That makes ZERO sense!!!
Finally, after over a year of waiting, in just a few short day the Michael Jackson murder trial will finally get under way. Dr. Conrad Murray will finally have to face the charges against him, alleging that it was his fault that MJ died from an overdose of Propofol. However, according to one legal expert, even if he is convicted of the crime, Murray might not end up in jail!
Here's the jargon, according to the source:
"[if Dr. Murray is convicted of the involuntary manslaughter charge] he could absolutely avoid state prison, and Judge Michael Pastor could sentence him to either straight probation, meaning he will serve no time at all, or to serve his sentence in a Los Angeles County jail. Judge Pastor has the sole discretion of how to sentence Dr. Murray if he is convicted … [since there was no weapon such as a gun, or a knife involved in the cause of death] Judge Pastor would be able to send Dr. Murray to a county jail. The District Attorney could oppose a sentence that didn't include state prison, but that is all they can do. Dr. Murray is facing four years maximum if he is convicted."
A technicality gets him off? Really? Where is the justice in that?
Let's just hope the prosecution has everything they need to really nail this guy. Hopefully, there case will be so solid, there will be zero wiggle room to let Murray off the hook .
