Michael Jackson‘s former personal doctor Conrad Murray has been found guilty of manslaughter, and is facing up to four years in prison.
The court’s decision marks the end to a stressful six weeks for the Jackson clan, who are no doubt celebrating Murray‘s incarceration.
He is to be sentenced formally on November 29, and today’s jury took eight hours to come to its final decision.
As he was handcuffed and left the courtroom, his mother told him she loved him, and his expression was one of pure shock and rage.
Judge Michael Pastor said: “The end result was the death of a human being. That fact demonstrates that the public should be protected. Dr. Murray’s reckless conduct poses a demonstrable risk to the safety of the public.”
Michael‘s sister LaToya and mother Katherine couldn’t hide their emotion when they heard the unanimous verdict, and both began to cry.
