According to the Huffington Post on Oct. 28, Conrad Murray, the physician who was in prison for administering a drug dose that killed Michael Jackson, was released after serving only two of his four-year sentence.
Murray, 60, who served as Jackson's personal physician was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2009 after the coroner determined the iconic pop singer died of acute propofol intoxication. That drug is a powerful surgical anesthetic that Conrad was using to treat Jackson's insomnia.
Why was Murray released two years early?
Murray was sentenced in 2011 to four years in prison; however, he was released two years early for good behavior.
In an interview with the "Today" show, Murray said:
"I will restart my life and, God willing, I will be a model to show the world that despite adversity, and when bad things happen to good people, they can restart their life and succeed."
To make sure that he never practice medicine again, Murray's medical license was revoked. His attorneys have already filed petitions in Texas to have it reinstated.
After Murray' release, death threats have been reported.
