Michael Jackson’s former physician, Conrad Murray, 58, has been found guilty of one count of manslaughter. The jury reached the verdict after 10 hours of deliberations which began on Friday, Nov. 4.
Murray faces a sentence of up to 4 years in prison. He could receive probation if Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor decides that Murray is a defendant with no prior criminal record, a circumstance that might mitigate in favor of probation.
Jackson died of cardiac and respiratory arrest following an acute Propofol (anesthesia) overdose on June 25, 2009 in his rented Holmby Hills, CA mansion.
La Toya Jackson screamed out in the quiet courtroom when the verdict was read. Court officers asked her to be silent.
Conrad Murray showed no emotion as the judge remanded him to jail immediately without bond.
