Dr. Conrad Murray has been found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson.
After about nine hours of deliberations, jurors delivered the guilty verdict Monday in the downtown Los Angeles courthouse.
Following the verdict, Murray was handcuffed and taken into custody with no possibility of bail.
The jury consisted of seven men and five women that heard 49 witnesses over 23 days.
A number of fans have gathered outside of the courthouse with signs showing support to the Jackson family.
Murray, 58, has been charged with the lowest possible homicide offense and faces a maximum sentence of four years in state prison and a minimum sentence of probation.
He will be sentenced November 29.
SAN FRANCISCO – Barry Bonds was convicted of obstruction of justice today, but a jury of eight women and four men could not render a verdict on three counts of perjury after four days of deliberations.
A mistrial was declared on the three perjury counts, and the jury was released.
Bonds sat impassively as the verdict was read.
While the jury was divided on the three charges that Bonds lied when he told a grand jury in 2003 that he had never knowingly used performance-enhancing drugs, the guilty verdict for obstructing the federal investigation of the BALCO case makes him a convicted felon.
A May 20 date was set for a status hearing, at which time a sentencing date will probably be set. Each count carries up to 10 years in prison. However, Bonds is most likely to get probation.
