Dr. Conrad Murray has been found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson.
Murray has been taken into custody without bail. He is due back in court for sentencing on November 29th.
For a great write-up on the twists and turns of Murray’s relationship with the King of Pop (before and after his demise), head over to theGrio.com.
According to CNN, it’s hard to say what Murray’s punishment may be:
“Jeffrey Toobin said if Conrad Murray is convicted in the case of involuntary manslaughter it is tough to say what his possible sentence would be.
‘There are not many people prosecuted for this crime,’ he said. ‘The range of options are probation to four years. This crime [involuntary manslaughter] is usually part of a plea bargain deal. There are not a lot of trials of this kind of crime’
If Murray is convicted he will lose his medical license as well. Some legal experts have also questioned how California’s current problem of prison overcrowding might play into a sentence if he were to be convicted.”
