Conrad Murray Back In Court, Michael Jackson Helped Kill Himself

Filed under : Celebrity News

Conrad Murray will return to court to try to show that Michael Jackson is at least partly responsible for is own death.

He wants the judge to reduce the amount if restitution he must pay to Michael Jackson’s family. The doctor has already been found guilty of involuntary manslaughter so he cannot deny his own involvement. The only way for him to reduce the amount he must pay in restitution is by showing that Michael Jackson is also at least partly responsible for his own death.

Murray filed legal documents yesterday asking for evidence the defense never received during the trial. He says that it is evidence that could show Michael self-administered the fatal dose of Propofol.

Murray’s lawyer, Michael Flanagan, argues that in deciding how much restitution the family should be paid, the victim’s responsibility for his own death is an important factor.

So Murray will have to concede he is partly to blame. His conviction for involuntary manslaughter means he can’t avoid that, but he still wants to prove that Michael Jackson ultimately caused his own death.

The prosecution is currently asking for around $100 million in restitution, but the judge has yet to decide on a figure.  However, once the figure is set, if Conrad Murray’s appeal through Flanagan was successful and the judge were to decide Michael Jackson was 50% responsible for his own death, the judge would reduce the restitution award by 50%.

So there is a way to go yet in the fallout from the Conrad Murray trial.

    1) Murray’s attorneys never requested this “evidence” until after he’d been found guilty of killing Jackson. At that time, Judge Pastor correctly denied the request because they could have made it at any time prior to & during the long trial and had chosen not to (because they knew this “evidence” was useless except to delay sentencing and try to smokescreen Murray’s guilt).

    2) Murray is insisting he’s destitute & has no money for attorneys–yet here’s his trial team, including attorney Michael Flanagan, still representing him, and I doubt very much that they’re doing it free of charge
