Michael Jackson/Conrad Murray

Los Angeles (CNN) — The doctor convicted in Michael Jackson’s death sees the jury’s verdict in a wrongful death civil trial as “justice.”

“I cried because, for once, the world was allowed to hear some of the facts at they pertain to this matter — a lot of facts that have been suppressed, much of which I was denied and my attorneys could not present during my criminal trial,” Dr. Conrad Murray said on NBC’s “Today” on Thursday.

He described himself as “relieved.”

A jury found Wednesday that concert promoter AEG Live was not liable in Jackson’s death. The jury found that AEG Live had hired Conrad Murray, but that Murray was competent.
