Dr. Conrad Murray

Medical Board Orders Him

To Turn Over Medical Certificate

1/3/2012 11:43 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

This has gotta hurt.  Dr. Conrad Murray has been ordered to turn over the medical certificate that hangs on the wall of his medical office.

TMZ has just obtained documents filed by the Medical Board of California, notifying the incarcerated doc that his California medical license has been suspended -- something that automatically happens when someone is convicted of a felony and sent to the slammer.

The Med Board is giving Murray 15 days to turn over his medical certificate.

If the wall is too bare, he can always hang a picture of Michael Jackson ...

He'll go to his office RIGHT NOW and get that certificate down and get that right to you, Medical Board. If he doesn't, go ahead, lock him up. Oh that's right, he already is! Go get the certificate yourself.

In many parts of the United States, a convicted felon can face long-term legal consequences persisting after the end of their imprisonment, including:


Disenfranchisement (which the Supreme Court interpreted to be permitted by the Fourteenth Amendment)
Exclusion from obtaining certain licenses, such as a visa, or professional licenses required in order to legally operate (making many vocations off-limits to felons)
Exclusion from purchase and possession of firearms, ammunition and body armor
Ineligibility for serving on a jury
Ineligibility for government assistance or welfare, including being barred from federally funded housing
Deportation (if the criminal is not a citizen)


Additionally, most job applications and rental applications ask about felony history, (with the exception of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts) and answering dishonestly on them can be grounds for rejecting the application, or termination if the lie is discovered after hire. It is legal to discriminate against felons in hiring decisions as well as the decision to rent housing to a person, so felons face barriers to finding both jobs and housing. A common term of parole is to avoid associating with other felons. In some neighborhoods with high rates of felony conviction, this creates a situation where many felons live with a constant threat of being arrested for violating parole.[11]


Many bonding companies will not issue bonds to convicted felons, also effectively barring them from certain jobs. Many banks will refuse service to convicted felons.


Some states also consider a felony conviction to be grounds for an uncontested divorce.


The status and designation as a "convicted felon" is considered permanent, and is not extinguished upon sentence completion even if parole, probation or early release was given.[11] The status can only be cleared by a successful appeal or executive clemency. However, felons may be able to apply for restoration of some rights after a certain period of time has passed.


In some states, restoration of those rights may depend on repayment of various fees associated with the felon's arrest, processing, and prison stay.[11]

From the moment all the chaos of Michael Jackson's death broke out, not even once I saw Murray acting or showing remorse for what he did. All the while he's had a me,me,me attitude. He pointed fingers at everyone he could to save his ass. This happens when you act with a guilty conscience. He knew his actions were not legal and were punishable by law if caught. As a grown man, he should have thought about the sacrifices he made to go to college, the long hours of studying and the shame he would put on his mother and family. I don't feel sorry for him. Nobody twisted his arm to get into this and he knew what he was doing all along!

He comes across to me like the kind of person that smiles at you and tells you he's your friend, but if something goes wrong, you are on your own!

It's hard to believe that this guy had a medical license to begin with. So many shady characters are surrounding MJ's name and the Jacksons's business interests, it's really pathetic. There is an interesting blog that shows pics and controversial facts about the Jackson Tribute Fragrances... http://jacksontributefragrances.blogspot.com
