Today a jury found Dr. Conrad Murray guilty in the involuntary manslaughter trail in the 2009 death of Michael Jackson.
Dr. Conrad sat at the table expressionless as the verdict ‘guilty’ was read in a Los Angeles courtroom. The 58-year-old doctor, will be sentenced on November 29, was facing four years in prison, but may have to do only a portion or may even get house arrest. He could also possibly loose his license. His teenage daughter cried as he was handcuffed. The Jackson family and the fans who stood outside of the court building for support-celebrated the jury decision.
According to TMZ, he has been classified as a “keep away prisoner,” which means jail officers will be taking special precautions to keep him safe during his stint in the big house. He’ll be assigned to a single cell and will be assigned an “escort” to keep him safe. Murray wont have any contact with the other inmates.
After the verdict was read, this was posted on Michael Jackson’s website by the co-executors of his estate, John Branca and John McClain. Saying:
“The Estate of Michael Jackson and Michael himself has always believed the jury system works and despite the tragedy that brought about this trial we are in agreement with the jury’s verdict. In this case justice has been served. Michael is missed on a daily basis but his genius and his music will be with us forever. He is ‘the greatest entertainer that has ever lived.’”
