Michael Jackson's doctor released from jail after 2 years
LOS ANGELES, CA -- The former doctor convicted of causing Michael Jackson's death has been released from jail.
Jail records confirm Conrad Murray's release this morning and the sheriff's office says he left a downtown Los Angeles jail shortly after midnight.
The former cardiologist served less than two years in jail after being convicted in 2011 of involuntary manslaughter for Jackson's June 2009 death. The pop superstar died after receiving a lethal dose of the anesthetic propofol, which Murray was giving Jackson as a sleep aid.
Murray's medical licenses remain suspended or revoked in three states where he previously practiced medicine.
Murray had been sentenced to serve four years behind bars, but a change in California law allowed his incarceration time to be significantly cut down.
