Conrad Murray Guilty: What This Means For Michael Jacksons Kids (Photos)

Did Michael find justice today?

Jurors in the involuntary manslaughter trial of Michael Jackson‘s doctor Conrad Murray have reached their verdict, finding him guilty.

The jury of seven men and five women buzzed three times at 10:56 a.m. (1:56 p.m. EST) to signal their verdict after about nine hours of deliberation.

Michael Jackson’s three children Prince, 14, Paris, 13, and Blanket, 8, were left fatherless when the King of Pop died unexpectedly over two years ago from a self-administered deadly dose of propofol under Dr. Murray’s supervision.

Michael had planned his comeback tour in hopes that he could settle down and buy a home for his kids.  In a recorded audio before his death, the chart topper had said “he wanted to settle down and get a really, really good home for his family, for the kids” because they were living like “vagabonds.”

According to sources, Michael’s mother, Katherine Jackson has been filling the children in on the details of the trial herself as she’d rather they hear it from her and not through anyone else.

It’s also been reported that their grandmother will be the one to tell them the news of the verdict as well.

While Michael has seen his fair share of criticism during his years, there was no doubt that he was a good father for his three children.  He protected their identities from the media and according to reports was a very caring, loving father.

Today’s verdict will hopefully bring closure for his three children who even though have Michael’s family’s support to lean on, are both fatherless and motherless.

Meanwhile, Jackson fans who shouted slogans, waved signs and even argued with Murray supporters were outside the Los Angeles courthouse on Friday while a more solemn verdict vigil has been taking place with candles today.

The entire Jackson family was present at the courthouse today – with the exception of his sister Janet, who is currently overseas.

Check out our gallery of the scene outside the courthouse and tell us, do you agree with the verdict?  Let’s just hope his three children will find the peace in their lives that their father never had.
