CELEBRITY CRIME FILES: MICHAEL JACKSON
By Amber B
Michael Jackson is recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the most successful entertainer of all time, selling hundreds of millions of records, packing stadiums and winning every major accolade that the music industry has to offer.
But the ‘King of Pop’ had physical and emotional scars that reached back to childhood as well as a career was marred by allegations of sexual indiscretions. In 1993, Jackson was accused of molesting a young boy,kicking off a media firestorm. While the charges were never substantiated (Jackson’s lawyers settled all lawsuits out of court) Jackson’s image was tarnished.
In 2009, while prepping for his comeback tour, This is It, Jackson was discovered barely conscious in his rented mansion in LA by his personal physician, Dr.Conrad Murray. Murray claimed to have tried to resuscitate him, but to no avail, although he was scrutinized for the time he wasted prior to contacting 911. Once a dangerous level of painkillers were found in Jackson’s system, Dr. Murray, who prescribed them, was charged and found guilty of involuntary manslaughter. He was sentenced to four years in prison.
