Conrad Murray Case

D.A. Wants Doc to Pay

More than $100 MILLION!!!

11/24/2011 12:43 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1123_conrad_murray_bn_doc
Prosecutors in the Conrad Murray manslaughter case are asking Judge Michael Pastor to order the doc to pay Michael Jackson's children more than $100 million for their loss.
 
According to new court docs filed by the D.A., Michael Jackson's kids are "entitled to wages or profits lost due to injury incurred by the victim."

Prosecutors say MJ's 3 kids are victims under the law, and are entitled to restitution from Dr. Murray ... which include wages, lost profits and funeral expenses.  The D.A. cites a letter from the MJ Estate, estimating Michael would have made $100 million in revenue from the "This Is It" tour. 

As we first reported, the D.A. is also seeking the maximum punishment -- 4 years in State Prison.  The D.A. says they are seeking the max because Murray was "risking Mr. Jackson's life every night" by administering Propofol.  And the D.A. says, MJ was a "particularly vulnerable victim."  And the D.A. says, Murray lied and covered-up his crime.

Their loss? Michael Jacksons estate is making more money now than they ever could have while he was alive. His tour was called "this is it" suggesting he was retiring.

Why is the DA getting involved in the civil side of this case? His job is criminal prosecution, let MJ's lawyers sue Murray if that is what they want.

Michael Jackson was very heavily in debt. Typical Jackson crap. No wonder why Michael stayed far away. Sponging off of his success.


Guess the J5 collection (which is your brothers jackets) not working out well?


$2,400.00 for a replical jackets signed by no one cares.

MJ might well have made $100 million. However what the DA doesn't want to address is the fact that MJ would have spent much more than the $100 million he would have made. So the question remains, should MJ's children be required to pay Dr. Murray for all the money he saved? Me thinks yes...

Let's it so the Jackson's get millions more, Murray is never able to make a dime and his own kids end up on welfare with us paying for them. Yeah, that makes sense. You people are insane.

I am so sick of Michael Jackson who played a prominent role in his own demise. That is one point. The other point is the doc made bad mistakes. So did many other docs who are now breathing collective sighs of relief. Let Michael rest in peace, his kids have enough money for a thousand kids to live a good life, don't charge YOURSELVES for the insurance money! You and I will pay that money! Not the doc!

This will go no where. Regardless, Jackson's death earned the estate more money than he would have made during the tour.

Might as well make it a billion, he doesn't have that either. Sounds like they are trying to recover some of the money they paid out to Michael's molestation victims.

The Jackson family is one very ridiculous family....at this point they should all be embarassed of how they are taking advantage of Micheals death....I'd be ashamed if my family ever acted even remotely as the Jackson family....MONEY GRABBING IDIOTS!!! They've lost sight of what is important....they were going to even sell his death bed!!! GOODNESS!!!

Great !! We pay to raise Conrad's kids on welfare, and handouts, and MJ' kids are richer beyond belief, much richer than they ever would have been with MJ's uncontrollable spending.
