As you've all been hearing, Conrad Murray has been found guilty of the death of Michael Jackson in June 2009.

Conrad Murray has been charged with involuntary manslaughter after Jackson, the singer known as the King Of Pop died after taking the sleeping drug Propofol.

Murray, 58, could face up to 4 years in jail and will be stripped of his medical license. However, due to overcrowding in LA jails, there could be the chance of him being put under house arrest.

Murray will be sentenced at the end of November.

The entire Jackson family was inside the court and La Toya Jackson was heard cheering as the verdict was read.

Outside court, fans chanted "Justice for Michael". They refused to acknowledge that their hero had been a drug addict for many years and, like the Jackson family, viewed Murray as a wanton killer.

"This is a crime where the end result was the death of a human being and the public should be protected," said LA Superior Court judge Michael Pastor.
