Dr. Conrad Murray -- Medical License Suspended in Texas

The Texas Medical Board suspended the license of Dr. Conrad Murray on Friday ... almost three years after the death of Michael Jackson

Murray is currently serving a 4 year sentence for involuntary manslaughter. The board in Texas did not need to seek an emergency suspension of Murray's license after his conviction, a board spokesperson said, since he was behind bars and not a threat to patients in Texas. 

The board spokesperson told the Houston Chronicle, "This achieves the same effect as license revocation."

Murray is seeking an appeal of his conviction.
