Michael Jackson Doc Gets Max Sentence


No probation. The judge says “Michael Jackson was an experiment.” Dr. Conrad Murray goes to the Los Angeles County Jail for four years. Judge Pastor is brilliant. Finally, some justice in L.A. Now watch the Jackson family go after him for anything that’s not nailed down financially. The court orders Dr. Murray may have to pay over $100 million restitution to the Jackson children and the family. There will be a restitution hearing later. Murray could be held responsible for all the money Michael didn’t make in London with the 50 concerts. Wow.
