Verdict Reached In Michael Jackson Involuntary Manslaughter Case: UPDATE: Guilty

Conrad Murray, who is on trial for the involuntary manslaughter of Michael Jackson is facing a lengthy prison sentence if the jury comes back with a guilty verdit. The verdict to be released at 1PM PST.
A jury has reached a verdict in the involuntary manslaughter case against Michael Jackson's doctor. Court officials say it will be read about 1 p.m. PST.

The verdict came Monday in the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray.

Prosecutors depicted Murray as a reckless physician who abandoned Jackson while he was under the effects of the powerful anesthetic propofol on June 25, 2009.
The testimony that has been proffered paints Murray in an awful light and makes one wonder how he he can sleep at night following Jackson's death. It appears that he didn't use customary and reasonable medical practices in giving Jackson propofol, and then couldn't provide sufficient care when Jackson most needed him. His failings extended to the 911 call and giving emergency personnel information they needed that could have saved Jackson.

The jury found Murray found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in Michael Jackson's death.
