The former King of Pop Michael Jackson’s incarcerated physician Dr. Conrad Murray feels vindicated following the verdict in the pop legend’s wrongful death trial against AEG Live. In fact, he is so adamant that the verdict in the trial absolves him of any wrongdoing.
In case you’ve forgotten, Conrad Murray was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in 2011. He gave Michael a lethal, but accidental overdose of Propofol while trying to get the singer to sleep. This caused Michael’s death on June 25, 2009 and he has since been sentenced to four years in jail.
The singer’s family subsequently filed a wrongful death lawsuit demanding compensation from AEG Live for hiring Dr. Murray to treat the Billie Jean singer, but a jury cleared AEG Live head honchos of any wrongdoing on Wednesday and ruled that the doctor was not ‘incompetent’.
In an audio recording released by TMZ, Conrad thanks God for the trial’s outcome and insists it has vindicated him as a doctor. He says in the recording, “I just want to praise you Lord… Today you have vindicated my image… I have never been and never will be an inept physician. This has always been a frivolous and unjust lawsuit. This time there is justice. This time the jury got it right. Thank you Lord.”
That moron probably thinks that the verdict in the AEG case will somehow free him from prison. What do you think?
