>>> in los angeles tonight, michael jackson 's former doctor conrad murray was given the maximum sentence, four years. he was found guilty earlier this month in the singer's overdose death. and the superior court judge in the case had some words for the now disgraced physician.
>> not only isn't there any remorse, there's umbrage and outrage on the part of dr. murray against the decedent. dr. murray repeatedly lied, engaged in deceitful misconduct and endeavored to cover up his transgressions. he violated the trust of the medical community, of his colleagues, and of his patients. and he has absolutely no sense of remorse, absolutely no sense of fault. and is, and remains dangerous.
>> by the way, california's prison overcrowding problem means murray will probably only serve less than two years behind bars in the l.a. county jail. still, jackson's family said after the sentencing, they were please with the result.
