Michael Jackson’s personal physician was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the death of the singer and will now be placed behind bars.
“Dr. Murray abandoned his patient who was trusting him. His patient was vulnerable under those circumstances,” Judge Michael Pastor said, before discussing his ruling of four years — which is the maximum Dr. Murray could have received.
The judge also denied probation to the doctor and said he must serve his term at the Los Angeles County Jail. Dr. Murray will also pay $800 in court fines. He will not have to pay restitution to the Jackson family, even though the prosecutors asked for over $100 million.
A jury found Dr. Murray guilty of involuntary manslaughter after Michael died for a drug overdose in his care.
