Dr. Conrad Murray’s mother is hoping her last cry for help will ease the sentencing of her son, who faces a four year jail term for the involuntary manslaughter of Michael Jackson. Milta Rush sent a letter to Judge Michael Pastor, begging for mercy.
In a letter obtained by TMZ, Ms. Rush says her son “has never been in trouble with the law before and I am barely standing, scared and worried sick about him being incarcerated.” She added, “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.”
She later adds: “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.”
Additionally, Ms. Rush expressed her condolences to the King of Pop’s mother Katherine, insisting she “feels her pain” and that she is “sorry for her lost.”
“I feel her pain for having lost her son,” she said. “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.”
Conrad Murray will be sentenced today (November 29) after being found guilty three weeks ago.
