Sheriff’s spokeswoman Nicole Nishida said Dr. Conrad Murray will be housed in a one-man cell and kept away from other prisoners. She said the doctor’s involuntary manslaughter sentence is automatically being cut in half due to state laws.

Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor sentenced Murray this afternoon to the maximum four-year term after delivering blistering remarks about the physician’s treatment of Jackson.

Pastor acknowledged that the exact amount of time the 59-year-old Murray will be incarcerated is beyond his control.
