After a six week trial followed by two days of deliberation, the jury announced at 1:07 pm today that Dr. Conrad Murray is guilty of involuntary manslaughter. His date for sentencing has been set for November 29.
The case revolved around the July 2009 death of pop legend Michael Jackson. He was found with a dangerous anesthetic, propofol, in his system which Dr. Murray had prescribed to treat his insomnia. The prosecutors displayed his failure to use proper monitoring devices as well as the administration of such a dangerous drug.
Murray’s team claimed that Jackson had consumed other drugs that morning when Murray’s back was turned, including possibly injecting himself with extra propofol.
Judge Michael Pastor has granted the prosecutor’s affect that Murray be taken into custody without bail between now and his sentencing hearing.
