Micheal Jackson’s personal doctor has been imprisoned for involuntary manslaughter after a six week trial.
Dr Conrad Murray was taken away after the Los Angeles jury reached a verdict that all unanimously agreed on.
The 58 year old doctor, who could face up to four years in prison, will be sentenced on 29 November.
Dozens of fans outside the courtroom, who were holding up banners of justice, cheered and cried when the verdict was made.
Mr Murray had pleaded guilty to giving the global superstar a fatal dose of the powerful anaesthetic propofol, which is used in surgery and must never be taken to cure insomnia.
The drug is considered to be the main cause of the ‘Billie Jean’ singer’s death on June 2009.
Prosecutors said that Mr Murray was extremely negligent in giving the propofol to help Mr Jackson sleep.
However, defence attorneys argued that Mr Jackson, who was addicted to the drug, gave the fatal dose to himself without their client’s knowledge.
Mr Murray, who had been free on bail for two year, will be held in custody until he is sentenced.
The doctor, who did not testify at the Los Angeles trial, looked emotionless as the verdict was read out.
Mr Jackson’s mother Katherine and his sister Rebbie cried discreetly, while La Toya, Jermaine, Randy and their father Joe were by their side.
The musical icon was found dead at his Los Angeles mansion in 25 June two years ago, aged 50.
His death came three weeks before he was to begin a series of comeback tours in London, with the intention to return to success after the 2005 child molestation trial tarnished his reputation.
