    Updated at 2:43 P.M.: OnTheRedCarpet.com has confirmed that Michael Jackson's personal physician Dr. Conrad Murray will appear in a Los Angeles Superior Courtroom at 1:30 P.M. on Friday.

    A law enforcement source says prosecutors plan to charge Dr. Murray with involuntary manslaughter. Murray's attorneys say if that happens their client is ready to turn himself in.

    Murray came to Los Angeles, California, last weekend and spent Tuesday afternoon meeting with his newly assembled team of three lawyers.

    Meanwhile the Jackson family believes that involuntary manslaughter charges against the pop singer's physician would be "just a slap on the wrist."

    Jackson hired Murray to be his personal physician as he prepared for a strenuous series of comeback performances in London. Murray gave Jackson propofol and sedatives, but says nothing he gave the singer should have killed him.

    The King of Pop died at his Encino, California home on June 25, 2009.

    From the article linked above (with thanks):

    The King of Pop died at his Encino, California home on June 25, 2009.

    No, MJ was not at the family home in Encino at the time of his death. Too bad that the rest of the article is more than likely factual.

    I look back on Michael's life, how an overly aggressive prosecutor in S.B. County went after him with a vengeance indeed; and yet the L.A. DA may let this so-called doctor get away with murder, literally.

    What sort of message does this send?

    Imagine if the victim/patient had been your own Mother.

    Doctors should be held to a far higher standard; in fact, they usually are!

    It makes no difference whether MJ wanted or insisted upon the drugs.

    I'm 100% behind the Jackson Family on their take.

    2nd degree Murder, at the very least!

    The death doesnt meet the requirements for a charge of 2nd degree murder though.

    Because 2nd degree murder involves killing someone during the course of commiting a felony, and he didn't do that since as a physician he has the right to administer medication. There was no intent to harm the victim, so it isn't murder.
