Dr. Conrad Murray Hoping To Be Home For ChristmasDr. Conrad Murray Hoping To Be Home For Christmas
Posted on Nov 30, 2011 @ 12:30PM print it send it By Jen Heger - Radar Legal Editor

Dr. Conrad Murray could be released on house arrest by Christmas, to serve the remainder of his jail sentence for his role in the death of Michael Jackson, is exclusively reporting.

Judge Michael Pastor imposed the maximum allowed sentence -- four years in jail -- on Jackson's former doctor on Tuesday, and because of overcrowding in California correctional facilities, Murray wasn't sent to state prison, but to Los Angeles County Jail. The cardiologist's sentence was automatically cut in half, and Murray is eligible for house arrest because he is considered a non-violent felon.

"Dr. Murray's lawyers are actually relieved that Judge Pastor didn't sentence him to community service, they didn't want him doing manual labor at the morgue, like Lindsay Lohan is doing. That would have been an absolute nightmare for him, as he would certainly be mocked, and it wouldn't have been safe for him to be picking up trash on the freeway or cleaning up graffiti,” a source close to the situation tells

“Judge Pastor actually did Murray a favor by maxing him out,"

The decision to release Dr. Murray on house arrest will personally be approved by Sheriff Lee Baca. "The Sheriff will determine when Dr. Murray will be released on house arrest. Dr. Murray is hoping that he will be released by Christmas. His lawyers have told him that is a real possibility," the insider says.

As previously reported, Deputy District Attorney David Walgren said on The Today Show, "I think he certainly deserves the full weight of the punishment and he certainly deserves the full four years...How much time he actually serves at the end of the day will be up to the sheriff."

According to the ( California Penal Code Section 190.2 )

The penalty for a defendant (Conrat Murray) , if he is founded quilty of "MURDER IN THE FIRST DEGREE" is death or imprisonment in the State Prison for life without the possibility of parole, if one or more of the following special cir***tances has been found under (Section 190.4 of the California Penal Code) to be true.

(1) "INTENTIONALLY" and Carrying out the Murder of (Michael Jackson) for FINANCIAL GAIN"! ($150,000 per month x 12 = to $1,800,000 million per year salary from AEG ...),this proves that "Conrat Murray" really should've been charged by the DA's Office with (Murder in the First Degree)!! He should've not been undercharged with "Involuntary Manslaughter"!! (IMO)

NOW!! Is the time for "EVERYONE" who believe in "JUSTICE for MICHAEL JACKSON and the World" I'm asking that you,Please! contact: California Governor "Jerry Brown" and the District Attorney "Steve Cooley" requesting an answer from them on, Why the DA's office Undercharged "Conrad Murray" (2 YEARS AGO BEFORE HIS MURDER TRIAL STARTED) with "Involuntary Manslaughter" and not "Murder in the First Degree", for the Murder of "The Great Michael Joseph Jackson"?


I'm not buying into this (ACCIDENTAL OVERDOSE ARGUMENT) BS that the "PROSECUTION" is claiming was the procedures, that Conrat Murray used to murder "Michael Jackson"!!!

This is Totally Off-Topic! But I saw this article on Cats and it was so cute that I wanted to share it with all of the Cat lovers on the board. Hope that you will enjoy it!

..How Can We Get Our Cat to Sleep at Night?
.Posts .By | Pets – Mon, Nov 28, 2011 12:03 PM EST
By Dr. Marty Becker,

Q. Our young cat is keeping us up all night. I think he sleeps all day when we're at work, and all night he wants to play. What can we do?

A. Cats have night vision that puts any man-made invention to shame. When you think about that, it's not surprising that a lot of cats, especially young ones, love prowling about in the dark. If you have other plans (such as sleeping) they really don't care. It's showtime at the Cat Cabaret!

The "solution" to this problem used to be to put the cat outside, turn out the lights and go to sleep. But these days we know that remedy isn't the best. Free-roaming cats generally don't live anywhere near as long as indoor cats, because of the hazards of life outside. From cars and coyotes to cat-hating neighbors, there are plenty of dangers for a cat outside. And, of course, there's an argument to be made that these cats cause problems just by doing what comes naturally, including hunting and burying their feces in the neighbors' gardens. Keeping your cat inside is safer for your cat and more considerate of your neighbors.

When you bring a cat indoors, though, you can't just shut the door on him and call it a day. You have to provide for a cat's physical and mental needs by creating an enriched environment for him. That's the subject of a wonderful new book called Your Home, Their Territory: Creating the Right Habitat for Your Indoor Cats. The author is my friend and colleague Dr. Tony Buffington of The Indoor Pet Initiative at The Ohio State University Veterinary Medical Center.

Since I know that this behavior is common among indoor cats, I asked Dr. Buffington to weigh in with his suggestions for getting a good night's sleep with a cat in the house.

Change meal time. "Feed the cat before you go to bed vs. before you leave in the morning," Dr. Buffington suggests. Because we are all more likely to sleep after a meal (think about the postprandial pause after we push back from the Thanksgiving table!) feeding just before your bedtime will make your cat more likely to snooze, too.

Make time for playtime. "Providing play opportunities will help 'wear the cat out' before bed," Dr. Buffington says. If a long day at work leaves you too exhausted to play with Kitty, get a toy that your pet can play with on his own, like the Fling-ama-String, one of my Dr. Becker's Best from the Global Pet Expo. Set it up at the other end of the house and hit the sack!

Widen your cat's world. "I'd suggest they enrich the environment so they're not the only source of the cat's stimulation and activity," Dr. Buffington says. "Add feeding puzzles, window perches with bird feeders outside, cat videos, etc." This keeps your cat busy all day and makes him more likely to sleep all night.

I love these suggestions from Dr. Buffington. Not only will they help you sleep, but they'll also make your cat happier as well. Talk about a win-win!
