Jury Reaches Verdict in Conrad Murray Trial

A crowd stands outside the courthouse in Los Angeles awaiting the verdict in the Conrad Murray trial. The jury signaled that they had reached one on Monday, November 7. ABC News Radio(LOS ANGELES) -- The jury deliberating the fate of Michael Jackson's doctor, Conrad Murray, has buzzed three times from the deliberation room, signaling that they have reached a verdict.

The court said last week that they would give Murray, attorneys and the media a two-hour window of time to return to the Los Angeles County courthouse once a verdict has been reached before announcing the decision.

If convicted, Murray could be sentenced to as much as four years in prison and lose his medical license.

Murray was accused of causing the singer's death by administering the powerful anesthetic propofol and not properly supervising his patient or taking proper steps after Jackson stopped breathing.

Murray has contended that Jackson gave himself the fatal dose while the doctor was out of the room.
