Monday, Conrad Murray will walk out of a Los Angeles county jail after serving time and he plans to practice medicine again if the medical board allows it.
A few days ago, Murray filed to have his medical license reinstated in the state of Texas; which may indicate his immediate plans. The Los Angeles district attorney has already stated that he will do anything to ensure that doesn’t happen, reported the IB Times.
Conrad Murray, 60, was charged with manslaughter but the charges were reduced. Murray was sentenced to a four year prison term in October of 2011, but is being released early because of prison overcrowding in California.
Prosecutors showed that Conrad Murray administered a lethal dose of propofol and caused Michael Jackson’s death. Jackson’s children want nothing to do with Murray and have asked him to leave the country after he is released, but Murray acts as though he has a connection with the children.
Numerous Jackson family members appeared in court during the trial.
Jurors in the trial were not allowed to watch video of Michael Jackson when he announced his comeback tour; Jackson appeared distraught and out of sorts. Murray’s lawyers said this was proof that Jackson was hung over, and that he was under an incredible amount of stress at the time.
Murray said that a news conference about the tour was delayed by 90 minutes because Jackson couldn’t pull himself together. Prior to the announcement, Jackson was also told that his tour would include 50 shows, not the initial 10 that he agreed to. The judge determined that the video wasn’t relevant to the case, and wouldn’t be used in the trial.
In February of 2010, Dr. Conrad Murray surrendered to police after being questioned several time about Michael Jackson’s death. Jackson died June 25, 2009, and it took nearly two months for the death certificate to be filed. His death was ruled a homicide in August 2009. Michael Jackson’s death certificate said that his death was due to “acute propofol intoxication” and “intravenous injection by another.”
