“Justice was served,” Michael’s father Joe and brother Jermaine both told Access Hollywood outside of the courthouse on Monday.
La Toya Jackson took to her Twitter page — both before and after the verdict — to sound off.
“Verdict is FINALLY IN!!! I’m on my way! I’m shaking uncontrollably!” La Toya Tweeted in the run up to Dr. Murray being found guilty, following it up with a message of “VICTORY!!!!!” after the conviction was revealed.
“Now, I’m happy,” an emotional La Toya told Access after exiting the courthouse.
“Michael I love you and I will continue to fight until ALL are brought to justice,” she Tweeted about an hour after the trial was over.
