It’s official. Dr. Conrad Murray will stand trial for killing Michael Jackson….
At the conclusion of his preliminary hearing yesterday, Judge Michael Pastor ruled that there was enough evidence to prosecute Dr. Murray on one count of Involuntary Manslaughter.
He also ordered Dr. Murray’s medical license to be suspended immediately . . . saying, “[The] overall consideration is the protection of the public. The continued practice by Dr. Murray does pose an imminent danger to the state of California.”
During the six-day hearing, Murray’s attorneys tried to suggest that Michael administered the fatal dose of propofol to himself.
But two doctors who testified yesterday said that even if that were the case, Murray would still have been guilty of negligence, since he was the attending physician.
Murray’s arraignment . . . where he’ll be formally charged and allowed to enter his plea . . . will take place on January 25th. He faces up to four years in prison if convicted.
