Michael Jackson's Doctor Convicted of Involuntary Manslaughter

The Associated Press reported today that Dr. Conrad Murray, the doctor who was treating Michael Jackson at the time of his death, was convicted of involuntary manslaughter after administering a lethal dose of anesthetic to Jackson.

The jury was made up of seven men and five women and convicted the doctor of being responsible enough for the death after nine hours of deliberations. Murray was taken from the courtroom in handcuffs.
