DA attacks 'Dr Feelgood' culture after Murray verdict

District Attorney Steve Cooley has said the guilty verdict in the case of Michael Jackson's personal doctor sends a strong message to those who chose to play the role of "Dr Feelgood".

His comments came after Dr Conrad Murray, 58, was convicted of involuntary manslaughter.

Dr Murray was charged with causing the pop star's death, attributed to a fatal overdose of the sedative propofol in June 2009, but had denied any wrongdoing.

During the six-week trial, 49 witnesses and more than 300 pieces of evidence were presented.
