TMZ reports the D.A. in the Conrad Murray trial is seeking damages worth $100million for MJ’s kids. A few things to note on the criminal law end. When you plead guilty to a crime or are convicted of a crime/crimes. You don’t just serve out your sentence in prison or county jail; depending on whether you are convicted of a misdemeanor or a felony. There are fines, fees and restitution (money) to the victim that you are also responsible for paying. This is what is at play below in the reported facts from TMZ.

“Prosecutors in the Conrad Murray manslaughter case are asking Judge Michael Pastor to order the doc to pay Michael Jackson’s children more than $100 million for their loss.

According to new court docs filed by the D.A., Michael Jackson’s kids are “entitled to wages or profits lost due to injury incurred by the victim.”

Prosecutors say MJ’s 3 kids are victims under the law, and are entitled to restitution from Dr. Murray … which include wages, lost profits and funeral expenses. The D.A. cites a letter from the MJ Estate, estimating Michael would have made $100 million in revenue from the “This Is It” tour.”

As we first reported, the D.A. is also seeking the maximum punishment — 4 years in State Prison. The D.A. says they are seeking the max because Murray was “risking Mr. Jackson’s life every night” by administering Propofol. And the D.A. says, MJ was a “particularly vulnerable victim.” And the D.A. says, Murray lied and covered-up his crime.
