Dr. Conrad Murray Sentenced To Four Years In Prison

While Dr. Jack Kevorkian was considered a martyr for his actions, Dr. Conrad Murray hasn’t been allowed the same exclusive title. After a six-week trial that found the physician guilty of involuntary manslaughter revolving around the death of Michael Jackson, Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor handed out the maximum four-year prison sentence to the satisfaction of prosecutors and will likely mark the last day he’ll ever practice medicine on this earth. He’ll also have to pay restitution to the Jackson estate, which will be ordered at a later date.

Pundits are speculating that the physician will only serve half of his time due to jail overcrowding and due to new California laws that keep non-violent convicted felons out of state prison, he’ll be spending the duration of his sentence in his county jail.
