Prosecution Press For Maximum Term and $100M Fine

Dr Conrad Murray will be sentenced next week, having been found guilty of the involuntary manslaughter of Michael Jackson.

The prosecution have filed a sentencing memo asking for Dr Murray to be sentenced to the maximum of four years in jail, together with a request that he be forced to pay Jackson's children over $100M in compensation for Jackson's loss of income.

Given that Dr Murray has lost his licence, it is unlikely that he will ever be able to pay that debt. However, if he were fined $100M it would ensure that he would never personally profit from any future media deals; as the monies earned would have to be used to pay down the debt.
