Will CA Medical Board Allow Conrad Murray To Practice Medicine Again?
Prior to Michael Jackson’s shocking death, Dr. Conrad Murray enjoyed the life of luxury. Reportedly making over $100,000 a month, the medical doctor enjoyed the rights and privileges that went along with his medical degree and being the private doctor of one of the most recognizable names in the music industry.
During the trial that eventually led to his conviction and imprisonment, Dr. Murray professed his innocence and proclaimed that he did everything within his power to treat and try to save The King of Pop. However, a jury saw otherwise and Dr. Murray was convicted of neglecting his moral, ethical and professional duties in the care and treatment of Michael Jackson.
Murray, who is serving the last month of his jail sentence, has reportedly expressed interest in practicing medicine again. His license is currently suspended, but he could submit documentation to have it reinstated so that he can practice again.
Well, TMZ.com is reporting that Dr. Murray may not see that desire come to fruition. The site reports, “ The Medical Board started the ball rolling to revoke Murray’s license, but it’s been put on hold while he tries to get an appeals court to reverse the verdict. As for why … we’re told board members have already discussed the case — the fact that Murray was fueling MJ with Propofol for 60 days straight and allowed him to massively OD just before he dιed. They also think it’s unconscionable that Murray shockingly abused Propofol by using it as a sleeping aid.”
Although this story is still unfolding and the Medical Board has not confirmed or denied the report, many who followed Dr. Murray’s trial carefully would probably hesitate before allowing him to serve as their physician. Then again, we live in the land of second and third chances.
Do you feel like Dr. Murray has paid his dues and deserves a chance to practice medicine again?
