Jackson’s doctor released from jail after 2 years

– The former doctor convicted of causing Michael Jackson’s death has been released from jail.

Jail records confirmed Conrad Murray’s release Monday and the sheriff’s office said he left a downtown Los Angeles jail at 12:01 a.m.

The former cardiologist served less than two years in jail after being convicted in 2011 of involuntary manslaughter for Jackson’s June 2009 death. The pop superstar died after receiving a lethal dose of the anesthetic propofol, which Murray was giving Jackson as a sleep aid.

Murray’s medical licenses remain suspended or revoked in three states where he previously practiced medicine.

Murray had been sentenced to serve four years behind bars, but a change in California law allowed his incarceration time to be significantly cut down.
