New details on a story that broke a little more than an hour ago a California judge not holding back.
Michael Jackson's former doctor -- the maximum punishment the law permits.
He was of course convicted by a jury of supplying the King -- Pop with a lethal dose of -- -- leading to his death in 2000 night.
As to sentencing in this case the request for probation is denied.
The court imposes the -- term.
Four years in prison and in this case.
And that is the least of what the judge said today Adam Housley live outside of -- -- Adam we're hearing from the Jackson family and boy that judge certainly let us know how he felt today.
Actually affect the defense team -- -- a short time ago the defense team said they felt the judges openly hostile towards Doctor Murray.
That comes as Katherine Jackson said to one of the cameras as he walked out of the courthouse she felt the judge was extremely fair.
Educating -- record saying she was the sentence could be more than just the four years which is mandated by law.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- We also to sit here look -- the -- he went through really detailed account of why he felt he should give.
Our doctor -- the the -- to prosecute to the fullest extent it will -- -- I think Doctor -- so reckless that I believe he is quote a danger to the community.
That's coming from the judge himself we did not hear -- what a member of the Jackson family know once it up there and part of the courtroom -- that anything we didn't get a statement from the Jackson family.
Which was read by their attorney here's part of that.
The Bible reminds us that men can not do justice.
They can only seek justice.

And that is although we can ask for here.
Again that was just part of the statement read by the attorney of the Jackson family in front of the courtroom the prosecutor -- lay out the reason why he felt the people -- should be.
Given to doctor -- the defense team of course -- argue they should be given probation the judge said no way.
There will be a restitution hearing in January -- and we just heard also from the sheriff here in town saying that.
At the most doctor -- will only serve two years which is the normal for someone like him to go -- -- 50% of the time nuisance to you man.
A result the judge clearly was upset about.
Adam thank you and the judge actually said that the fact that Michael Jackson participated in this one of these drugs is no excuse he said Doctor Murray -- walked away as countless other.
