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.

Mahafaki, please get some psychoanalysis and help. You are a very confused human being badly in need of mental help. Accept this advice before you go over the edge. I wish you a successful recovery from your mental problems.

The Jackson family needs to get over their need to be in the MJ limelight. MJ made what he made of himself long after the Jackson 5. He was the one receiving the Lifetime achievement for his body of work as Michael Jackson The King of Pop. It was great for his children to accept that award and very appropriate. If it was an after thought as the Jackson's claim, perhaps it was due to worry of exploitation. They are still grieving and very young. As far as Conrad Murray, he too, should be held accountable for his negligence and obvious quackery as a physician. But Mj too was responsible for his own demise. Many say oh he was such a great Dad and I am sure he was a loving one, but we take children out of drug abused homes daily because a parent who is addicted cannot give a 100% to parenthood. this is vital and very overlooked in the case of MJ. The kids are healing and hopefully their future will be bright and stable. But after all, the Jackson Mom is 70 something and there may be yet another major change in store at some point for these kids.

I do not feel this doctor did anything wrong. MJ was an addict and was perfectly willing to take dangerous drugs regardless. People need to see this man for what he truly was. He was a VERY sick, troubled man who at one time was talented but that was a long, long time ago. He raped kids and ended up a soul less addict at his own doing. STOP trying to make it seem like ne was some sort of God already!

I understand this Doctor should have known not to give MJ all this medication but the family acts like it wasn't MJ's fault at all. MJ was a drug user and they need to face the fact that it was because of the life he CHOSE to lead that ended his life. There is no difference between MJ and the drug user on the corner street.

Yeah its true. Many people killed MJ including himself. And the mother of those children needs to get those children and love them for themselves not like that family who is getting his money. That money should be for them and it does not cost 60,000 a month to take care of 3 children. What are they feeding them? Gold. Come on people? How many of us live on 60,000 a month? MJ mother has no right to ask for increase to feed all that family and the lawyers for those kids should know how much these kids need. Let the rest of the Jackson family get their own money to live on. Those kids should start complaining about where this money is going and tell Debbie Rowe to get off her butt and take these kids and raise them properly without all the hoopla of the Jackson family. What kind of mother is she?

I'm a huge MJ fan but that Doctor should NOT be doing any time in prison! MJ destoyed his own life and should not be allowed to ruin another life.

daiwofei3, You are a lousy woman. That is why you got dumped by your boy friend. Now you are getting some useless dating service to plug their name. You are spamming. I hope all the men see you for who you are and stay away from you. You are not girl friend material. And I believe you are a fake creation of some desperate dating service that has no clients to match.
