If there's one thing Acres Homes is known for, it's quality medical care, but somehow Doctor Conrad Murray has managed to stain that illustrious reputation.
A California jury found Murray guilty today of involuntary manslaughter in the case of Michael Jackson, who was an entertainer, at least until Murray started treating him.
The jury found Murray had been reckless in his treatment of Jackson, giving him doses of a powerful anesthetic in part because he had trouble sleeping.
