A verdict has been reached in the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray. Judge Michael Castor read the verdict submitted from the jury of seven men and five women. "We the jury find Dr. Conrad Murray Guilty of Involuntary Manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson."

Michael Jackson's Family and fans began gathering near the courthouse as word that the jury had reached a verdict late this morning (10:56 PT - 1:56 p.m. ET) on whether or not Dr. Conrad Murray was criminally negligent in the death of Michael Jackson for administering surgical anesthetic propofol for treatment of insomnia which cost Jackson his life on June 25, 2009.

The judge thanked, discharged and excused the jury as they discussed sentencing procedures which will begin Tuesday November 29th. The now convicted felon Conrad Murray faces up to four years behind bars.
