The verdict against Dr. Conrad Murray marked the latest chapter in one of pop culture’s most shocking tragedies: the death of the King of Pop on the reborn of the singer’s greatly promoted comeback concerts. The nearly six-week involuntary manslaughter trial against former Michael Jackson doctor Conrad Murray ended Monday afternoon on November 7 with a guilty verdict. Murray sat motionlessly as the verdict was read and was handcuffed and taken into custody without bail until sentencing November 29. He appeared calm as officials led him out of the courtroom.
“Dr. Murray’s reckless conduct in this case poses a demonstrable risk to the safety of the public” if he remains free on bond, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Judge Michael Pastor said. “This is a crime where the end result was the death of a human being,” added Michael Pastor. “That factor demonstrates rather dramatically that the public should be protected.” During the case, prosecutors attempted to show that Murray set the stage for tragedy by also failing to use proper monitoring equipment and devices to help Jackson breathe under heavy anesthesia. Criminal defense attorney Mike Cavalluzzi stated his expert opinion regarding Murray’s conviction: “This is a very fair verdict, mainly because it isn’t a verdict that calls for any intent or any malice on the part of Dr. Murray. This is about criminal negligence, gross negligence on his part, and I think it’s a fair verdict.”Read also
