Conrad Murray, the former licensed physician convicted of killing pop icon Michael Jackson has been released from prison after serving two years of his four-year sentence.
The former surgeon and cardiologist was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2011 for administering a fatal dosage of the anesthetic, propofol to the King of Pop to allegedly battle the legendary singer’s chronic insomnia. But because of prison overcrowding, he was let go in the early morning hours of Oct. 28, 2013.
Murray plans for a book deal and reality show and is already seeking to hire a publicist in order to try to change his image. He will also try and get his medical license back in Nevada and block revocation in California.
Murray spent his time in the Los Angeles County Jail writing the balance of a book about his life and his time with Michael Jackson, according to TMZ. Sources close to Murray say that, not surprisingly, he blames Jackson’s addiction and ultimate death on others and justifies his conduct in the treatment that ultimately killed the singer and sent Murray to the slammer.
The former doc has yet to secure a publisher for the book or a producer for a reality show, but in today’s culture, you know there will be a lot of interest in his story.
