It looks like Michael Jackson’s family, friends, and fans have finally received justice today as Dr. Conrad Murray has been found guilty of involuntary manslaughter relating to his death.

Members of Jackson’s family, including parents Joe and Katherine, and siblings LaToya, Janet, Jermaine and Randy, were all present in Los Angeles County Courthouse for the verdict.
The singer’s three kids – Prince Michael, Paris and Blanket – were not in court for the hearing.
Michael’s sister, Latyoya Jackson, immediately took to her Twitter page following the conviction:
Murray, who sat expressionless as the verdict was announced, faces up to four years behind bars.
