Dr. Conrad Murray's

Medical License SUSPENDED

1/11/2011 9:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray's medical license has just been suspended.

Judge Michael Pastor just ordered the suspension, as a condition to Dr. Murray's bail in the Michael Jackson manslaughter case.

The Medical Board of California has asked the court twice before to yank Murray's license, to no avail.  But minutes after ordering Murray to stand trial, Judge Pastor granted the request.

Dr. Murray has 24 hours to notify the medical boards in Texas and Nevada of Judge Pastor's decision.

It's a devastating blow to Murray, because he needs to practice to make enough money to pay his legal team.  Murray's team believes the move is designed to take away his right to defend himself in the manslaughter trial.

In California can a involuntary manslaughter charge be upgraded to 2nd degree murder during trial?

"Once the judge has ruled, there is a period of time (15 calendar days) between the preliminary hearing and a second arraignment. The DA then files whatever charges they think were proven at the preliminary hearing in a new charging do***ent called an information. In most cases, they file charges that are the same as the judge's ruling. The prosecution can file additional charges - either extra charges, higher charges or lower charges.

From there, the defense can challenge those new charges in a Penal Code section 995 motion. Let's say, for example, that the judge ruled that there wasn't enough evidence for murder, but there was enough for manslaughter. The prosecution disagrees and decides to file murder charges anyway. The defense would then file a 995 motion to challenge those charges. A different judge would then review the transcript of the preliminary hearing and rule on whether or not there was sufficient evidence to support the charges.

The defense can file a 995 motion in any criminal case to challenge the sufficiency of the evidence, even if the charges don't change from the initial charges. The defense can always challenge whether or not the defendant was held to answer based on enough evidence."

Michael mistakenly trusted Dr. Murder and it cost him his life.

Michael's children are in deep pain because they loved their dad.

Michaels's children and family who truly loved him, deserve Justice!

A possible four year sentence is the smallest potential punishment.

Dr. Murder was and is deeply in debt, so what better way to write a book and make millions by killing one of the most famous and generous people in the world. (Motive)
