Doctor Conrad Murray Sentenced

BREAKING: Doctor Conrad Murray sentenced to four years in prison.

The doctor convicted of killing Michael Jackson has been sentenced to the maximum term of four years behind bars.

Dr. Conrad Murray was sentenced Tuesday, three weeks after a
jury convicted the cardiologist of involuntary manslaughter. The
judge chastised him for a "horrific violation of trust" in caring
for Jackson.

Prosecutors had urged the judge to sentence the doctor to the
maximum, arguing his treatment of Jackson with a powerful
anesthetic ended the life of the King of Pop and left his three
children without a father.

Attorneys for the 58-year-old Murray argued that probation was a
more appropriate sentence, given his lack of a criminal history and
the fact he will lose his medical license.

Murray could serve half of the four years because of overcrowding in California jails.
