LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Dr. Conrad Murray was being housed Tuesday in a medical section of the Twin Towers Correctional Facility, where he was being kept away from the general jail population for his own safety, the Sheriff’s
Department reported.

A jury of seven men and five women deliberated for less than two days before convicting the celebrity doctor in Jackson’s 2009 death.

Jurors had 300 pieces of evidence to consider after listening to 49 witnesses and complex medical testimony during the six-week trial.

Prosecutors argued that Murray acted in a criminally negligent manner after giving Jackson a powerful dose of the anesthetic propofol as a sleep aid.

The defense, however, maintained that Jackson took a deadly dose of propofol when Murray left his bedroom hours before the singer’s death.

Murray, faces up to four years in prison when he’s sentenced on Nov. 29, but Judge Michael Pastor ordered him to be remanded immediately.

Pastor, who said Murray “poses a demonstrable risk to the safety of the public,” ordered him to be held at the Los Angeles County Jail without bond.

Murray will also lose his medical license as the result of his conviction.

“Michael’s spirit will be with us in the court room and he will make sure the right verdict is made.” Jackson’s sister La Toya tweeted before the verdict was read. “Michael is watching over us,” Latoya said as she left the courtroom. She later tweeted, “VICTORY!!!!!! Thank you EVERYONE for your love and support! It will ALWAYS be appreciated!”

Inside the courtroom, there was a shriek when the verdict was read, though it wasn’t clear who it was. Murray sat stone-faced and showed little reaction. He appeared calm as officials led him out of the courtroom in handcuffs.

Members of the Jackson family wept quietly after the guilty verdict was read.

Meanwhile, a crowd erupted in cheers outside, and some chanted “guilty” repeatedly. Fans also celebrated by dancing to the late singer’s music.

KNX 1070’s Pete Demetriou reports.

Following the verdict, District Attorney Steve Cooley spoke to the media.

“We are gratified the jury saw the overwhelming evidence in this case… that Dr. Murray is guilty of involuntary manslaughter,” Cooley said.

He later added, “Finally, we want to extend our personal sympathies to the Jackson family, especially to (Jackson’s children) Prince, Paris and Blanket.”

Defense attorneys had no immediate comment after the verdict.

John Branca and John McClain, co-executors of The Estate of Michael Jackson released the following statement after the verdict was read:

“The Estate of Michael Jackson and Michael himself has always believed the jury system works and despite the tragedy that brought about this trial we are in agreement with the jury’s verdict. In this case Justice has been served. Michael is missed on a daily basis but his genius and his music will be with us forever. He is ‘the greatest entertainer that has ever lived.'”

    And what concrete evidence is there that Jackson was a pedophile? NONE, idiot. He was a child. He never had a childhood. He was weird, no doubt. A pedophile? If you don’t have CONCRETE proof, you should shut your mouth. SHAME ON YOU.

    1. TheTRUTH says:


    2. Happydots says:

      Anyone who has someone else’s SON sleep in HIS bed is a pedophile regardless of whether there was touching or not. That’s just sick.

    3. Ben Dover says:

      OK. So change that to…

      Guilty of killing the grown man who like to lay in bed with very young boys.

    4. John says:

      He was a nice man and he was very nice to thos little boys.

      @Jose – Lay of the Jesus juice, plz

    7. Ben says:

      That’s right, this is America and we do not need proof that Michael Jackson is a pedophile, we do not need proof that Obama was born in the US and we refuse to accept that there is proof that Bill Clinton lied.
      Whether Michael Jackson was a pedophile or not, this story is about the verdict in just another circus trial.
      For the morons, here is a definition of pedophile, “As a medical diagnosis, pedophilia (or paedophilia) is defined as a psychiatric disorder in adults or late adolescents (persons age 16 or older) typically characterized by a primary or exclusive sexual interest in prepubescent children (generally age 13 years or younger, though onset of puberty may vary). “

    8. Sha Sene says:

      ONly the children he molested that’s the proof

      Do you skip over the first sentence of a news article frequently?

      1. scg says:

        The earlier article said they reached a verdict and it would be released at 1:00p.m.PST. Then at 1 they changed the first line of the article.

    4. Sha Sene says:

      There is no such “race” as hispanic, it only means your ancestors came from somewhere that spoke spanish.

      ALL Spaniards are white, not brown

      1. rich says:

        too bad he’s not obama’s doctor

      2. rich says:

        You are 100% correct Sha Sene. There is no race as Hispanic according to white man eugenicists. All hispanics are Caucasian. They are call white mexicans. Thats why the old cowboys bartered and hung out with them just like clint eastwood in his movies

    5. richdont'care says:

      it is a true story of injustice is what it is. So it’s good that the public sees this, however, as you can see… the public is a zoo… so hold this dr guy responsible for that loser pig faced drug addict child molester. No respect for this clown. He’s a sicko. Give this dr. the nobel peace price for saving kids. no role model here except for the doc. good luck doc you’re another prisoner slave is all that’s goin on here and they’re gonna split your money.

      1. Astonished says:

        Be that as it may. Jackson may have been all those things, and spoiled by his fame to boot, but what does that make a phalandering adulterous, lying, avaristic person like Murray? No one deserves to die in this fashion. As a doctor Murry swore on the Hippacratic Oath to “do no harm” and what mikes this worse is that Jackson put him in a position of trust over his entire family! Murray abused that trust (along with a whole lot of moral issues) in a most careless and cavalier way.

        Nope, I think that justice was done here. Once Murray is released from jail he should NEVER, EVER be allowed to administer care of any kind to anything that has a lifecycle.

      Should have gave the good doctor a medal for offing the pedophile drug addict.

  3. Eric Sherwood says:

    HoseB, the argument isn’t whether Jackson molested children. That has no bearing on the case in a court of law. I have no idea if Jackson did that or not. What’s at stake here is whether or not Murray gave Jackson that lethal dose.

    1. HoseA says:

      He killed a pedophile…street justice sort of…

    3. AnimalFarm says:

      Jackson is responsible for his own drug addiction and his own death. He was a sick freak. Who in the hell takes anesthetics as sleeping aids? It sure wasn’t forced on him. This doctor was paid by Jackson to be his drug provider, but the real responsibility lies with the freak Michael Jackson

  4. Dave says:

    Why didn’t they have pens?

  5. Justice says:

    The Creepo Jacko killed himself because he couldn’t take the pain of detoxing from his opiate addiction?

      Moron “Justice” Jackson was addicted to benzodiazepines (Valium)

    2. d says:

      Yes. and he was a grown man! I am so tired of the ” it is your fault because i have had a rough life” BS Michael was talented and compassionate…but he has had a death wish for years. Love how his “family” takes no responsibility for his mental anguish. This Dr. needs probation and MJ’s familiy needs help! sorry… May MJ RIP. and his children thrive.

  6. karl anglin says:

    Dr. Murray is not the only one to be blamed.
    There are others who wanted Jackson dead
    to obtain his lucrative songwriting catalog
    and profit from it. Joeseph Jackson said of
    his son, “He’s worth more dead than alive.”

  7. Uh oh says:

    I see the tr0lls are out in full force this fine Monday.

    Talking like a simpleton on newspaper forums should be a crime, though, in which case, you’d get life.

      Too bad. The verdict is in, you are out-voted.

  9. Mike_88 says:

    If he died getting a rhinoplasty would they sue that doctor for not saying “No!”?

  10. Pepe Crow says:


    1. Lo says:

      Honestly…. Who DOESN’T want to kill his boss? And why would the Jacksons–who are multimillionaires, especially now that Michael is dead–care about some trifling doctor’s income? This case has more to do with finding justice and whether or not that doctor overprescribed and accidentally killed Jackson.

      1. BARRY'S CT. SSN 042-68-4425 says:

    2. noneoff says:

      Regardless of whether Michael Jackson might have injected himself with Propofol or not, I feel the Conrad Murray is still responsible for his death. Both defense and prosecution witnesses have stated that they would absolutely not have given Michael Jackson Propofol in a bedroom environment. They agree that Dr. Murray should not have left Jackson alone. They also agree that Dr. Murray did not have the proper medical equipment and backup personal to help in an emergency.

      1. Cliff Claven says:

        I believe Jackson’s FATHER is responsible for Michael Jackson’s Death…

      2. j gead says:

        http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory?id=14136119 huh a ie pill writer only gets 4 years , get out in 2 years , a average home buglary 4 instance is 4 year sentance . neglect and someone dies , out in less than 2 years . huh

    3. Missy says:

      “Involuntary Manslaughter” is not the same as “killing” even though the results are still the same: someone is dead through the fault of someone else. Legally, the difference between 4 years in jail or the death penalty all boils down to motive. Yes. Do I believe he was deliberatly trying to end MJ’s life? Do I think Dr. Murray was responsible for MJ’s death due to gross negligence and incompetence ON THE DAY he died? Yes, definitely because Murray was a licensened physician.

      I hope Murray’s found guilty because I believe “involuntary manslaughter” is exactly what he did. Whether MJ was a pedophile or not should have legally been decided in trials a few years ago, but each time they failed to do so. He probably was, but one thing we should NOT forget is that on that day, MJ was still a father to 3 children who loved him dearly, and two of them had to witness his death first-hand.

      Question: how does someone become a cardiologist and not know how to properly perform CPR (which should be done on a hard surface like a floor, not a bed that puts up no resistance to chest pressure)? I believe Murray’s own words were that he had “never” done CPR before. Possible? I guess so. Probable? Hard to imagine.

      1. Missy says:

        Correction to my comment: “Do I believe he was deliberatly trying to end MJ’s life?” sould have said, “Do I believe he was deliberatly trying to end MJ’s life? No.”.

    4. In the O.C. says:

      Doesn’t anyone on this thread understand the difference between INVOLUNTARY MANSLAUGHTER and MANSLAUGHTER? The Prosecution never based their case on Murray INTENTIONALLY having given too much Propofal, only that he DID through GROSS NEGLIGENCE. Additionally, there is no evidence of someone trying to “murder” Jackson for his music, catalogues, etc. Michael Jackson hired an INCOMPETENT, NEGLIGENT live-in physician, who DIDN’T DO HIS JOB, and when the chips were down, FAILED MISERABLY. That’s what this is all about.

      1. Ralph says:

        I think Jackson hired the exact kind of doctor he wanted–one that would feed his habits.

    5. Jeff says:

      It appears you know nothing about the crime he was convicted of a mens rea isn’t necessary for negligent homicide…educate yourself.

      1. d says:

        Ralph- My point exactly! Thank you

  11. CJay says:

    Is it just me or has everyone else noticed how media reporting is so sloppy and incomplete that the reader is left with so many critical details left out that it only answers who, when, where not why and what. It is like telling someone how to bake a pie, roll out the dough and place it in the oven. What is the verdict and why was it reached would be nice to know!

      Yeah…South Park is a great show. They really know how to bring it.

  14. Ralph Gizzip says:

    Michael Jackson was the epitome of the American Dream.

    Where else but in America could a poor black boy grow up to be a rich white woman?

    1. Animalfarm says:

      That thing was neither man nor woman, just a freak.

  15. wrickard says:

    A human being that gave so much to the world through His music died at a young age of 50, wish people actually remember that human life is the only thing we have that matters and should be respected. I do not believe he ever hurt a child. I think the doctor was just making money and that led Him to help Mr. Jackson end His life tragically.

  16. xdiesp says:

    It is astounding how much the US public opinion can be manipulated, it almost looks as they have no mind by themselves. Just the day before his death, Jackson was considered the lowest of pedophiles, and each and every comedian around made jokes about it. Then he died and the gried industry lift off.

  17. C Hogan says:

    Was there anything in the Verdict that mentioned how many CHILDREN this FREAK molested before he OD on a surgery drug.

    1. Astonished says:

      No. His prediliction towards underaged boys wasn’t part of this trial. However, even if it had been, it would have been considered irrelevant because the trial was held to determine if his doctor, Conrad Murray, acted with Gross Negligence; thereby causing the death of his patient by: 1) giving Jackson a drug that was designed to only be used in hospital settings, under strict; competent, and constant supervision and with the appropriate mechanical back up equipment immediately at hand, 2) Abandoning a sedated patient. 3) Leaving medications readily available to a sedated patient, and 4) lying to the EMT’s, doctors and the police in order to cover up his gross negligence.

    2. noneoff says:

      IF Michael Jackson was a pedophile, none of the kids that you allege that he touched died as a result of that touch. Michael Jackson died as a result of the way Conrad Murray touched Michael

  18. Nunya Business says:

    I love these comments. You can tell the closet pedophiles. All they see in MJ is their own demon. Same with those who have addiction problems, seeing MJ as just an addict. This story is like a Rorschach test. What you see says far more about you than the actual story.
    Funny how so few comments are discussing the physician administering Propofol in an unsafe and reckless manner. That is what this story is actually about in case you didn’t know…

    1. Ray says:

      The story is all about what is is.. The Judge mad an error when he instructed the Jury this was all about a judge wanting his 15 minutes.

  19. ZOO says:

    It could just be that since Jackson was in fact robbed of his childhood for a life in show business, it fueled his desire for the company and play activities of young children. Lots of inuendo, but abuse of these children has never been proven and that really frustrates those dying for it to be true. He will not be the last entertainment icon to lose his life trying to control things with drugs. I don’t think Murry killed him, I think Jackson’s lifestyle killed him – just like hundreds of other famous entertainers.

    1. d says:

      I agree- Can you say, “Elvis Presley?” I had a sh@#$ childhood too- Have done my own renedition of Self Destruction (only not famous for it). We just cannot keep blaming others for our choices and expect it to change- May MJ RIP- Let the Dr. get on w/ it and maybe have probation. We really will never know what happened. Where the heck is his family- really…no reflection due to Joe J and his less than right parenting skills…nevermind. ..we do not know if that is true either- I do know, however, MJ was 50…time to decide or call it a day-

  20. steve mcfadden says:

    Media you are disgusting for not letting this non story die. Let Michael die and let his family have some peace.

    Sorry doc, but I don’t believe Jackson could have injected himself with this potent narcotic. You enabled his addictions and went one dose too far. Your license will be shredded if there is any justice or protection against bad medicine to be found anymore.

    I loved Michael Jackson’s music from the time he was a young boy. He was born with incredible talent, one in a gazillion. That his life was so sad in so many ways makes ME sad! People I know who worked with him confirm he struggled with the terrible “lessons” he was taught as a kid, and as he said, he wasn’t allowed to have a childhood. I hope he is singing and dancing in heaven …. I miss him!

  41. jack says:

    MJ probably did it to himself as an addict. Dr. Murray knowing his patient had a drug problem was negligent in leaving the drugs where MJ could get to them. However, I have a hard time with manslaughter over criminal negligence. That said, i think they both ended up where they were ultimately going to go sooner or later.

  42. Dory in Az says:

    He should not have given Michael propofol….or whatever that stuff was….however… Michael Jackson was a drug addict…plain and simple….he would do whatever it took to have the drugs he sought…..he killed himself, like all drug addicts eventually do, but he took this idiot doctor with him….this doctor deserves to lose his license….that’s all….

    I did not know Michael personally, but I believe that when he died, the world lost an Angel. I do not know if he did those things to children or not. I would say no. I believe he had a strong love for children. Thank God, Conrad Murray was found guilty of Involuntary Manslaughter. He could get 4 years in jail & possibly lose his medical license. Now, if he doesn’t lose his license, would you honestly go to a man who was accused of involuntary manslaughter? I wouldn’t. God Bless the Jackson family.

  49. The Jackson Four says:

    Pastor, who said Murray “poses a demonstrable risk to the safety of the public,” ordered him to be held at the Los Angeles County Jail without bond.

    What a joke. Murray is no threat to the public. He’s not going to go around and inject people with drugs against their will. Is he unethical? Yes! Should he lose his medical license? Yes! But he is no killer and is no threat to society at large.

    Michael Jackson was a junkee pedophile and the world is better off without him.

    This man should be given the Congressional Medal of Honor for ridding this planet of this despicable pedophile.

  51. elvis's_doctor says:

    He got off too easy. The corrupt medical community will never willingly return to a competitive, free-market system. They place maintenance of federal subsidies over the health-maintenance of patients. Consequently healthcare is inflated and out of the reach of 100m, unsubsidized Americans. Solution: Single-payer or total, free-market model.
    Of course you can argue, the good, dark-complexioned doctor is a victim of racism – given Elvis’s, Tennessee-mob doctor got away with murder.

  52. James C James says:

    I think Conrad Murray killed a true Messenger of God, a Humanitarian to the World, an icon to the entertainment industry, a loving brother to his siblings, that will be truly missed from this world, but we will see him again, in God’s promise!

  53. Tim says:

    Michael Jackson was guilty (& payed for with his life) of diddling those young boys. O.J. didn’t escape his bad joo joo, either.

  54. JM in San Diego CA says:

    The conviction was based on “YOU SHOULD HAVE KNOWN!”

    Dr. Murray did so-o-o-o many things he “should have known” were out of bounds.

    @ Chicago Nick,

    Your are a SICK individual!!!!!!!

  56. pompey says:

    …when I first heard of his death I knew someone would have to pay……and sure enough….

  57. rankin1 says:

    Jackson was a deranged pedohpile

  58. cecille says:

    I cannot believe a CA jury can convict ANYONE OF ANYTHING. Guilt? How can one be certain? CA is a horrible backward state of liberal zombie morons. Look who they have leading them….PELOSI, FEISNSTEIN, CALL ME SEN BOXER…etc. I can’t believe anyone with a functioning cerebellem is living there. Let the welfare/union zeros have the broke ass state.

      What does your comment have to do with the Conrad Murray conviction??

  59. Steve Rayburn says:

    When michael jackson died the right minded people of the world should have gotten down on their knees and thanked God because an individual who subverted peoples’ minds making what is wrong seem right had left the earth on multitude of issues. But instead the effeminate one who liked little boys was glorified by his followers and handlers. http://www.PatriotFreedomReport.com

  60. David Kaplan says:

    I like to make a comment on the verdict. That will teach Dr. Conrad Murray a lesson. Thumbs up !
    Dr. Conrad Murray’s medical license will go out the window.
    From David Kaplan of Los Angeles, CA
    I like to make another comment on the verdict. I will agree with a Michael Jackson’s fan that Dr. Conrad Murray guilty of man slaughter. I will disagree with Dr. Conrad Murray’s supporter. He will be in serious trouble by LAPD

  61. Ben says:

    Jackson killed himself with the help of someone that could not say NO to the money. I am certain, to a few small boys that felt abused by Jackson, it is Karma. A great and wasted talent. At some point he must accept responsibility for his own life. At 50+ years old, I would say he was well past the time of taking personal responsibility.

  62. J. Smith says:

    I am an ICU nurse, and I administer propofol to patients on a daily basis

    It is a useful drug, but it is extremely dangerous if not given safely in an appropriate environment (with continuous monitoring of vital signs, and with the means to immediately breathe for the patient in the likely event that he or she stops breathing. If the Doctor was going to cater to his patient’s addictions (not something I agree with), then the LEAST he could have done was to ensure his patient’s safety while he was doing so. I think he got off lightly, to be honest. And he’ll defineitly lose his medical liscence.

  63. Jerry-Btown says:

    Do they purposely aim for morons when picking a jury these days? Going after a doctor for a drug addict who abused their meds is such a damn cop out. Drug addicts play the Doctor’s, not the other way around. Oh well,.. America has no shortage of idiots these days.

  64. Jesse says:

    These people honestly are all in it for a book deal. They should have rid this doctor of his ability to practice medicine. But come on man slaughter??

  65. fish says:

    He should be eligible for the Nobel Peace Prize for getting rid of that child molester.

  66. tbranch says:

    Just love how the MJ fans completely ignore the fact that MJ layed down on that bed every day and submitted himself to those doses. He is responsible for his own death!! Murray was just the negligent idiot who did what MJ paid him to do. No one, and I mean NO ONE, in their right minds, would subject themselves to thatl! Who among us will die because we are having a anesthetic drug pumped into our veins in our own bedrooms on a daily basis? None of us, that’s who. I’ll say it again. Michael Jackson is responsible for his own death. He was not a great father that he is made out to be in his death. If he was such a great father, why would he risk his life in this manner? And yes, he was warned of the dangers! I also bet that any of you MJ lovers would have gladly administerd that drug to him just to make some big bucks and be near him. Any of you that think he was a victim need to get real!

    1. brian says:

      well siad also the main reason why the jurors voted guilty because they are MJ fans yes there loyal fans am not a big fan of MJ but I do like some of his songs and yes he is a gifted musican and he will be forever missed for his music he is like john lennon of a different kind except john lennon gave the world love and peace through his music when the world was tearing itself apart and he was not affraid to express himself nor was he about the mega dollars he just wanted to be a regular everyday person. now for MJ he was just the mega dollars and tried to please everyone but that backfired like no tomrrow as for his family I truly feel in there loss and that is from human being prospective

  67. wgaf says:

    I would pay for this doctor to give me a colonoscopy with his unlubed digits.

  68. brian says:

    This goes to show the jacksons are greedy why sue bettter for the lack of in the event murry is in prision he won’t be able to attend the civl trial dugh
    the man is quilty for not calling 911 nor trying to provide any help until after the fact the attys could not estblash motive nor there was any motive in the killing of jackson the penal codes in the state of ca need to be re writen in order to commit or to be charged in a homicided there must be a motive for the killing however he is negelent for many things but he did not outright kill him as the penal code made him look like he had inended to kill him the security guards and bodyguards are just as guilty for not taken in any real obseravations as to what was going on and any signs of distress or unusalness in a person should had been note worthy and they should have or had intervene I hope Mr murry gets probation since the court did not had a probation report which is standard procedure in any court matter involing a misdaemnor or fleony except in the case of captial offense ie 1st degree and second degree murder was not prepare nor investigated because that is part of the sentencing phase if any is to be included so that the judge can make his or her decsion as to what kind of actual sentence he should get since there were no elements suporting a homicide ie intended or not the DA lacked alot of elements that would point to a homicide therefore Mr murry should not be able to practice medicine for the remainder of his life and be put on probation for at least 10 years

  69. Crazy Horse says:

    So? Why would anyone with a life care about this pervert boy-sucker or his doctor…..or his goofy family??

  70. G-Money says:

    Though Mr. Murray may have been irresponsible relating to Michael Jacksons death, he certainly didn’t warrant the circus atmosphere that was put on after the verdict was read, when the judge, who I believe at the behest of strong public opinion poll decided to revoke Murrays bond and place him in custody when there has been out-right murderers released on bond. I believe the jury was corced into bringing a guilty verdict.

    Michael is gone. He gave us what he did of himself. Though he will be missed, there is nothing that will bring him back. Like a family member we mourn, but eventually we have to let go. Life is for the living. What we all need to do is get our own lives right so when that time comes our house will be in order to give an account.

  71. Sara Kitchen says:

    Read the Michael Jackson biography. It is rather telling…I wonder why people didn’t see that he had a problem much sooner.

  72. Dr. Blogger says:

    One way to look at it is that Dr. Murray simply performed a public service.

    Now he gets 4 years of R&R.

    He can lift weights, work on a new degree, write a book or two & watch some TV
