Conrad Murray got official word that L.A. County Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor will control his fate during his manslaughter case in the death of Michael Jackson.

Dr. Conrad Murray Video
Members of Jackson's family, including Joe, Katherine, Janet, Randy and Jermaine sat and watched as Judge Peter Espinoza told Dr. Murray to go downstairs to Judge Pastor's court.

Murray is on his way downstairs right now ... and there's a big decision on the line ... whether Judge Pastor yanks Murray's medical license as a condition to bail.

Oh, shut your sorry defaming @zz up, Lawrence. Get off your duff and read the trial transcripts and everything else you can get your hands on. Then come back here and APOLOGIZE to MJ and his fans for your ignorance.

*****

If nothing else MJ can't harm anymore children and that's a good thing.

Dr Murray is not an anthestolgist so why would he take a chance doing what he did? I don't care if you are being paid to do it, that is when you press the person to get help. All the DOCTORS should loose their license that gave his this, no exceptions.
I am very sad MJ is dead, I hate hearing people say he has hurt children--you do no know this and I doubt he did such things. How dare you convict him in this way. The jury didn't!
Dr Murray should pay for this crime, he should not have a license in any state to practice medicine and he should never get it back. You don't mess with a life in this way. I don't care what the dollar amount is.
