Jackson’s brother Jermaine Jackson for his part said justice was finally served after the sentencing of Murray. The fans of the late King of Pop also jumped and shouted after hearing that Murray was found guilty to his pending case.
With the guilty verdict, Murray is could face four years in jail and could be banned from practising medicine once the sentencing is read on November 29.
