All tag results for involuntary manslaughter
Guess we'll find out soon if their pleas have any effect!
Deputy District Attorney David Walgren is pushing for Conrad Murray to be given the maximum sentence for being found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in Michael Jackson's death.
Murray's family and friends, on the other hand, want the judge to take it easy on him!
Here's what Murray's baby momma Nicole Alvarez had to say about it in a letter she wrote to the judge:
Oooh no. This is horribly, horribly sad.
Makayla Norman died at the young age of fourteen back in March. She suffered from cerebral palsy and malnutrition. At the time of death, she only weighed 28 pounds…
Her mother and three nurses are now charged with the blame. The prosecutor said the home reeked of filth and that the victim had bed sores and other signs of neglect.
County prosecutor Mathias Heck Jr states:
The jury in the Conrad Murray trial has finally reached a verdict. They went into deliberations last Thursday and reached a verdict this morning.
In case you've been living in a cave or under a rock, Conrad Murray is accused of causing the death of Michael Jackson by giving him lethal amounts of propofol to treat his insomnia.
If he is found guilty of involuntary manslaughter, Murray faces up to four years in prison and the loss of his medical license.
Meanwhile, MJ's parents, along with his siblings La Toya, Jermaine, and Randy have been notified that a verdict has been reached and are en route to the courthouse from Calabasas to Los Angeles. They are said to be "anxious." We don't blame them. As for Michael's kids, they will be staying home and will NOT be watching the verdict live on television.
The verdict will be announced today at
MJ's Fingerprints M.I.A. From Propofol Bottle, Despite Dr. Murray's Claims That He Gave Himself The Lethal Dose!
We wonder how he's going to try and explain this one!
The involuntarily manslaughter trial for Dr. Conrad Murray is finally well underway, and despite his lawyers alleging that when the cardiologist left Michael Jackson briefly on the day he died, it was the pop icon himself who gave himself the fatal dosage of Propofol, a source close to the case has revealed that the Los Angeles police department found NO proof of such, as his fingerprints were no where to be found on the prescription bottles!
The insider explains:
Dr. Conrad Murray's trial for the involuntary manslaughter of the King of Pop began on Tuesday morning.
According to sources, Michael Jackson's former doctor isn't only losing sleep over the threat of being jailed for 4 years if convicted, but he's losing weight!
Apparently, he's already lost between 10 and 15 pounds, as a source explained:
“With the trial beginning, Dr. Murray is having trouble eating and sleeping. Dr. Murray is deeply religious, and his faith is the one thing that seems to be sustaining him right now."
Defending yourself against manslaughter charges is one diet plan we DON'T suggest! Ha!
Do U think MJ's former doc who allegedly gave his patient a lethal dose of the drug Propofol will be found guilty?

Michael Jackson's oldest kids Prince and Paris Jackson have expressed interest that they would like to testify in the Dr. Conrad Murray manslaughter trial.
Murray, who is charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of 2009 death of Michael Jackson, is currently on trial over the excessive amount of propofol he allegedly administered to the singer.
A Jackson family insider says:
"Katherine is resisting the move, because she knows how traumatic it would be for them, but both Prince Michael and Paris have said they want to tell the jury what they saw on the day their father died. Both LaToya and Katherine agree, however, that Blanket should not testify as he is too young.
Prince and Paris are determined to take the stand, though. Ultimately, I don't believe Katherine will deny them that chance, even though she doesn't want them to and has told them so. The kids have said they don't want their father's legacy to be tarnished by the trial and they believe their evidence will help convict Doctor Murray.
LaToya has said it would be good for the children to, 'Get what is inside them, out of them.' She feels it is a way for them to release the hurt. Above all though, she believes her brother was murdered and what Prince Michael and Paris could tell the jury, would inevitably help convict the doctor."
We're not sure if this is the best idea. The children are still fairly young and it could be heartbreaking for them to have to endure the testimonies that will go on during that trial.
This might devastate them even more.
