the centre of the court case surrounding the death of pop star Michael Jackson, faces sentencing today (November 29th 2011) after being found guilty on a count of involuntary manslaughter. One of the most publicised trials of recent times took six weeks to resolve.
The Bbc reports that prosecutors have asked for Murray to be sentenced to four years in jail, the maximum allowed in such a case; his own lawyers meanwhile have requested that he be allowed to remain on probation, citing his own "lifetime sentence of self-punishment". What could really twist the knife into the doctor however would be if he came to lose his license to practise medicine, while prosecutors also want him to pay restitution to Jackson's surviving children Prince Michael, Paris and Blanket.
Relief for Murray may come however in the recent rule changes to overcrowding in California county jails, where he will potentially be doing his time. Indeed such is the situation regarding overcrowding at the moment, it's possible that the doctor will spend barely any of his sentence behind bars - we've already seen Lindsay Lohan freed just four hours into a supposed 30 day sentence, and though this is obviously a far more serious case, the potential for Murray to walk free remains.

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 what’s true and what’s 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 couldn’t adapt. Dr. Murray 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 you’ll read about the psychologi­cally malevolent Julian Rouas and the Jackson Tribute Fragrances rogue operation. With no functionin­g conscience­, they have even used Michael’s kids to promote the stinking perfumes… Google up: " The Jackson Tribute Fragrances"

I think I've just read 2 same comments on this article!Anyway, I'm glad this whole sorry state of affairs is over but nothing is ever really 'over', is it? Wont be long before something else crawls outta the woodwork. Best we leave things be for now and for Michaels family to be allowed respite and peace. Justice has been done, end of.
