Dr. Conrad Murray Found Guilty in Death of Michael Jackson
Cheers erupted outside the courthouse as hundreds of Jackson family supporters heard the guilty verdict. Dr. Conrad Murray, Michael Jackson’s personal physician, has been found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the King of Pop’s death. Murray had been accused of administering a fatal dose of the powerful anesthetic propofol to Jackson in 2009.
He was immedialy cuffed and taken to a holding cell. No bail has been set and a sentencing hearing is set for November 29th. Murray is originally from Grenada and has contacts there so the judge might have thought he was a flight risk. He could end up in jail for a long time.
Murray’s trial began on September 27. The jury, comprised of seven men and five women, began deliberations on Friday, and continued for several additional hours today before reaching its verdict.
