Doctor convicted in Jackson death leaves prison

DHAKA: Michael Jackson’s personal physician, convicted of manslaughter for administering a lethal dose of anaesthetic to the pop singer, was released from a Los Angeles prison on Monday after serving half of his four-year sentence.

Conrad Murray was released to his representatives, Los Angeles County Sheriff spokesman Steve Whitmore said shortly after Murray left the county jail.

The release came under a California state plan to reduce prison overcrowding, reports The Straits Times.

Murray’s six-week trial grabbed global attention after ‘Billie Jean’ singer Jackson, preparing for a series of comeback concerts in London, died unexpectedly in 2009 at age 50.

Reporters waited outside the jail for Murray, but he was whisked out through a back exit away from view.

A few Jackson fans were also were present, one playing music from his 1982 album ‘Thriller’, the top-selling album of all time with more than 50 million copies sold.
