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.
In this week’s “New Rules” political comedian Bill Maher addresses the Michael Jackson case, Andy Rooney, his desire for Apple to make a gun and the Republican’s Presidential nominee.
Michael Jackson’s sister made the bizarre revelation during an appearance on CBS’s The Talk where she was promoting her new autobiography ‘Starting Over’.
It tells of the abuse she suffered at the hands of her ex-husband and manager Jack Gordon, who she says also ‘hated and despised’ her legendary entertainer brother.
La Toya, 55, accused Gordon of beating and threatening to kill her during their tumultuous marriage.
Audiences on the daytime talk show gasped when the former model told how Gordon, who died in 2005, once attempted to charge Mike Tyson the hefty sum to sleep with her.
She also claimed he forced her to take part in group sex against her will and to pose for twice Playboy magazine.
‘Mike Tyson later told my mother and father and some other friends that he (Gordon) had told him that if he wanted to sleep with me he has to pay $100,000,’ she told the show’s panel.
‘I was in brothels and everything. He put me(it was) everything I was against. He made me do Playboy twice and had me sit on the stage and say ‘Oh no, it was all my idea’.
‘And I had to do that because I knew what he said he would do, he would do it.’
La Toya added: ‘I wrote this book for women. It was very difficult for me, because when he (Gordon) took me, at that time I was a strict Jehovah’s Witness and I knew nothing about the world whatsoever.
‘I was 29 and one of those over the top religious people. I was mentally 16 because of not knowing the world and what people do, not everyone was honest and I believed everything they said.’

During the interview, La Toya also told of her shock at witnessing the scene of her brother Michael’s death, at his Holmby Hills home in June 2009.
She said she was taken aback when she arrived because his bedroom appeared to have been ransacked as though someone was ‘looking for something.’
‘It was about 12 hours until we got there. Michael had passed away that morning.
‘When we got there, I had the people walk us through the room and it was a total wreck.
‘Everything was turned over, upside down, it was like ‘who has been looking for what?’
‘I know the cops and other people had been through there but there was no reason for that. It was just a complete mess.
