The Jackson family is speaking out after the conviction of Conrad Murray. The family has been silent over the past six weeks while the Dr Conrad Murray Trial was playing out, but after the guilty verdict yesterday, the family has opened up on how they are coping with the loss of Michael Jackson and watching the trial. Rebbie Jackson was on the Today Show Tuesday morning describing the moment she heard the verdict.
“When I heard the verdict, I thought I was going to feel as though I got a tremendous amount of relief, but I felt really numb and not only that, I started crying profusely,” said Rebbie Jackson.
Sharing the outcome has not satisfied the need to see Michael Jackson, it is sounding like the verdict is a chance to get closure for the family and feel like some justice has been served. As the criminal portions of the trial is over, the sentencing is left and the Jackson’s sound like they are bracing for the worst.
“I do know that because of the law that has recently been passed I understand the jails are overcrowded so he’s supposed to get up to four years but I have been told that he might just get house arrest,” stated Rebbie Jackson. “I don’t know. And it’s sad, because my brother is gone and nothing will bring him back, that’s for sure.”
Rebbie Jackson along with the Jackson family sound like they are going to be returning to the courtroom on November 29 to learn Conrad Murray’s fate when Judge Pastor decides sentencing.
