Judge throws the book at Conrad and says he is reckless and dangerous….
TMZ reports: Judge Michael Pastor threw the book at Dr. Conrad Murray, sentencing him to 4 YEARS IN PRISON. But Murray will not spend a single day in prison because of a new California law. He’ll serve his time in L.A. County Jail. And in jail, at most Murray will only serve half the sentence.
The Judge ruled Murray must pay an $800 fine, a $30 court security fee, and a $40 criminal conviction assessment.
Judge Pastor said, “There are those who feel Dr. Murray is a saint. There are those who feel he’s the devil. He is neither. He’s a human being.” The judge also said it’s irrelevant to him that Michael might have met this fate with some other doctor. The fact is, Pastor said, Michael Jackson died because of the actions of … Dr. Murray.” Though he was impressed with what Murray had accomplished in his life he called his actions of medication Jackson ”a cycle of horrible medicine” and that Murray engaged in a recurring, continuous pattern of deceit and lies.”
