Michael Jackson’s doctor found guilty

Los Angeles, Nov 8 (Calcutta Tube / IBNS): Pop icon Michael Jackson’s doctor was found guilty on Monday of involuntary manslaughter, after a trial that lasted for more than a month, convicting him of administering a lethal dose of a powerful anesthetic that killed the pop star in 2009.
A stone-faced 58-year-old Dr. Conrad Murray, showing little reaction, was led away in handcuffs after the jury in Los Angeles reached the unanimous verdict following a deliberation that lasted less than nine hours, even as many fans gathered outside the court cheered.
Murray, a Houston cardiologist whom Jackson had hired to act as his personal pharmaceutical dispensary, faces a sentence of up to four years in prison and could also lose his medical license.
Murray pleaded not guilty to giving a sleep-depived Jackson, known as the King of Pop, a fatal dose of the powerful anesthetic propofol — normally used in surgery — that was ruled the main cause of his death at the age of 50.
