AEG was found not guilty after a trial that lasted 5 months. The 12 people jury said Conrad Murray was fit to take care of Michael Jackson. He was very competent.
Jackson died of an overdose of the surgical anesthetic propofol, which Murray told investigators he was using to treat the singer’s insomnia so he could rest for rehearsals. Murray is set to be released from jail later this month after serving two years for involuntary manslaughter.
Jackson died just days before his comeback tour — promoted and produced by AEG Live — was set to debut in London in the summer of 2009.
AEG said they hired Dr. Conrad Murray to treat Michael Jackson for insomnia and dehydration, not to give him propofol.
We will see if an appeal will be coming soon.
