Dr. Conrad Murray Found Guilty of Involuntary Manslaughter in Michael Jackson Deathby: Posted:
Make no mistake about it. Michael Jackson had a serious drug problem most likely caused by serious personal psychological issues.
But according to a jury, it was the willfully negligent medical care provided by Dr. Conrad Murray in administering a powerful combination of anesthetics, painkillers and anti-anxiety drugs that was the cause of Michael Jackson's death.
Prosecutors had claimed Murray negligently administering a lethal combination of propofol, lorazepam and midazolam to the pop singer, which ultimately resulted in his demise.
The jury agreed, finding that Murray "did unlawfully, and without malice, kill Michael Joseph Jackson." Murray will face up to four years in prison for his role in the singer's death, though given prison overcrowding, he will most likely not face the full term in prison regardless of sentencing.
Murray's final sentencing will occur the morning of November 29th.
Conrad Murray will be remanded to the custody of the L.A. County Sheriff without bail until his sentencing upon the judgement of Michael Pastor, the judge in the case.
