Dr. Conrad Murray, found guilty Monday of causing Michael Jackson’s death, begins his new life as an inmate in a section of the Los Angeles County jail where high-profile prisoners are kept, a jail official said.

While it is the “medical area” that houses inmates on suicide watch, Murray is only there because it has a higher ratio of guards, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Sgt. Harry Drucker said.

Murray’s defense team has vowed to appeal his involuntary manslaughter conviction, but first they must deal with his sentencing set for November 29.

While Murray was “devastated” by the guilty verdict, he is “confident” he will win an appeal, defense lawyer Nareg Gourjian said.
