LOS ANGELES, (Reuters) - Michael Jackson's former doctor, convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the singer's death, has been asked by the California Medical Board to return his license.
The board has officially notified Dr. Murray that his license has been suspended, effectively banning him from practicing in the state, TMZ reports. The penalty is par for the course anytime a doctor is convicted of a felony.
Michael Jackson's doctor Conrad Murray was sentenced to four years in prison today for involuntary manslaughter in the singer's death. Judge Michael Pastor defined Murray's treatment of Jackson a "cycle of horrible medicine" and "medicine madness."
Jackson's parents and siblings Jermaine, LaToya and Randy were present in court, but did not speak, instead allowing family friend and attorney Brian Panish to read a statement on behalf of the Jackson's three children and family.
