    Was Conrad Murray fairly convicted and sentenced?

    Dr. Conrad Murray, the physician treating Michael Jackson at the time of the singer's death, has been sentenced to 4 years in prison, and may be ordered to pay restitution to the singer's estate, for monies lost from his canceled sold-out tour.

    He had a fair trial and will be in jail for less than 4 years.  That is fair.  Sadly, he will no longer be able to be a doctor, and spent most of his assets in his defense.  This will be a greater loss to him once he us released.

    I feel we all knew Michael must have wanted this upon him - I doubt Conrad deliberately murdered him. Michael has always lived with a large amount of stress and sadness, I guess it must have been too much in the end.

    Yes. He received a fair trial and not a very harsh sentence in terms of time in prison. He was a doctor and should have given advice and treatment to Jackson.

    In my own thinking...............take what matters and leave the rest.........



    Conrad Murray would NEVER have been charged if it were not for " Michael Jackson"...............

    you get the idea..................

    THEIR deaths would have brought no  such  investiagation................  Dr. Murray, IS ' the whipping boy"...............


    The TRUTH is. ........Michael Johnson HAD enough money to buy a doctor...............and you want to PUNISH A DOCTOR for having, been bought.


    We really need to look beyond both, Jackson, and Murray.


    Jackson got the drugs that he paid for.

    I can't understand why Michael Jackson needed a doctor to get drugs. The USA is full of people selling drugs on the underground. It is a multi-billion dollar business run by the drug mafioso.

    The short answer is yes he is guilty and the sentence is fair.
    Being a doctor means more than handing out drugs. Doctors, especially one so close to his patient, are supposed to be watching for signs of addiction and monitoring their intake as much as is possible.
    Murray did neither and facilitated MJ for years.
    Times have changed from the old days of "Dr. Feel Good" who just hands out pills. Look at how hard it has become to get things like pain meds for most of us.
    Murray wasn't only handing out pills he was administering a drug that should only be given in a hospital, by an anesthesiologist, on an almost daily basis. That is irresponsible beyond the terms of simple oversight.
    If MJ was having that much trouble with insomnia why wasn't he being treated for it in a legitimate way?
    Every qualified witness testified that he was being reckless and that the drug should never be used in the manner that MJ was getting it from Murray.
