13. Michael Jackson's Doctor Conrad Murray Jailed (November)
In November, Conrad Murray, the doctor looking after Michael Jackson when he died, was jailed for four years for the star's involuntary manslaughter. The judge who delivered the sentence told the doctor that he had "abandoned his patient, who was trusting him". Michael Jackson died on the eve of his much anticipated comeback shows, which were due to take place over 50 nights at London's O2 Arena.
