Rev. Al Sharpton responded to the guilty verdict in the Dr. Conrad Murray trial yesterday saying that he believes Michael Jackson’s former doctor got off “lightly.”

Sharpton, who was close with the pop legend, had mixed emotions when he heard the verdict.

“I received the news of the guilty verdict in the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray with mixed emotions feeling that only a down payment of justice has been served. Certainly I feel that more punishment could and should have been served, but I am pleased that this jury didn’t blame Michael for his own death,” said Sharpton.

Sharpton did express some happiness for the Jackson family even if they will never get their prized son back.

“For the Jackson family, particularly his mother and children that have gone this horrific ordeal, to hear a verdict that buried Michael again would have been devastating. I am happy that they didn’t have to suffer that indignity,” said Sharpton. “I feel that Dr. Murray and others who benefited from Michael but didn’t protect him got off relatively lightly. Michael lost his life and we lost one of the greatest entertainers that ever lived. I lost a friend and will never forget him.”
