Dr. Conrad Murray got a 4-year term of imprisonment in the drug overdose death of Michael Jackson, says the Los Angeles Times. Judge Michael Pastor lambasted his treatment as “money for medicine madness.” Pastor expressed shock over the doctor’s lack of remorse and criticized him for recently televised comments suggesting that the singer had “entrapped” him.
“He has absolutely no sense of remorse, absolutely no sense of fault and is and remains dangerous,” Pastor said. Under a new California law, Murray would serve time in a county jail rather than state prison. The most time he would be jailed is two years. District Attorney Steve Cooley said he is concerned that Murray might spend less time in jail if the sheriff is forced to release inmates early because of overcrowding.
