Conrad Murray Verdict 2011: Michael Jackson Trial Ruling – Was it Fair?
Conrad Murray has been found guilty of involuntary manslaughter of pop King Michael Jackson and the news has left some people shocked and others relieved.
When it was announced – 20 minutes after the verdict was scheduled to be read – that Dr. Conrad Murray was found guilty, many members of Jackson’s family who were in the courtroom gasped with relief. For Conrad Murray, however, it was his worst case scenario becoming a reality.
Murray spent a significant amount of his life leading up to Michael’s death as his live-in physician. Michael considered Murray a good friend and Murray considered Michael the same. Then, tragedy struck and Murray’s worst nightmare quickly became a real-life concern: he could be charged for involuntary manslaughter in the death of the world’s single most popular musician.
In the courtroom on behalf of Michael today was his mother Katherine Jackson, his brother Randy and his sister Latoya. Just outside the courtroom stood his brother Jermaine and his sister Rebbie, waiting desperately for the verdict.
When it was announced, all members of the family seemed to be overjoyed with the news.
Jermaine told reporters that “justice was served” while Katherine told the media that she’s “very happy with the verdict.”
Latoya “let out an audible yell in the courtroom” when the verdict was read (according to RadarOnline) while Rebbie told reporters outside that she is “happy he was found guilty.”
All members of the family seemed to be overjoyed with the news.
The question is, if Michael were still here, would he be?
Dr. Murray will be sentenced on November 29.
