Jackson Family

Going After Dr. Murray's Money


1/18/2012 3:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Prosecutors will no longer seek more than $100 million in restitution from Dr. Conrad Murray at the request of Michael Jackson's family, because as the proverb goes can't squeeze blood from a turnip.

A rep for the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office says prosecutors were informed that the Jackson family is giving up on restitution ... so the D.A. withdrew the request.  As a result, the restitution hearing scheduled for Monday has been called off.

Murray -- who's serving a 4 year jail sentence for his role in the death of MJ -- is basically broke ... and now that his medical license has been revoked, it's unclear how he plans to earn money once he's released.

It seems the Jackson family finally decided it wasn't worth the time or the energy to battle for scraps.

Sad lesson for Prince, Paris and Blanket to learn: don´t trust anyone.
That´s why you need a mom. A mom will never go away. I hope they have one in Katherine Jackson, and by the way, where ARE their real moms?
We know one of them, I have feeling she will be there always, but what about the brilliant little Blanket? He needs his mom.

Too bad that all of the little boys that MJ molested never had the opportunity to "battle for scraps." It's a real shame that Conrad Murray is serving time for MJ's drug addiction, while throughout MJ's entire life he got off scott free with child molestation. What a sick pervert!


Obviously you haven't read do***ent's from both 1994 case & the 2005 case Both Children's Parent's were the people who were trying to set up Michael by claiming their Son's were Molested by Mike especially the 2005 Case By Janet Arvio For her Son Gavin Arvio who new about the first case in 1994 Which they tried to Copycat & get Millions In This Case we all found out the Mother was A con artist who used her own Children to get Money & Michael wasn't the first Celebrity The Arvio Family got money from this also came into the Case
She lied & Sued A JC Penny's falsely Claiming that One of the Guards there Floundled her .

Jourdan Chandler Came out years ago & after his own Fathers Death Claiming His own Father lied & made him lie to get Millions Of Dollars from Mike back in 1994 This is Why His Father Killed himself is because Jordan stop having anything to do with his own Father once he turned 18 Because he said His Father made him Do it .

Plus What Real Parent would take Money from A child Molester Instead of taking him to court Cause Both Parents of Both Boys Only wanted Money they really wasn't doing stuff because they cared about their Kids they Cared about that Money & to me Thats ****ing Child Abuse .

Go & Read Do***ent's from both Cases Before you set here & call someone A damn Pervert
