Dr. Conrad Murray, who was accused of the involuntary manslaughter of Michael Jackson, has been found guilty. He faces up to four years in prison and could have his medical license revoked.

The jury, which started deliberations on Fri., Nov. 4, announced it had a verdict around 11AM PT on Mon., Nov. 7, and revealed its decision after 1PM PT from the courthouse in Los Angeles — the delay allowed for family members and others time to arrive.

Murray’s defense team acknowledged that the doctor had given Jackson a low dose of the sedative Propofol on the day of his death, June 25, 2009, but that the singer self-administered more of the drug and ingested another sedative, Lorazepam, while the doctor was not present.

Prosecutors, meanwhile, alleged that Murray had behaved recklessly in his treatment of the 50-year-old singer, who was preparing for a string of comeback concerts and complained of insomnia. Several witnesses also testified that Murray did not call 911 immediately after discovering Jackson’s unresponsive body. The singer was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

The trial began earlier this year on Sept. 27 and lasted 23 days, concluding with closing statements last Thurs., Nov. 3.
