Michael Jackson’s former personal physician will pay with his time, but not his money.
Dr. Conrad Murray, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the death of the singer, was sentenced to four years in jail in November. However, Murray will not have to make any restitution payments to the Jackson Family.

Prosecutors announced the decision after meeting with attorneys for the Jackson family, his estate and his children, Wells Gabriel said.
