Michael Jackson manslaughter trial
Accused: Conrad Murray
Charges: Involuntary manslaughter
Sentence: Four years, but expected to only serve two because of prison overcrowding
Michael Jackson's personal doctor, Conrad Murray, faced an involuntary manslaughter charge in Los Angeles for his role in the pop singer's death. At the centre of the prosecution's argument was Murray's use of an anesthetic called propofol, used to help Jackson sleep. The defence claimed that Jackson had given himself a deadly dose of the drug when Murray left the room.
The jury ruled Murray was guilty of involuntary manslaughter. In his final ruling Judge Michael E. Pastor skewered the doctor, calling him "grossly negligent" and warning other doctors "not to sell their services to the highest bidder."
