Jackson's family calls for stiff sentence for doc
Jackson family calls for stiff sentence for doctor convicted of singer's death
By The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) ' A lawyer for Michael Jackson's family has told a judge sentencing the doctor who caused the singer's death that the family is not seeking revenge but wants a stiff sentence that serves as a warning to opportunistic doctors.

Attorney Brian Panish did not specifically request the maximum term of four years in jail for Dr. Conrad Murray, but said Tuesday the cardiologist should be punished in a way that reminds physicians that they cannot sell their services to the highest bidder.

Panish represents family matriarch Katherine Jackson and the singer's three children in a civil lawsuit.

The statement by Panish at a sentencing hearing included elements representing the views of Jackson's children, parents and siblings.

Murray was convicted on Nov. 7 of involuntary manslaughter.
