Doctor Is Guilty in Michael Jackson's Death

| No Comments

Dr. Conrad Murray, Michael Jackson's physician, was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter on Monday for Jackson's death nearly two and a half years ago.

The jury reached the verdict after 22 days of testimony, 50 witnesses, and two days of deliberation, the New York Times reported.

The main focus of the trial was whether Dr. Murray failed to fulfill his duty as Jackson's physician, or if he was recklessly performing criminal negligence.

Prosecutors aimed to portray Dr. Murray as an incompetent doctor while Dr. Murray's lawyers painted him as a medical angel full of mercy.

Dr. Murray faces up to four years in prison and the potential of losing his medical license, the Detroit Free Press reported.

Jackson's parents and siblings' only reactions to the verdict was that they were "very happy" and a thumbs-up.
