It will be the cardiologist's first courtroom appearance since he was convicted Nov. 7 for giving Jackson a lethal overdose of the anesthetic propofol.

Prosecutors are urging the maximum sentence of four years in prison, plus restitution. Defense attorneys say the physician should be placed on probation, adding he will continue to be ostracized for his role in Jackson's death. 

It's unclear if any Jackson family members will speak during the proceedings.
