Doctor responsible for Michael Jackson's death wants medical licence back

27 October 2013 / 3 years 2 days ago

The doctor responsible for Michael Jackson's death wants to re-enter the medical field.

Dr Conrad Murray was convicted of manslaughter and sentenced to four years behind bars in November 2011 as he administered the lethal dose of Propofol, which led to the King of Pop's death in 2009.

He has applied to have his medical licence reinstated ahead of his early release from prison on Monday (28.10.13).

The disgraced physician, who had a clinic in Texas prior to his conviction, filed a civil petition in Travis County, Texas on Friday (25.10.13).

He has asked a judge to stop the state medical board's revocation of his medical licence pending the outcome of his criminal appeal in California, according to the New York Daily News.

Texas was the first state to revoke his licence, citing his felony conviction in California as the reason.

His attorney said: "Dr. Murray has an unquenchable desire to help people, and no matter where it is, he will return to his given profession of healing."

Murray will be released on Monday as his sentence was recently reduced to two years due to his good behaviour and jail overcrowding.

The Los Angeles District Attorney's office is vowing to fight all efforts by Murray to get a medical licence anywhere in the country, according to gossip website
