Michael Jackson’s doctor in big, big trouble

At a preliminary hearing yesterday against Michael Jackson’s physician, a bodyguard who was present when Jackson’s body was found testified that he was told by the physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, not to call 911 right away but to first look for and dispose of some incriminating items that Murray didn’t want police or paramedics to discover.

The bodyguard, Alberto Alvarez, testified that he wasted 21 minutes gathering up syringes and other evidence of Jackson’s propofol overdose before he was finally allowed to call 911.  Frankly, I don’t think it’s looking too good for Dr. Murray, who will very likely be returned to just “Mr. Murray” before he gets sent to prison for involuntary manslaughter.  Mind you, the sentence is only four years, and he’ll probably be out in 18 months.
