Michael Jackson‘s physician at the time of his death on June 25 2009, Dr Conrad Murray has been found guilty of Involuntary Manslaughter. The verdict was reached after 10 hours of deliberations which began on Friday, Nov. 4.
He now awaits sentencing on November 29, which could be anywhere between probation and 4 years behind bars. For now he is remanded in custody without bail.
MJ died of cardiac and respiratory arrest following an acute Propofol (anesthesia) overdose on June 25, 2009 in his rented Holmby Hills, CA mansion.
According to reports from inside the courtroom, when the verdict was read : Conrad Murray showed no emotion as the judge remanded him to jail immediately without bond and La Toya Jackson screamed out in the quiet courtroom when the verdict was read. Court officers asked her to be silent.
I welcome this verdict, as a licensed medical professional he should know better, he is not some drug dealer off the streets without ethics, he took an oath and he should have stuck by it. Administering Propofol (an anaesthetic that shouldn’t be used outside a surgical environment by an anaesthesiologist) was just sloppy, and calling his mistresses while the man lay in bed dying…c’mon Conrad!
At the end of the day if it wasn’t him it probably would have been some other doctor…let’s face it MJ was an addict…sucks for Conrad Murray though. Now he has no license, no career and he’ll forever be known as the man who killed the world’s greatest entertainer. O ma se o.
