On Monday, the trial regarding Michael Jackson’s death ended. The jury has reached a verdict. They found Dr. Conrad Murray guilty of involuntary manslaughter. The accused has listened the verdict with a stoned face and was very calm. He was handcuffed and taken out of the courtroom. He remained in custody, without possibility to bail out, as he was considered a risk to society. He will appear in court on November 29 to receive his sentence. He is facing up to 4 years in prison and the withdrawal of his medical license. If sent to prison, he will not serve his time in the state federal prison, but in the Los Angeles County jail. However, there is the possibility of probation.
The first to enjoy the news were The King’s family. His mother told the press that she feels better now and La Toya was confident that Michael was looking after them all this time.
Outside the courtroom, the crowd that gathered to support the Jackson family and to ask that justice be done, burst into applause, screams and tears of joy when hearing the verdict. They started screaming “Justice! Justice! Justice” and waving their cardboards saying “Justice for Michael” and Dr. Murray is a Killer”.
