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.

This history is only more ink for the media...

Murray will never receive 4 years in prison. In fact, I doubt he'll get jail time at all. I hope he does, but I doubt it. He'll probably end up doing 1000 hours of community service or somesuch. That's my guess. And if that happens, I say what a shame. A man died about 35 years before he should have, and Dr. Murray's utter stupidity had a large part to do with it. He should be punished with more than just a slap on the wrist.

I'll hope for the best, but truthfully I don't expect much to come of this. I do hope the Jackson family files a wrongful death suit against Murray. Even if they can't get any money out of him, at least they might have the satisfaction of hearing a judge declare that Murray was indeed largely responsible for a death that should not have happened.

The most relevant question being asked is WHO IS PAYING FOR
CONRAD MURRAY.
Does anyone know a good investigative journalist who could do some digging into that?
I'm going to message Aphrodite Jones to see if she can help.
If you guys can get in touch with anyone else, please do it.

What only 4 years, common that is like a big slap in the face of Michael's Family and Friends and most of all his Fans, this doc took away a man whose message was LOVE to all man kind. I'am So Happy I have the This Is It DVD a last peice of Michael to Cherish and love forever. To The Jackson Family I Love You and to Michael's Children I Love You.

Michael I will Love You forever! and You Are Not Alone in this battle.

May you live in the lives of Millions you touched with your music and your sweet beautiful spirit. I Love You.

this is about time, but so little time for justice to be served.

I can't believe some of you blame Michael Jackson for his own death.
At the end of the day, whether Michael Jackson requested or demanded the use of Propofol, the Dr was negligent in the way he used it. He did not ensure the correct equipment was present. He did not ensure the recommended staff were present. Hell, he didn't even bother to stick around to make sure Jackson was ok while he was asleep. After the event, Murray then didn't handle himself properly. He delayed calling the ambulance. He didn't perorm CPR correctly. He went missing for hours. Whichever way you look at it Murray's behaviour was criminal and he deserves to pay dearly. 4 years is not justice, but at least it's something.

At most, Dr. M should lose his license, nothing else. Michael Jackson put his addiction ahead of his family, his friends, and his fans. People are forgetting that Dr. M warned MJ about the possible repercussions of giving him the propofol and didn't want to give it to him. When you have some superstar God-creature whining and pleading for it and telling Dr. M that's what he's being paid for and damn the consequences, that's on MJ. MJ didn't care about us or anyone else evidenced by the fact that he metaphorically slapped his family down when they tried their interventions with MJ. Also common knowledge that anyone who said "no" to the Great One were quickly dismissed from his social circle. Who's to blame? He's in Holly Terrace.

HOPE THE DA AND THE JURY FIND HIM GUILTY SO MICHAEL'S CHILDREN AND FAMILY CAN KNOW THAT THE SYSTEM DIDN'T LET THEM DOWN BECAUSE THEY BELIEVE IN THE SYSTEM AND IT WILL HELP OTHERS TO BELIEVE IN THE SYSTEM AGAIN. HOPE AND PRAY GOD WILL LET MICHAEL HAVE THE JUSTICE HE FINALLY DESERVES BECAUSE MICHAEL DIDN'T DESERVE TO DIE ESPECIALLY BECAUSE OF SOMEBODY ELSES STUPIDITY OR IGNORANCE OR BECAUSE SOMEBODY DIDN'T LIKE HIM. PRAY IF ANYBODY ELSE IS INVOLVED THAT GOD WILL SHOW THE DA AND THE LAPD NOW AND THEY WILL ARREST THEM AS WELL. IF NOT THEN MAY THIS SO CALLED DOCTOR BE FOUND QUILTY AND PUT IN PRISON MORE THAN 4 YEARS AND HIS LICENSE TAKEN AWAY FOREVER. THIS DOCTOR DON'T DESERVE TO BE FREE AT ALL. GOD PLEASE SHOW THEM NOW THAT YOU ARE GOING TO LET JUSTICE BE SERVED FOR MICHAEL. PRAY GOD DON'T LET MURRAY GET OFF LIKE O.J SIMPSON DID. O.J. SHOULD HAVE BEEN FOUND QUILTY AND PUT TO DEATH. HOPE AND PRAY MURRAY IS CONVICTED AND IS NOT LUCKY LIKE O.J. WAS. HOPE AND PRAY THAT GOD WILL MAKE SURE THE RIGHT JURY IS PICKED AND NOT ONE WHO IS BIAS AGAINST MICHAEL JACKSON, IF THEY ARE THEN THEY NEED TO BE DISMISS RIGHT THEN. THIS IS NOT MANSLAUGHTER THIS IS MURDER TO ME BECAUSE MURRAY KNEW WHAT HE DID AND WHAT HE GAVE TO MICHAEL AND THE DA SHOULD CHARGE HIM WITH MURDER NOT MANSLAUGHTER. WHAT IS WRONG WITH OUR LAWS THIS INDIVIDUAL TOOK A HUMAN LIFE AND THIS IS KILLING ANOTHER HUMAN BEING IT MIGHT NOT BE BY A GUN, KNIFE ETC., BUT DRUGS IS A LETHAL WEAPON AND IT KILLS TOO. MURRAY NEEDS TO BE AN EXAMPLE TO DOCTORS THAT THEY CANNOT KEEP GIVING THEIR PATIENTS PRESCRIPTION DRUGS NO MATTER WHO THEY ARE. ALL DOCTORS WANT IS TO MAKE MONEY OFF THESE VULNERABLE INDIVIDUALS. THIS NEEDS TO STOP NOW. LOOK AT ALL THE ONES WHO HAVE DIED BEFORE MICHAEL AND WHO HAVE DIED AFTER MICHAEL THIS NEEDS TO STOP AND THIS DOCTOR AND OTHER DOCTORS NEED TO BE CHARGED IF THEIR PATIENT DIES IN THEIR CARE PERIOD AND IT NEEDS TO BE MURDER NOT MANSLAUGHTER. WITH MANSLAUGHTER THEY ARE GETTING OFF EASY JUST LIKE MURRAY. THIS IS NOT FUNNY ANYMORE INNONENCE PEOPLE ARE DYING BECAUSE OF IDIOT DOCTORS WHO PRESCRIBE PRESCRIPTION DRUGS SO THEY CAN HAVE A NICE HOME, DRIVE NICE CARS, AND MAKE THEMSELVES A NAME. HOPE GOD GETS EVERY DOCTOR WHO DOES THIS TO THEIR PATIENTS. MAY GOD NOT HAVE MERCY ON DOCTOR MURRAY OR OTHER DOCTORS THEY DON'T DESERVE IT AT ALL. THIS DOCTOR MURRAY DIDN'T HAVE MERCY ON MICHAEL WHEN HE LEFT MICHAEL ALONE TO USE THE PHONE OR GO TO THE BATHROOM LIKE HE SAID. IN MY OPINION I BELIEVE SOMEBODY HAD THIS DONE TO MICHAEL. PRAY THAT GOD WILL MAKE SURE THAT MURRAY IS FOUND QUILTY AND PRAY GOD WILL HELP THE JURY NOT TO BELIEVE MURRAY'S ATTORNEY OR ANYONE WHO TESTIFIES FOR MURRAY. ANYONE WHO TESTIFIES AGAINST MICHAEL I PRAY IT BACK FIRES IN THEIR FACE AND HOPE THE DA AND JURY WILL SEE RIGHT THROUGH THEM. MAY GOD WILL HELP THE JURY FIND MURRAY QUILTY AND NOT LET HIM GO FREE LIKE O.J. DID. yOU KNOW WHAT'S SO FUNNY IS THERE SEEMS TO BE NO REMORSE FROM MURRAY FOR WHAT HE DID TO MICHAEL AND TO ME THAT IS AN INDIVIDUAL WHO IS QUILTY AND WHO KNEW WHAT HE WAS DOING. USUALLY INDIVIDUALS WITHOUT A CONSCIENCE WILL NOT SHOW REMORSE OR SYMPATHY FOR THE ONE WHO DIED ONLY FOR THEMSELVES. MAY THIS BE THE TIME FOR TRUE JUSTICE FOR AN INNOCENT HUMAN BEING NAME MICHAEL JACKSON AND MAY GOD GRANT IT IN THE NAME OF JESUS. PRAY FANS LIKE YOU HAVE NEVER PRAYED BEFORE AND STAND ON THE FAITH THAT GOD WILL SEE JUSTICE DONE FOR MICHAEL JACKSON AND HIS CHILDREN.

I am and always be a Michael Jackson fan first and far most.I don't feel the doctor should be charge in his death. MJ was a grown man who was spoiled because he was a POP ICON. The doctor should LOSE his medical license but not his freedom. I question all of you we are trying the BLAME the doctor but what about HIS family members & loved one NO ONE of them tried to stop MJ as long as HE was HAPPY . A lost of a loved one is tragedy but let's not compound it. He's (doctor) not the only one here to blame. mj will be missed!!!!!

barbie, you are wrong. go back and read all the stories and you will realise Murray was not honest concerning the drugs he gave MJ. he ommitted some of the drugs he gave when paramedics got to the scene. he gave the man a coctail of drugs from the time he went to bed until he stopped breathing just for complaining about sleeplessness. and left him unattended after giving him all those drugs. even we non doctors know not to mix up drugs. simply put: he was extremely negligent.

Michaels family wasn't tucking him into bed at night, HOW were they to know what was going on??? This is a DOCTOR he should know better! What if a Dr. did this to your brother, dad, husband or son...would you feel the same way?? Not to mention Dr. Murray wasn't even an anesthesiologist! A Dr. takes an oath to look out for his patients not to do whatever they want as long as the MONEY looks good!
