One of the jurors in the Conrad Murray trial, according to a new report, discusses the deliberations, and how the jury agreed upon finding the doctor guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson, the legendary King of Pop. The jury deliberated for a number of hours, and rather quickly agreed upon the verdict. The trial lasted for six weeks, and a huge amount of evidence was presented, as well as expert witnesses that testified. According to the new report, the juror discusses the how the 911 call played a role in the verdict.
As NYDailyNews reports, Debbie Franklin said of the jury: “We took a vote and it was not unanimous, so we said let’s think about it over the weekend and talk about it on Monday. It was stressful. It was a lot of work. Yelling, everybody was talking.” According to the report, Franklin reportedly said that it was Murray not calling 911 right away that played a role in the verdict. Franklin explained: “The three biggest things for us were the 911 call, not calling 911. That was a big issue, and not having the medical equipment in the room to put somebody under sedation and leaving the room.”
As fans are aware, the 911 call not being made right away, as stated by Murray himself in his interview with LAPD, greatly bothered those closest to Michael Jackson and the fans. Franklin said in her interview, that there were three things that led the jury to convict Murray. She explained: “not calling 911,” “not having the medical equipment in the room to put somebody under sedation and leaving the room” were the things that led the jury to the conviction of Murray.
