Michael Jackson's former doctor Conrad Murray was released from jail Monday after serving two years of a four-year sentence for the late pop icon's death in 2009, officials said.
Murray, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2011 for giving Jackson the drug that killed him, left the Men's Central Jail in Los Angeles shortly after midnight.
The 60-year-old medic evaded a group of hecklers outside the jail. His lawyer, Valerie Wass, slammed the Jackson supporters, saying: "This group of fans isn't respecting [Jackson's] legacy," according to the LA Times.
