Jackson En route To Courthouse

Jackson making his way to courthouse

Michael Jackson is on his way to learn his fate. Jackson is believed to be in one of the black SUVs that has left his Neverland Ranch for the courthouse in Santa Maria. They didn't roll through the sprawling ranch's gates until nearly a quarter-past the hour -- for what is normally a 30-to-40 minute ride to court.

Before leaving the estate, the vehicles drove by a group of people holding linked arms up in the air.

The court had earlier told Jackson to be ready to arrive within an hour of being told a verdict was reached.
