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.

I don't think they should be filing charges at all.

Imprisonment of any type will prove traumatic for this doctor. The type of people that will be around him will make him quite uncomfortable. He brought this on himself. Those people have nothing to loose; so they will do anything. Yikes!!

What do you idiots not understand about a doctor and the oath they take to practice ethical medicine? This wasn't street drugs and a pusher. This was a freaking medical specialist that knew better!!! It doesn't matter if Michael was begging him for drugs, or threatening to fire him. It was Murray's obligation to do right by his patient and say no. Greed trumped his morals and logic. He is 100% culpable for MJ's death and should be punished accordingly....preferably by serving time.

@ - 39. 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.

He (MJ) was an addict, Dr. CM, should've known better, the nurse he asked to give him propofol refused and that's excatly what ALL the Dr.'s that provided for MJ whether if it was plastic surgery to drugs..should've done! Plain and simple.. turned him away, but they were afaraid of being out of the spotlight and as you said pushed away.

There's a MD ethics code I believe so they should've never put their needs in front of a person who they well know is an addict! Now everyone wants to blame MJ and his SPOILED / MANIPULATIVE / SELFISH ways, well I think there is something wrong with everyone here, They committed a crime and did this out of his own greed,financial presures,wanting to be around a famous person, etc.. I get and understand your point but many addicts don't think of anyone but themselves, they are not in touch with reality!

Many of these Dr.'s are running around slicing up celebrities faces to get there name out there or to make a name ( good or bad- bad publicity is Good publicity/ better than none at all)and others expense! Something should be done to All the Dr.'s involved and send a message to all the Hollywood pushers (Dr.'s) that it's not going to be tolerated anymore, most of these celebrities are addicts and as in MJ'S case he seemed to be mentally unstable. Who knows this is my point of view.

I hope they throw the book at him. He admitted of giving these drugs to Michael before he died. He had know business of giving these drugs to him. As his heart doctor he knew better. The only reason he done it was for the dollar signs. He wasn't thinking anymore about Michael then the man on the moon. For a doctor to give medication that he didn't know anything about and then leave a room to make phone calls that tells me that he didn't give a sh**. Wheter or not it was Michael Jackson or joe blow he know business leaving the room. His responsiblity was in that room not phone calls. So I say throw the book at him and make him pay. Make these other doctors learn a lesson from this. I hope that you get the justice you deserve MichaelI also feel that the FBI and the Media should write an apolize to his family and children for all of the remarks that was made about him molesting children when the FBI knew that it wasn't true but didn't say anything until after Michael died. That is what ruined him. I feel that it is only fair that they do this to prove to the world that he didn't hurt children. So that the world will leave him alone. May you RIP you are loved missed but never forgotten. You were an angel on this earth. Gone to soon. Sadley missed Myra

Plea bargain. He loses his license, gets no jail time.

Plus, they build a statue of him to celebrate offing a child molester.
