Michael Jackson - Trial Of Michael Jacksons Doctor Due To Start


CONRAD MURRAY, the former doctor of Michael Jackson is due in court today (06.09.2011) for a pre-trial hearing.

The Los Angeles Superior Court will begin selecting members of the jury this week ahead of the official trial start date on September 27th 2011. Murray will stand trial for manslaughter following Jackson's death from sedatives in June 2009. Fans are expected to gather outside the courthouse. Speaking to AFP, Wesley Noorhoff, president of the Legendary Michael Jackson Fan Association, said "Many fans are expecting that a conviction will bring closure. But I doubt it will. If Murray is convicted there will be disappointment about the maximum sentence of only four years. I can't even begin to imagine what will happen if he is not convicted." The pop superstar was due to stage a series of comeback performances in the O2 arena in London designed to revive his finances but suddenly died before the shows could begin.

Michael Jackson was born in Gary, Indiana and began his showbiz career at a very early age as a member of the Jackson 5 alongside his brothers. He released his first album in 1972, entitled Got To Be There before reaching superstardom with such albums as Off The Wall in 1979 and Thriller in 1982. His is also one of the few artists to be inducted into the Rock and Roll fame of fame twice and also won a host of awards including 13 GRAMMY awards and 26 American Music Awards.
