Janet Jackson: We Wanted Justice Not Revenge for Michael

Janet Jackson covers up while catching a departing flight at LAX Airport on Friday (December 2) in Los Angeles.

The 45-year-old entertainer will be performing at a sold out show in Tampa, Fla., on Sunday (December 4) before heading to Miami for another concert.

Attorney Brian Panish read a statement on behalf of the Jackson family in court right before Dr. Conrad Murray was given the maximum sentence – four years – in the death of Michael Jackson.

“We are not here to seek revenge. There is nothing you can do today that will bring Michael back,” the statement read.

“We respectfully request that you [the judge] impose a sentence that reminds physicians that they cannot sell their services to the highest bidder and cast aside their Hippocratic oath to do no harm. As we all know from this tragedy, doing so can have devastating results,” it added.
