Criminal Complaint in Michael Jackson Death

2/3/2010 5:01 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

dr. conrad murray in courtSources tell TMZ the L.A. County District Attorney's Office has a criminal complaint drafted and ready to file against Dr. Conrad Murray in the death of Michael Jackson.

We're told it's now just a matter of timing before Dr. Murray is charged with involuntary manslaughter -- a felony that carries a maximum 4-year prison sentence.

As we first reported, Dr. Murray plans on surrendering today, so all signs point to the D.A. filing criminal charges as early as this morning.

Dr. Murray is in Los Angeles and his legal team is already mapping out strategy.

136. I agree. What happened when he came home from rehearsing? WHY of all nights the good Dr. leaves him for 45minutes? Something else evil happened in MJ's home that night. I truly believe Tohme Tohme paid the good Dr. to Murder MJ because he fired him and he had no more control over MJ's finances. Posted at 11:43AM on Feb 3rd 2010 by Dahillzig

Dr Murray is an incompetent idiot who should never be allowed to practice medicine again. But I do not believe he killed MJ. There’s no motive, he had everything to lose and nothing to gain by killing him. Murray was the patsy, the fall guy and he was played. I do agree with you that something else evil happened in MJ’s house that night. I truly believe that “someone” else went into the bedroom and increased the propanol dosage. And whoever that “someone” was had access to remove/splice the security tape. Murray had no way to access the tape.

Also what ever happened with the woman’s blood stained blouse that was found in MJ bedroom? I haven’t heard anything more about it. Was it ever tested? Was it Michael’s blood or someone else?

I’m also curious about the unexplained bruises found on MJ’s knees and the cut on his back. If it was really caused by an accidental fall, someone in that house would have known about it and said so. Is that possibly the blood source on the blouse? Or was the blouse intentionally left by “someone” to throw off the police.

Enough waiting...charge him already!!! Where is the justice in this world???

Arrest Murray, haul his a$$ down to jail, and inject him with Porpofol...because apparently that isn't illegal!

You can take away the most loved man on the earth...but, you cannot take away our love for him. Miss you so much Michael.

A slap on the wrist. Thats all? And that is supposed to be justice? You can actually spend more time in jail for selling or being caught with drugs, which is premeditated murder the way i look at it, than you can for giving an overdose of a lethal drug to anybody and taking another human life. Did this man not know the backlash from giving drugs illegally and actually taking another humans life? He should be given time for murder, distributing drugs, and abusing the code of ethics and abusing his right to be licensed to practice medicine.

Involuntary? hmmmmmmmmmm..... Involuntary administered a heart stopping drug, without medical equipment necessary to re-start the heart, involuntarily failed to call 911 for over two hours after a patient is suffering cardiac arrest...hmmm...involuntarily administer a drug designated to be used in a hospital...involuntarily failed to remove a cardiac arrest payment off a bed onto a floor....hmmm involuntarily spent no less than an hour on the phone before calling 911...involuntarily allowed the man to die? Someone please tell me if this makes any sense... Nevermind.. a First Grade Child could figure out this mess..

Involuntarily engaged in actions against a man that caused his death.

The word CAUSED is relevant, or did I write this INVOLUNTARILY?

PLEASSSSSSSSSSSSE

Involuntarily gained a patient's "TRUST" then told the patient a potentially heart stopping drug treatment was "safe." Involuntarily did not have medical equipment necessary to treat a patient at risk of going into cardiac arrest. Hmmmmmm Well I guess MICHAEL DIED INVOLUNTARILY HUH?

If it is true that Michael lived to get high, ( which I HIGHLY doubt) He certainly didn't live to DIE by a DOCTOR WHO VOWED TO DO NO HARM OR BY ANYONE ELSE WHO WANTED HIM DEAD.

What do you think would happen if this doctor had did the same thing he did to Michael, to other famous entertainers? actors, actresses?
Why don't you try to name a few and my point is made.

In my opinion there is just plain wrong about this man being charged with the lesser of all charges after killing a man in the way he killed Michael Jackson. I'm done with this mess. GOD will hold all involved in killing Michael, under conviction. Good luck folks because I wouldn't want to be in your shoes.

IN MY OPINION AND THE OPINION OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE, LAPD IS NOT AND WILL NEVER BE A MICHAEL JACKSON FAN. SO WHY IS EVERYONE SURPRISED THEIR FILING THE LESSER AND SMALLER OF ALL CHARGES AGAINST THE MAN WHO KILLED MICHAEL JACKSON? MICHAELS FAMILY IS ABOUT TO SUFFER ANOTHER BLOW WHEN THIS SMALL CHARGE IS READ AGAINST THIS SMALL MAN. THEY KNOW THE TRUTH. MEDIA IS A POWERFUL TOOL.

Some of you really need to do your research on what you are saying before you say it. I have read several credible books AND The whole child molester stuff is absurd. Did anyone ever hear of extortion?? Extortion is opportunistic people looking for ways to make millions off of mega stars...Also,generally speaking, if someone likes children they like more than 2 - why hasn't more come out of the closet by now?? Heaven knows MJ was a friend to thousands of kids, both boys and girls. MJ was one of the kindest, God loving people ever- These accuastions you are making of him being a child rapist are what ultimately lead to his fall- he couldn't take it anymore- in the fuutre don't talk so idiotic until you have really investigated the facts...he was found NOT GUILTY -

The father of one of the kids MJ alledgedly molested recently committed suicide- sounds like a whole lot of guilt there for the dad.,..RIP MJ - WE true fans know you would never hurt a child. We miss you so much...

The pain of having lost Michael is endless, seven months have passed and it goes on and on and on, day after day. And what makes the pain even worse is that the man who killed Michael is still free, “negotiating with Justice”, while all the villains who plotted this murder to profit from it are now making huge amounts of money off of Michael’s works. I wonder: Where is Justice?

1) Why did Murray put Michael to sleep in the morning if Michael had to attend the rehearsals at that time?
2) Why did Murray administer Michael propofol if that drug is only used for surgery procedures and not as a sedative and only in a medical setting and under strict monitoring by specialists?
3) Why, on top of this, did he simultaneously administered Michael other sedatives?
4) Why after administering Michael propofol he left him alone in the room to talk on the phone?
5) Why did he delay so long calling 911?
6) Why didn’t he notify Michael’s family at once?
7) Why didn’t he go with Michael in the ambulance to UCLA?
8) Why did Murray, who is “supposed to be a cardiologist”, do CPR to Michael on the bed instead of on the floor?

The only answer possible to these questions is that, Murray being a DOCTOR and so KNOWING perfectly well that all he was doing to Michael was inexorably leading to MICHAEL’S DEATH, he PREMEDITATELY murdered Michael.
