Conrad Murray, the former doctor who was found guilty of causing Michael Jackson’s death, has been released from jail after serving less than two years for his medical actions, according to a CBS report on Monday.
Murray was released, and the former Jackson doctor left the jail in downtown Los Angeles at 12:01 a.m. according to Los Angeles jail’s records.
Murray, formerly a cardiologist, served less than two years in the jail after he was convicted of involuntary manslaughter of the famed singer and songwriter in June of 2009. Jackson died on June 25, 2009 after being given a lethal dose of the anesthetic propofol. The incarcerated doctor was giving the drug to Jackson as a sleeping aid.
From the court proceedings, Murray’s medical licenses are still suspended or revoked in three states where he had practiced medicine in the past. Though the doctor had been sentenced to four years of time in jail, there was a change in the laws in California recently which allowed him to get out much earlier than sentenced.
It has been reported that Murray is determined to fight to get his right to practice medicine again by taking legal steps to get his medical license back.
