AUSTIN (CBSDFW.COM) - A jail term is in the future for Dr. Conrad Murray after his conviction of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson.

He’s also likely to lose his Texas medical license.

Murray has been based in Houston for several years.  He has had a Texas medical license since 2005.

In April 2010, the Texas Medical Board put a restriction on Murray’s medical license which prohibited him from using Propofol “or any other heavy sedatives.”  It also blocked him from prescribing or administering general anesthetics.

In its order, the TMB said it was enacting the restriction because of the criminal charges against Murray in California.

Murray was convicted of using the sedative Propofol inappropriately, which led to Jackson’s death.

Now that Murray has been convicted, the TMB will probably revoke Murray’s license altogether.  That’s what the board typically does when doctors are convicted of similar charges.
