Conrad Murray Found Guilty of Manslaughter in Michael Jackson's Death

Its the moment of truth the nation has waited for.

Dr. Conrad Murray showed little emotion as the verdict was announced in the hushed Los Angeles courtroom.

He was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter for giving Michael Jackson a fatal overdose of the powerful anesthetic Propofol and now faces up to four years in prison.

The Jackson family rushed in force to the courthouse to hear the verdict they've been anticipating since the King of Pop's death more than two years ago.

There was a big reaction from the crowd outside the courthouse when the decision was read.

The seven men and five women deliberated in a jury room on the ninth floor. Inside the room was a coffee maker and 400 piecs of evidence that they sorted through.

HLN's Jane Velez-Mitchell told INSIDE EDITION, "If I had to take a wild guess, I would think that the debate they might be having in there is very similar to the debate we've all been having--is Michael Jackson an addict or not? Is he bearing some responsibility for what happened, or not?"

Shortly after 2 pm Eastern Time, the jury buzzed the judge three times, the signal they'd reached a verdict. Dr. Conrad Murray guilty of manslaughter in Michael Jackson's death.
