7 November 2011, 21:27
The King Of Pop's doctor could now face up to four years in prison.
Michael Jackson's doctor Conrad Murray has been found guilty of the singer's involuntary manslaughter.
A jury of 12 men and women reached a unanimous verdict at Los Angeles Superior Court today (7th November).
Dr Murray had denied giving Michael a fatal overdose of the powerful sedative propofol on the day that he died in June 2009.
He sat silently as the verdict was read out, although a cheer was heard from the public balcony. Fans of the late King Of Pop also reacted to the news outside the court building.
Dr Murray has been remanded in custody until sentencing and was led away from the courtroom in handcuffs after the judge refused bail.
The 58-year-old doctor could now face the maximum of four years behind bars and the loss of his medical license.
Michael Jackson died on the eve of his comeback gigs in London, which were scheduled to take place over 50 nights at the O2 Arena.
