Dr. Conrad Murray To Keep License

Michael Jackson's physician Dr. Conrad Murray will not have his medical license revoked.

The medic - who has been accused of administering lethal amounts of Propofol and other drugs to the late King of Pop shortly before his passing on June 25 last year - will legally be allowed to continue working as a doctor, despite being charged with involuntary manslaughter over the star's shock death aged 50.

In a court hearing in Los Angeles yesterday (14.06.10), Judge Michael Pastor admitted he did not have the power to overturn the decision previously made by another judge.

He said: "I don't have ability to revisit the actions of one of my colleagues. I do not have jurisdiction to revisit this matter. It doesn't have anything to do with how I feel or what I think. It has to do with the law and this court's ability to follow the law."

Yesterday's hearing was the fourth time attempts have been made by the office of California's attorney general to suspend Murray's medical license - which allows him to continue practicing as a doctor.

Members of Michael's family - including his parents Joe and Katherine Jackson, brother Tito and sister La Toya - apparently gasped in disbelief when the doctor's defence lawyer said taking his license from him would stop him helping people.

They also argued he needed to continue working to pay for his defence case, and told the judge he had no plans to practise in California.

The 57-year-old medic is due in court for a preliminary hearing on August 23.

If convicted of involuntary manslaughter, he faces up to four years in prison.

This is such sad and devastating news, not only for Michael's fans but his family. When this hearing was scheduled why wasn't a higher judge appointed to the case who had the authority to overturn the last judges decision? Murray's attorney's using the tatic of him saving a woman's life on that plane is crazy. This woman supposedly was unconscious for 30 minutes, if this WAS the case, the plane would have made an emergency landing or turned the plane around as the flight wasn't even an hour flight.This makes me wonder three things 1. just how much Dr. Murrays attorney's are paying these judges to get him (Murray) off the hook 2. could these judges be any of the same that heard the 2005 and before trial and see this as a way to get revenge because they had no evidence to convict Michael on the ludicrous charges, 3. How much was the flight crew and this woman paid to say that Murray saved her life. Our judicial system in the US is so corrupt, judges get paid off all the time, drug dealers get more time in prison than a murderer or rapist. Murray only faces four years IF convicted, this means he could get out in 18 months on good behaviour if no one kills him in prison first which, he wont have to worry about because they (the prison) will see that he is isolated from the other prisoners to keep him safe. I do understand how all of us as fans of Michael feel about this but, I do hope none of us take matters in our own hands and do something we will regret. Murray will have to face a higher authority one way or another one day and then justice will be served for Michael, his family and fans.We all L.O.V.E Michael and want justice to be served but, lets not forget Michael would not approve of any one of us taking matters in our own hands.We L.O.V.E you Michael, rest well angel. We are all fighting for your justice!
