Michael Jackson Doctor Ready to Surrender

2/3/2010 8:02 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray -- the doctor who administered the fatal dose of Propofol to Michael Jackson -- has made plans with the L.A. County District Attorney's Office to surrender on charges of involuntary manslaughter ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

We've learned the D.A. has been in touch with Dr. Murray's lawyers. The plan -- the D.A. will file charges and then immediately notify Murray's lawyers. The lawyers will then bring Dr. Murray to the downtown L.A. courthouse and surrender to a judge. By surrendering, Dr. Murray would not be arrested and handcuffed.

We're told the D.A. has already drafted the criminal complaint and it could be filed as early as today. If convicted of involuntary manslaughter Dr. Murray faces a maximum of 4 years in prison.

A lawyer claiming to rep the Jackson family says they are upset with a 4 year maximum sentence, calling it "just a slap on the wrist."

Dr. Murray has too many court cases on his plate. We've learned he was due in Las Vegas court this morning. Murray is being sued by medical imaging company for non-payment of fees. Problem is .. Dr. Murray is in L.A. waiting to surrender. So the Las Vegas judge just issued a default judgment against Dr. Murray.

Isn't this just another frivolous lawsuit against a doctor? No wonder our doctors' malpractice premiums are going up! Hole up your posters, boys and girls, and keep shouting, "Tort Reform" "Tort Reform". "Tort Reform".

Now, don't you feel better that you've helped to solve the health insurance problem?

killing jackson was the best move ever. That kiddy rapist should have died a long time ago. And it helped the economy by everyone spending money on his worthless kiddy rapist crap. The doctor deserves a medal not jail

to tonya with the #31 comment:

you go girl! you are so right! i work in the healthcare field and propofol (brand name is diprivan) is to be administered under the supervision of an anesthesiologist or certified registered nurse anesthetist in a surgery setting. i'm so tired of people saying that michael jackson had "taken" the drug. you can't ingest propofol! the dr. should be convicted because 1) he was NOT licensed to give this drug and 2) he was way out of his field of practice. before others start judging and commenting, they should do a little research on the drug, its effects, and who's licensed to give it. good post!

please!! This is just a slap on the wrist for this Dr. Murray, there trying to make it look like this is the maximum sentence he could get. He should have got at least 10 years for his crime.As a doctor he should have been more careful and not just looking at the substantial $$$$ he would make.

MJ asked a doc to give him unlimited anount of painkillers and some doctor gave the medicine to him. Now he is being charged for murder. No doctor would prescribe any medicines for fear that they would get into trouble with the law. But if MJ was not a black Dioctor but Movie Industry and did some tghing wrong would Government file any charges against it. Movie Industry goes after people who download music from Internet because it has money. I do not have money to go against Movie Industry. Not against whole Indstr t against the Producers of the Movie Avtatar. That is an abuse of the Hindu Word Avatar. Hindus use Avatar to describe a person who died in one incarnation but his soul was born in an ensuing incarnation with a brand New body. This is not who Avatar is in the Movie. In the movie Avatar is simply a person who assumes the disguise of an Alien or an Alien who assumes the disguise of a person on the earth. Hindus would say that the alien has changed his Bhainse (disguise). In othyer world he has thje Bhainse of a different person. I wish some Attorney with a grudge against the Movie Industry would file a suit against the producers of Avatar to seek an injunction against the producers of Avatar from showing the Movie on the Screens anywhere in the world. Time is of Essense. The Oscar awards are round the corner. I'd want the injunction to be in place before the Oscar Awards (March 7). The attorney would achive an unparallelled notoriety. But obviously the lawyer should have legal knowhow to successfully execute a case of this type against the producers of Avatar.

When will people wake up and figure out that Doctors are some of the worst drug dealers in the country. However, it isn't the Doctor's fault, it is the fault of members of our government who get paid off by the AMA. If society doesn't like it, then society can change the laws. In the case of Michael Jackson, the Doctor did him a favor. At the time of his death, Jackson was a has been who virtually no one paid any attention to. Jackson's body of work is pathetically simplistic, and about the only thing that could resurrect his fame was an early death. Death is sometimes the best promotion, which was also true for a lot of other unworthy celebrated, such as Hemmingway, who could hardly write his way out of a wet paper bag.
