Prosecutors seek $100 million from Conrad Murray

Thursday November 24, 2011

Prosecutors are seeking $100 million from Doctor Conrad Murray after his conviction for involuntary manslaughter.

In a sentencing memorandum delivered to Judge Michael Pastor, lawyers have asked that the physician pay the amount in damages to Michael Jackson's children.

Documents filed by the District Attorney say Prince Michael, 14, 13-year-old Paris and Prince Michael II – aka Blanket – should be paid restitution for funeral expenses and lost profits.

As evidence prosecutor David Waldren cites a letter from the Jackson estate which states Michael would have made $100 million from the This Is It tour alone.

The DA says that Dr Murray has shown no remorse for the King of Pop's death.

They are seeking the full four year sentence because the doctor was "risking Mr jackson's life every night' with his use of the powerful anaesthetic propofol. Sentencing will take place on Tuesday.
