Conrad Murray has been found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson. The jury delivered their verdict this morning at 8:17 a.m. after less than two days of deliberation at the Los Angeles County Courthouse. It follows six weeks of trial that have been closely followed by Michael Jackson fans, many of whom believed the doctor was guilty. Members of Michael’s family who were present in court today include his parents, Joe and Katherine, and his siblings Jermaine and La Toya, who tweeted on her way to court, “Verdict is FINALLY IN!!! I'm on my way! I'm shaking uncontrollably!” As a result of the verdict, Conrad Murray, who didn’t testify during the trial, faces up to four years in jail and could be banned from pracitising medicine. Michael Jackson died on June 25, 2009.
