    Re: Michael Jackson has died

    Sounds like the Los Angeles D.A. is having a lot of trouble putting together a case against Jackson's doctor.



    Source: Jackson Doc Won't Face Murder Charges

    Prosecutors have decided they won’t pursue second-degree murder charges against Conrad Murray for Michael Jackson's death, reports Gerald Posner, and will instead seek a manslaughter indictment.

    The Los Angeles District Attorney’s team probing the death of Michael Jackson has decided not to pursue murder charges against the singer’s doctor when it presents its case to a grand jury early next year, a source familiar with the investigation tells The Daily Beast.

    Instead, the source says, the DA will likely ask for a manslaughter indictment against Conrad Murray, Jackson’s in-house physician when he died. In cases like this in California, it is ultimately up to the grand jury to decide what the final charges are, but in the large majority of cases, they defer to the prosecutor’s request.

    While the DA officially has no on-the-record comment regarding the ongoing investigation, this source adds that what had seemed like a straightforward case has proven more difficult than many in the prosecutor’s office initially envisioned. Charges are now expected, he says, in February “at the earliest” and “possibly even a few months more.” One informal deadline is to try and have the criminal case officially under way—a preliminary hearing on the charges—before the first anniversary of Jackson’s death in June.

    In the immediate aftermath of Jackson’s June death, the coroner ruled a homicide from “acute propofol intoxication. According to leaked affidavits, Murray reportedly admitted to police that he administered propofol, a powerful anesthesia, to Jackson only hours before the pop star’s death. But the medical data under review is so complex, and the toxicology report involves a wide enough mixture of drugs, that the district attorney has had to bring in outside medical experts for what is becoming one of the office’s more expensive probes. The long delay is despite the execution of broad search warrants at Murray’s home and offices in Las Vegas, and storage facilities in Houston.

    In trying to make its case to the investigatory grand jury currently impaneled, the district attorney has already subpoenaed Murray’s girlfriend, Nicole Alvarez, the mother of his youngest child, to testify about whether she knew he was ordering propofol.

    The Los Angeles District Attorney's Office is accustomed to expensive and lengthy probes when it comes deaths of celebrities. In the 2007 drug overdose death of Anna Nicole Smith, it took over two years before the same office returned conspiracy to furnish drugs charges against her attorney-boyfriend and two doctors. It took the DA a year before it got a murder indictment against music producer Phil Spector in the murder of actress Lana Clarkson. “In high-profile cases,” says the source familiar with the investigation, “everyone would rather proceed very slowly and make certain that any charges brought are solid.”

    For his part, Murray has kept a low profile. In November, he appeared in a Las Vegas court to answer charges that he was behind on child support for another child, but settled the case with the mother just before the proceedings were to begin. At Thanksgiving, he reopened his medical clinic in Houston, where he tends mostly to people who otherwise could not afford medical care. At the two churches at which he’s a regular, Murray was greeted with effusive and emotional support from parishioners and patients who had known him for years.

    The Houston reopening and reception has gone so well that one person on Murray’s defense team tells me that he might reopen his Las Vegas medical practice early in the new year. Murray, who had been without any income since Jackson’s death—and still hasn’t been paid by concert promoter AEG for his medical services to the pop star—needs the money to pay bills, and also help cover what is expected to be a very expensive defense. When asked for comment about the apparent decision not to pursue murder charges, Miranda Sevcik, whose Media Masters handles press inquires for Murray, said, “I can reiterate what we have said all along: ‘Dr. Murray neither prescribed or administered anything that should have killed Michael Jackson.’”

    Re: Michael Jackson has died

    This case might just fizzle down into nothing. Especially if they say....Murray didn't administer a "killing" dose, but it was complications from the other medications (that he denies administering, or prescribing or giving Michael) that caused the propofol to cause Michael's death.

    And here I was thinkin' it was going to be bigger than OJ Simpson's mess!

    Conrad Murray -- Friday's the Day
    Posted Feb 4th 2010 7:11AM by TMZ Staff

    Dr. Conrad Murray will be arraigned Friday and charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson -- law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

    We're told Dr. Murray will turn himself in to the LAPD Friday morning. He will be booked and then taken to Airport Court in L.A., Division 144, where he will face a judge at 1:30 PM.

    A pool video camera and a still camera will record the event.

    Re: Michael Jackson has died

    Talk about speedy trials. Conrad has been ordered to return to court on the4th or 5th of April to set another date This could go on forever until there really is no case.

    Jackson doctor out on bail, back for April hearingThe Associated Press, February 9, 2010
    LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Michael Jackson's doctor returns to court in April to find out the date for the next major step in the case — a proceeding that will reveal for the first time the evidence the prosecution believes will show his "gross negligence" was the direct cause of the pop star's death.

    Dr. Conrad Murray pleaded not guilty Monday to a charge of involuntary manslaughter and a judge released him on $75,000 bail.

    Superior Court Judge Keith Schwartz ordered Murray to turn in his passport and said he could travel within the U.S., but not to any foreign country. The prosecutor had suggested he might flee to his native Grenada or to Trinidad where he has a child.

    Murray was ordered to return April 5 to have another date set for his preliminary hearing. That proceeding, a virtual mini-trial, will disclose the evidence prosecutors maintain will demonstrate Murray's "gross negligence."

    Really sad case, and I think a tougher call then the jury will be given credit for. I think the case proved that Murray was professionally incompetant. But I also believe that Jackson was in many ways responsible for jeopardizing his own life.

    I really wonder how his kids will turn out 20 years from now.

    We were discussing this last night and I think if it hadn't been Dr. Murray it would have been someone else.

    Although I think the charges and the verdict against Dr. Murray are correct, I think Michael Jackson carries the brunt of responsibility for his own death. It seems to me that he started killing himself many years ago.

    It is a sad case indeed.

    I really have a problem with the crowd outside the courtroom (and apparently one person inside the court room) cheering as the verdict was read.

    Re: Michael Jackson has died

    Money corrupted Murray, now he's going to jail and will be known as the guy who killed Michael Jackson. He's probably bankrupt financially also.
