Michael Jackson’s Doctor Conrad Murray Might Soon Be Set Free
Michael Jackson’s doctor, who was attending to him during his last days, was awarded a four year jail sentence just last November. The reason behind this was the fact that, it was proven Murray had a hand in the singer’s demise in 2009. The reason being sighted for Murray’s early release might amaze many. In other words, Murray’s legal team wants Murray released by this Christmas if possible, because the jails are too crowed.
His lawyer Valerie Wass was quoted as saying “I hope Conrad may be allowed to come home for Christmas. It is ridiculous he has been in there for a year. He is not dangerous, violent or the type you need to take off the streets to punish him. They have already stripped him of his medical license, and it is a waste of everybody’s time and money to have him in there”. The argument might sound outrageous to some, as the same logic could be used to release Bernie Madoff from jail, some would say. The man conned people out of their money, but he isn’t dangerous per say, not in the literal sense of the word at least. After all, Madoff wouldn’t attack someone on the street with knife or try to run down someone with his car.

Wass on her part is suggesting that, Murray perform community service to make up for the rest of his jail term.

Murray first met Jackson in Las Vegas when the doctor treated one of the singer’s children. AEG Live said the singer insisted the company hire Murray to accompany him to England.
On January 11, 2011, the judge from Murray’s preliminary hearing determined that Murray should stand trial for involuntary manslaughter in the Jackson case. The judge also suspended Murray’s license to practice medicine in California.The trial began on September 27, 2011.On November 7, 2011, Murray was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter and he was held without bail to await sentencing.
