Dr. Conrad Murray Found Guilty in Michael Jackson Trial

More than two years after Michael Jackson's death, a verdict was reached today (Mon., Nov. 8th) for Dr. Conrad Murray, Michael's personal physician. 
Jurors found Dr. Conrad Murray guilty of involuntary manslaughter, after a trial that showed Murray as a "reckless caregiver" who administered a lethal dose of a powerful anesthetic that killed the pop star.

Murray was handcuffed and taken into custody without bail until sentencing on Nov. 29. He may also lose his medical license and face up to four years in jail. Murray appeared calm as officials led him out of the courtroom.

It was reported that after the verdict was read, MJ's mother, Katherine Jackson, told The Associated Press, “I feel better now.”

His sister La Toya Jackson told the AP, "Michael was looking over us."

News-Sun reported that crowds erupted outside the courthouse as fans cheered and sang “Beat It” as they held signs that read “guilty” and “killer” and passing motorists honked their horns.
