Dr. Conrad Murray was found guilty today in the involuntary manslaughter trial for the death of Michael Jackson. His sentencing will happen on November 29th, although the surprising part is that he was hauled off to jail immediately instead of being able to go home until the sentencing. The maximum sentence for his crime is four years although due to overcrowding in California jails he will only have to serve half of that and only at a county jail instead of a state prison. Michael Jackson’s family will get to speak out at the sentencing on the 29th, so it should be very interesting to hear what they have to say. The Los Angeles County DA’s office called Dr. Murray unscrupulous and corrupt, and mentioned how abuse of perscription drugs is now the leading cause of death in America. The verdict gives the Jackson family a sense of justice, altough the sad thing is Dr. Murray was simply enabling Michael Jackson’s odd requests.
