The verdict was emotional for him...
The man convicted of involuntary manslaughter in Michael Jackson's death says that he had an extremely emotional reaction to AEG Live being declared not negligent in Jackson's passing by hiring him. Conrad Murray spoke with Today this morning and said he was brought to tears by the verdict, which ruled that Murray was not unfit for the work for which he was hired.
Murray said in the interview, "My immediate reaction was one of tears; certainly, I cried. I cried because for once the world was allowed to hear some of the facts that pertained to this matter. A lot of facts that had been suppressed, much of which I was denied and my attorneys could not present during my criminal trial. I was not given a fair chance to defend myself, nor were they given an opportunity to defend me. Based on the ruling of the court, I was very relieved that at least the world had a chance of hearing some of the facts…"
Murray is finishing up a jail sentence after being found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in Jackson's death by administering a lethal dose of Propofol. Check out the interview below:
