Conrad Murray Convicted Of Involuntary Manslaughter Of Michael Jackson

 

08 November 2011

Dr. Conrad Murray has been found guilty of the crime of involuntary manslaughter relating to the death of Michael Jackson.

The doctor has professed his innocence throughout accusations that he administered the fatal dose of powerful anaesthetic propofol to Michael Jackson, which cost the pop icon his life on June 25, 2009.

The six-week case was handed over to the 12 person jury to begin deliberations on Thursday afternoon and jurors announced they had reached a decision on Monday.

Jurors voted for a unanimous guilty verdict.

Members of Jackson's family, including parents Joe and Katherine, and siblings LaToya, Janet, Jermaine and Randy, were all present in Los Angeles County Courthouse for the verdict but MJ's three children were not.

In a Twitter.com post before the verdict was announced, a nervous LaToya Jackson wrote, "Verdict is FINALLY IN!!! I'm on my way! I'm shaking uncontrollably!"

Murray, who sat expressionless as the verdict was announced, faces up to four years behind in jail.
