Jackson doctor called suicidal after verdict

A probation report says the doctor convicted of killing Michael Jackson was listed as suicidal in jail records before his sentencing. But a spokesman for Dr. Conrad Murray says the physician remains resilient.

The report was released Tuesday after Murray was sentenced to four years behind bars. It states that jail records showed the 58-year-old doctor was classified as “mentally disturbed” and “suicidal.”

The doctor was not interviewed by probation officers.

Murray's spokesman Mark Fierro says a defense attorney visited the cardiologist in jail last week and found him upbeat.

He says the doctor may have been distraught after a jury convicted him of involuntary manslaughter, but that time is behind him.

Sheriff's officials say Murray will serve a little less than two years in a one-man cell.
