....GUILTY of involuntary manslaughter!!! WOW....this is a complete shock to me. I did not expect this ruling.
Dr. Murray was pretty much expressionless when the verdict was read. Was he in shock?!?! I never once believed that Dr. Murray intended on "Killing" Michael Jackson, but let's face it....he damn sure didn't do anything to prevent it from happening. This is what happens when celebs have people around them on payroll who will give and do anything to keep the $$$ rolling in. Hopefully this is a lesson to many of you celebs out there.Dr. Conrad Murray was convicted Monday of involuntary manslaughter in the drug-overdose death of singer Michael Jackson after a jury deliberated for two days. Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor handed the case to the seven-man, five-woman jury Thursday after closing arguments by prosecutor David Walgren and lead defense lawyer Ed Chernoff. Over nearly six weeks of testimony, jurors heard from 33 prosecution witnesses and 16 defense witnesses. More than 340 exhibits were available in the jury room as the panel mulled a verdict. Jackson, 50, died on June 25, 2009, of an overdose of the surgical anesthetic propofol, aggravated by effects of the sedative lorazepam. Murray, 58, was charged with a single count of involuntary manslaughter. He pleaded not guilty.
The Houston cardiologist, 58, faces a sentence of up to four years in prison. He could also lose his medical license. He also was remanded into custody without bail pending sentencing on Nov. 29th.
