LAS VEGAS (AP) — Dr. Conrad Murray’s felony conviction for involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson could stop him from obtaining a medical license to practice again in Nevada.
Before his arrest in the June 2009 death of the 50-year-old Jackson, Murray operated cardiology practices in California, Texas and Nevada and lived in Las Vegas.
Nevada Medical Board official Edward Cousineau told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Murray didn’t renew the medical license he obtained in Nevada in 1999. It expired July 1.
Cousineau says Murray could reapply but a felony conviction relating to the practice of medicine is grounds for denial.
Murray lost his sprawling four-bedroom home on a Las Vegas golf course this year to foreclosure.
