California state investigators have said that seven doctors who treated Michael Jackson will not face criminal charges relating to his death.

The investigators had been looking into how the doctors prescribed the singer drugs. One of the seven has been referred to the state's medical board for prescribing drugs under an alias, reports BBC News

Conrad Murray, Jacksonp's personal physician, who has pleaded not guilty to the charge of involuntary manslaughter with regards to the death, was not one of the seven doctors involved in the questioning.

Brian Oxman, the lawyer representing Jackson's father Joe Jackson, said he was "very disappointed" with the news. He said: "The misuse of medications by Michael Jackson in the last years of his life was excessive and to fail to bring that to the public eye is ignoring reality."
