Dr. Conrad Murray, Michael Jackson’s personal physician, was found guilty by a Los Angeles jury of involuntary manslaughter, and now faces prison time when he’s sentenced the judge in the case. Earlier today, it was noted that the jury had reached a verdict, but then a wait of around two hours ensued before the courtroom was reconvened and the verdict read.
The trial lasted for 33 days against the doctor who was paid $150,000 a month by Michael Jackson for offering him private medical care in his home. However, the jury found that the doctor failed Michael Jackson, causing his death beyond any reasonable doubt. For his part, the doctor appeared emotionless in court as the verdict was read, no doubt disappointed that his defense team was unable to convince the jury of his claimed innocence.
Certainly, the doctor will now lose his medical license as well as face time in prison. It has to be a disappointing end to a career for a doctor that once served Hollywood celebrities such as Michael Jackson.
