Dr. Conrad Murray’s mother, Milta Rush, has formally begged Judge Pastor for mercy for her son when he is sentenced tomorrow. Dr. Murray was found guilty of the involuntary manslaughter of Michael Jackson and faces up to four years in state prison as a consequence. First off – there is no good reason that Dr. Murray should be treated any more mercifully by the judge than he treated poor Michael. Dr. Murray took advantage of Michael’s drug dependency to profit enormously by becoming his licensed drug dealer. Instead of putting Michael’s interests first – as a good doctor is obliged to – he put his own greed and hubris ahead of MJ’s well being. The consequences of Dr. Murray’s criminal behaviour cost Michael his life.
Dr. Murray’s mom says she’s “suffering” from overwhelming sadness because her only son is incarcerated and has begged the judge to go easy on him when it comes to his sentence. I wouldn’t count on that, would you?
TMZ has the scoop: Mrs. Milta Rush sent a letter to Judge Pastor — explaining why Murray deserves mercy … because he’s a good person who has “never drank alcohol, took drugs or smoked cigarettes in his life. Milta explains, “He has never been in trouble with the law before and I am barely standing, scared and worried sick about him being incarcerated.”
“He is saddened and remorseful about the death of his friend Michael Jackson and I do believe he is certainly learning the toughest lesson of his life.”
Milta continues, “I sympathize with Mrs. Jackson as a mother; I feel her pain for having lost her son. I sense she was very close to her son. I really wanted to approach her personally and tell her I am sorry for the loss of her son but I was unsure if she would be receptive, and I did not want to take the chance of violating the courts rules. I am sorry for her loss. Judge Pastor, Conrad, is my son and as a mother I must say I know him inside out. He is sorry for what happened to Michael and had no intent towards him.”
“I humbly beg for your heart felt consideration of everything I have said about Conrad, and ask for your compassion and leniency in giving him probation or community service.”
One is tempted to laugh at the part of Milta’s plea where she says that her son never took drugs! No, Milita, Murray never took drugs – he just gave them to Michael Jackson in a fatal dose and then tried to cover his own ass rather than save his patient. I mean really… .
