Conrad Murray Hopes To Be Home For The Holidays

Wishful thinking? Not really…

Conrad Murray got the maximum sentence yesterday, with a sentence of 4 years behind bars.

But, he could get out as early as Christmas to serve the rest of his time doing house arrest.

With the overcrowding of California jails and him being considered a non-violent felon, it looks like Murray is eligible to live out his sentence comfortably in his own home.

Hmm, we didn't know that California correctional facilities can pull a Lindsay Lohan on what some people would consider a convicted murderer.

A source says:

"Dr. Murray's lawyers are actually relieved that Judge Pastor didn't sentence him to community service, they didn't want him doing manual labor at the morgue, like Lindsay Lohan is doing. That would have been an absolute nightmare for him, as he would certainly be mocked, and it wouldn't have been safe for him to be picking up trash on the freeway or cleaning up graffiti. Judge Pastor actually did Murray a favor by maxing him out."

Oh, how nice! Because that's what we were really worried about - whether or not the judge was giving him the better way out.

As for now, looks like it's up to Sheriff Lee Baca to make that decision. The source adds:

"The Sheriff will determine when Dr. Murray will be released on house arrest. Dr. Murray is hoping that he will be released by Christmas. His lawyers have told him that is a real possibility."

Deputy District Attorney David Walgren feels he should serve the full sentence, saying:

"I think he certainly deserves the full weight of the punishment and he certainly deserves the full four years…How much time he actually serves at the end of the day will be up to the sheriff."

Ugh. Does Conrad really deserve to get off that easily??

    Kill someone and still be home for Christmas. Only in California. Considering his sentence is four years I would hope he serves more than a few weeks in an actual jail cell.

    Wow! what a shame! someone is convicted of a crime and because California is already over-crowded, u get to sit on your comfortable couch! I guess there's no REAL punishment in California….

    The arrogance of this man is ridiculous. He is a true SOCIOPATH..100% The judge hit the nail on the head when he said that Conrad Murray seems to be offended at Michael Jackson dying and ruining Conrad's life. FIRST CLASS PIECE OF SH*T… TBH the jail thing is whatever now, the most important thing is that he looses his medical license permanently!!!!!! Michael Jackson was the most famous person on planet Earth (like it or not) wherever Conrad goes…he will be known as "the guy who killed Michael Jackson"..Karma WILL get him eventually.

    Geez Mario, make sure your facts are correct. Conrad Murray didn't murder anyone, he was convicted of involuntary manslaughter, NOT murder. Big difference.

    You've got to be kidding. Why not ship them to other states where jails have room?
    Sniff sniff. Smells like two tiered justice again.
