A few days after complaining about his treatment behind bars, Dr. Conrad Murray's prayers have been answered. Murray, who said last week that he believed he was going to die in L.A. County Jail, received a new set of clean clothes, a blanket, and was even taken to the roof of the facility to get fresh air.

The doctor, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson, complained that he only had one new pair of underwear a week, and received fresh air just once a month.

Murray is expected to serve a little less than two years in prison due to overcrowding in the state's prison system. He was initially sentenced to a maximum of four years.
