Dr. Conrad Murray sentenced to 4 years in jail

A judge told Dr. Conrad Murray on Tuesday that he should serve four years in the Los Angeles County Jail.

Judge Michael Pastor gave Murray the maximum sentence for involuntary manslaughter. The court did not have the authority to send Murray to state prison, due to recent California legislation.

Murray will get credit for 46 days he has already spent in custody. He also must pay $800 in restitution and must pay other court fees. Further proceedings for restitution sought by Jackson's family will convene January 23, 2012.

On November 7, a jury convicted Murray of killing Michael Jackson. The judge sent him to jail that day, where he has remained.
