Michael Jackson's doctor Conrad Murray sentenced to 4 years in prison


     Michael Jackson's doctor  Conrad Murray was sentenced to four years in prison today and denied probation for involuntary manslaughter in the singer's death.
   Judge Michael Pastor called Murray's treatment of Jackson a "cycle of horrible medicine" and "medicine madness."
   Jackson's parents and siblings Jermaine, LaToya and Randy were present at today's sentencing, 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.
    In the statement, Michael Jackson's children told the Los Angeles court that they lost their "father, best friend, and playmate" when the singer died, but stressed they were not seeking "revenge".

    Murray has  been moved to LA county to serve his jailtime.
