Dr. Conrad Murray, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in Michael Jackson’s 2009 death, was sentenced Tuesday to four years behind bars. He will also lose his medical license.



Judge Michael Pastor imposed the maximum sentence for Murray, but Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Steve Whitmore says his sentence is automatically reduced to two years under Assembly Bill 109. Murray, however, will be required to serve all of his halved sentence, minus 47 days he has already served.

The prosecution has also requested that Murray pay more than $101,000,000 in restitution. A hearing will take place on Jan. 23 to determine how much he will owe to Jackson’s estate.

“It should be very clear that medical experiments will not be tolerated, and Mr. Jackson was an experiment,” Pastor told the court room.
