Conrad Murray Is Being Held In the Jail Medical Ward

Rucuss staffNovember 8, 2011

Dr. Conrad Murray is being held in the medical ward at the L.A. County Men’s Central Jail.

No, he didn’t have a heart attack when he came to grips with the fact that he’s stuck in jail until his sentencing on November 25. Murray, who was convicted of manslaughter, was assigned to the medical ward so that deputies can keep close tabs on him, TMZ reports. There are more deputies in the medial ward.

TMZ reports:

Law enforcement tell us … Murray has been assigned the medical ward while he’s being processed — as opposed to the regular holding area.

We’re told the medical ward has a “higher density of deputies” — which means it’s easier for officers to keep an eye on a high profile prisoner like Murray when he’s in the M.W.

As we previously reported, Murray has been deemed a “keep away prisoner” — which means officials must keep an eye on the doc at all times, as a matter of his own protection.

Murray was found responsible for Michael Jackson’s sudden death two years ago. The jury found him guilty of involuntary manslaughter.
