Murray was Michael Jackson's personal doctor when the pop star died from acute propafol intoxication on June 25, 2009. A few days after Jackson's death, Murray admitted to police that he administered the surgical anesthesia to the singer on a daily basis. Murray now awaits sentencing and is scheduled to appear in court again on Tuesday, November 29th.

Judge Michael Pastor denied the defense's request to allow Murray to be released on bail until sentencing, saying that Murray is now a felon and a danger to the public. Murray was remanded to the sheriff's custody.

Murray could serve a maximum of two years in the LA County jail, but TMZ's Harvey Levin speculated that Murray may serve some time on house arrest.
