Michael Jackson's doctor to face license suspension

Posted on

Conrad Murray, Michael Jackson’s former doctor, could have his medical license revoked if a petition — filed yesterday in Los Angeles by Jerry Brown on behalf of the California Medical Board — is approved, according to Reuters. In the 12-page filing, Brown states: “[The] Defendant is alleged to have administered a lethal dose of propofol and other powerful drugs to patient M.J., which resulted in the patient’s death. The exercise of such poor professional judgment and placing the life of a patient in jeopardy requires that the [California Medical] Board take measures to protect the public from future harm.” Murray a cardiologist, has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter charges in the pop star’s death. He is free on $75,000 bail and if convicted, faces up to four years in jail.
