Doctor Involved In Michael Jackson Death Avoids Jail In Seperate Case

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- The physician being investigated in Michael Jackson's death has reached an agreement in a separate child support case that will keep him out of jail.

Prosecutors sought an arrest warrant for Dr. Conrad Murray after he failed to appear for previous hearings in the case. He is accused of owing more than $14,000 to a woman and her son.

With Murray in court Monday, his lawyer, Christopher Aaron, paid $700 cash and promised to pay $303 more as part of the deal approved by Clark County District Court Judge Gerald Hardcastle.

Aaron has said Murray has been unable to pay because he had to close his medical practice and move due to threats following Jackson's death June 25.

Murray told investigators he administered propofol as a sleep aid, along with multiple sedatives, in the hours before Jackson died.
