"We the jury find the defendant Dr Conrad Murray guilty," announced the Court Clerk.
The verdict was announced at about 1:15pm US time on the 18th floor of the LA County Courthouse where the trial has been heard.
Dr Murray reportedly spent the hours before the announcement with his family in Santa Monica.
Crowds gathered outside the court with placards, one of which read: 'Justice for Michael.'
According to TMZ, even though Dr Murray faces up to four years behind bars, he 'won't serve one day' in state prison. Due to overcrowding, non-violent felons are being sent to county jails.
But he might not even serve time there. Dr Murray could be eligible to spend his whole sentence in house arrest because it isn't likely he will commit another crime.
The Doctor was late to his trial, as Michael Jackson's family waited in the courthouse.
