Conrad Murray Charged in Michael Jackson Death

2/8/2010 4:31 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray has just been charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson.

Conrad Murray

According to the criminal complaint, the D.A. alleges Dr. Murray "did unlawfully, and without malice, kill Michael Joseph Jackson ... in the commission of an unlawful act, not a felony; and in the commission of a lawful act which might have produced death, in an unlawful manner, and without due caution and circumspection."

Dr. Murray will be arraigned today at 1:30 PM. As we first reported, he will plead not guilty.

Dr. Murray is expected to show up at around 1:00 PM, accompanied by his lawyers and a bail bondsman. Bail should be set at $25,000.

Dr. Murray administered Propofol to Jackson just before he died, and the L.A. County Coroner's Office has determined Jackson died as a result of acute Propofol intoxication.

If convicted, Dr. Murray faces a maximum of four years in prison.

I cannot believe this man is not getting hand cuffed and brought in, and is going to be out on $25,000.00 bail AND be able to go practice medicine.

Baffling...

I feel disheartened. I really thought there would be more charges brought against him in the end, and I can't belive he isn't being arrested. This isn't justice. I know that nothing would bring Michael back, but damn...this just sucks.

They don't really care about us......or MJ

Again, finally BUT the charges are not enough, he knew, for sure that he should not be giving MJ those drugs outside of a hospital setting.
I am praying for his family and hope that this will bring them some peace and closure.

I felt earlier I hated this man for supplying drugs to an addict, all for (a lot of) money. Now I maybe feel a little compassion for him too. That is, if he feels sorry and guilty for what he did! And I wonder, because pleading not guilty indicates he thinks he did nothing wrong. Anything.. anything for money...
His being charged is I think a just course of action. Regardless of criminal charges though, at the very least he should be struck off the register. What he did may be criminal, it is certainly unethical and violates the hippocratic oath.
It is all such a huge tragedy. Shakespeare couldn't have thought this up. I miss you Michael Jackson, still every day.

Yep 4 years and if convicted he will probably get a lighter sentence and then be
paroled in a short period of time. Because of his position in the community and
if his lawyers handle it right he may end up in one of those vacation spot prisons.
If convicted it is doubtful he will get the maximum sentence and doubtful
that he will spend more than a year in jail if that.

He killed Michael , he is supported by those who did not want Michael to do the concerts....

why did you Kill Michael Jackson America ! he was agood man everybody loved him and respected him..

he was making phonecalls when he left Michael dying alone ...it was a way to escape the moment...he was escaping from the fact that an innocent man was dying in the room...

he injected MJ with things when Mj was not a wake ... acute toxecation means alot of a medicine at one time....poisining Michael to stop his heart an dleaving him unable to breath for hours then using needles to show in the autopsy that he was a junki,,,but the needle marks were so fresh and his body had non before his death,,,, so this Murderer was trying to make the perfect crime but he forgot that God the creator is the perfect detective...RIP MJ.

In case you dolts haven't figured it out... all of you MJ fanatics have been slapped in your faces with this NON-FELONY charge and the $25,000 bail.

Where I come from, you walk out of court after paying ZERO - $2,500 cash.


This guy is going to paddled on his behind. But that's about it.
