Doctor Conrad Murray was sentenced to four years in jail in a Los Angeles court room this morning. The four year sentence was the maximum allowed under the law for the death of Michael Jackson.

Judge Michael Pastor, in a lengthy statement delivered before sentencing Murray for involuntary manslaughter, said he felt a significant responsibility to determine the appropriate sentence, utilizing his "sense of fairness and decency."

"There are those who feel Dr. Murray is a saint," he said. "There are those who feel Dr. Murray is the devil. He's neither. He's a human being. He stands convicted of the death of another human being."
