Medical Board Reprimands Conrad Murray Over Child Support
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The doctor charged with involuntary manslaughter in Michael Jackson’s death has received a public letter of reprimand from the Medical Board of California acknowledging actions taken against him in Nevada over child support.
California board spokeswoman Jennifer Simoes said such letters are routine to notify the public of an action against a doctor’s license in another state.
The Nevada State Board of Medical Examiners reprimanded Dr. Conrad Murray in December for failing to disclose on his 2007 and 2009 license renewal applications that he was behind on child support payments in California.
Murray continues to practice in Nevada, but his California medical license is suspended pending his criminal trial.
Murray has pleaded not guilty. His lawyer, Edward Chernoff, said he was unaware of the new reprimand letter and declined comment.
