"When I heard the verdict I thought I was going to feel as though I got a tremendous amount of relief, but I felt really numb," Rebbie told Ann Curry on Today. "And not only that, I started crying profusely."

Rebbie said the trial "brought everything back to reality." The defense tried to paint Michael as an addict who contributed to his own death, but Rebbie disagrees with that.

"Well, my problem that I have with the entire theory or situation was the fact that the doctor took an oath in being a professional. He performed something in a private setting, you might say, that is giving, administering propofol, which is wrong," Rebbie explained. "So no matter what the situation was, he was wrong because he's not supposed to do that."

"Was your brother to blame at all in contributing, in your view, to his death?" Ann asked.

"Not at all. I don't think he contributed to the death. I don't think so, no."

Rebbie said she will leave Conrad's sentence "in God's hands."

"It's sad because my brother is gone and nothing will bring him back, that's for sure."
