Dr. Conrad Murray has been sentenced to 4 years in jail with his request for probation denied! The doctor, convicted of manslaughter for the 2009 wrongful death of Michael Jackson, but will be credited the 42 days he’s already served.
However, under new California law, Murray will not serve time in prison. He’ll serve his time in L.A. County Jail, of which, he’ll end up serving half the sentence.
Judge Michael Pastor also ordered Dr. Murray to pay “appropriate restitution” to the Estate and to MJ’s kids. As for an amount? Set to be determined at a later date. But Murray will pay an $800 fine a $30 court security fee, and a $40 criminal conviction assessment.
