Jermaine Jackson sat down with Entertainment Tonight for an interview about Michael Jackson‘s former personal physician Dr. Conrad Murray‘s upcoming case. “I just feel like it took so long to arrest this guy,” he says.
“And to just [let this linger on, it is] putting daggers in our hearts and my mother’s,” he tells Entertainment Tonight.
He goes on to say that the Jackson family is upset with how the case is being handle, how long it has taken and that Dr. Murrary is reportedly only expected to be charged Monday with involuntary manslaughter and not second-degree murder.
If Dr. Murray is convicted of involuntary manslaughter he could possibly serve no time behind bars.
“I think he [Murray] should be cuffed, he should be fingerprinted, he should have his mugshot just like they did my brother,” Jermaine says of how he feels about Dr. Murray potentially turning himself in without being arrested.
“It could be first-degree murder, it could be whatever — Michael’s not coming back, so where’s the closure?” Jermaine asks. “Where is the closure?”
“I should have been smarter about what he [Murray] administered to my brother outside a hospital setting,” he says. “Michael was excited about his shows and he should still be here.”
