Dr. Conrad Murray has been found guilty of one count of involuntary manslaughter after administering a fatal dose of the powerful anesthetic propofol to King of Pop Michael Jackson back in June of 2009.
Murray sat stone-faced and showed little reaction at the verdict. The jury deliberated for less than nine hours. Murray, 58, faces a sentence of up to four years in prison and will most likely lose his medical license. He is due back for sentencing on November 29th. Murray was taken immediately into custody without bail.
The seven men and five women of the jury came to their verdict today after deliberating for three days. During the six-week trial, prosecutors depicted Dr. Murray as a reckless physician who abandoned Jackson while he was under the effects of the powerful anesthetic propofol.
Murray did not testify during the trial but previously acknowledged to police that he gave Jackson propofol and other sedatives on the morning the singer died.
