Conrad Murray

Appeals Manslaughter Conviction

12/2/2011 3:28 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1002_cm_EX_appeal
Dr. Conrad Murray has just filed an appeal, challenging his conviction for involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson ... TMZ has learned.

Murray filed the document in pro per -- which means he's representing himself instead of using a lawyer.

On the portion of the document where a lawyer will usually state his or her firm's contact information -- Murray lists "Men's Central Jail" ... and includes his booking number.

While he is representing himself, Murray is still communicating with one of the lawyers who repped him in the manslaughter trial, Nareg Gourjian.

update_bar
Gourjian tells TMZ ... "This case presents a gold mine of issues for any appellate lawyer.  Dr. Murray is confident that the Court of Appeal will vindicate him."

hiya pegasus:

here's the deal.. Moo-ray may appeal his conviction.. but bec his sentence is only for 2 years-- it will take that long.. 2 years! to even get in f ront of thr appellate court!!! which means-- as hard a Connie tries to overturn his conviction so he can keep his licenses.. it wil be for naught! as he maybe out before his court date will ensue..LOl

see any irony here? so it really doesn't mater IF he wants to accept his convicion or NOT.. who cares.. HE WILL ALWAYS BE A CONVICTED FELON!

the court date he only has to look forward to is facing Judge Pastor & Walgren in Jan for the restitution hearing.. LOL.. another means to tie up his hands/arms/eyes etc.. for g ood from exploiting MichAelJackson .. THAT'S HIS REALITY!

Meanwhile.. this 'hope' ploy reminds me when he suppodely was suicidal.. LOL.. the mentality of a 'pink' if there's ever one!

also.. it's OFFICIAL.. ARNOLD KLEIN WILL GO IN FRONT OF THE MED BOARD ON 15TH DEC.
and HN.. great he's broke etc.. tells ya.. he was padding his bills to MJ --it didn't take long didn't it--as soon as MJ passed.. his clinic was/is going under..

I BROUGHT THIS POST FROM katie10 ON THE OTHER BOARD: MJ's Skin Doc The Med Board Is On My Ass ... and My Lawyer Just Quit


I THOUGHT WHAT SHE HAVE WRITTEN IS VERY INTERESTING!!!!


katie10: 17 hours ago

Besides Klein's MS, there is something terribly WRONG with this man! He's completely lost his practice, going bankrupt, etc...Funny, those who F@CKED MJ over are now seeing the light of day, aren't they?! Evan Chandler shot his brains out, Murray in jail, Klein going to lose his license too. I don't know about the medications, we'll have to wait on that. I don't believe anything TMZ posts anymore nor what the 'media' says. Remember you all said MJ just wanted to be 'white', that he molested children. Facts are he indeed had vitiligo and a bad case of it (proven in autopsy and you can see it in photos) as well as LUPUS which you can also see on his skin and clearly MJ never hurt or touched a child. But Klein going on and on about MJ after he died, all his BS stories - his playmate Jason and all that BS. Even Liz Taylor didn't want anything to do with him. Enough is enough. The truth will prevail, as MJ said. Something in my gut tells me he wasn't giving MJ these drugs, at that high amount, clearly MJ didn't have any in his system and it would be detected up to and past 6- 8 months in a hair sample alone, but he was billing MJ for it.

RIP, Michael Jackson!


WHAT'S INTERESTING IS THAT katie10 POINTED OUT THAT KLEIN WAS NOT GIVING MJ THAT HIGH AMOUNT OF DEMEROL WHICH WAS WRITTEN IN HIS RECORD BUT WAS BILLING HIM FOR THAT AMOUNT!!!!


HERE'S ANOTHER THING THAT I THOUGHT WAS INTERESTING:


The Board reportedly wants to question Klein about the possibility that he self-prescribed narcotics, used false names on narcotics prescriptions, illegally handed out samples of dangerous drugs to his famous patients, and may have committed gross negligence by practicing while afflicted with multiple sclerosis.

http://www.tmz.com/2011/12/05/arnie-klein-michael-jackson-medical-board-investigation/6/#comments-anchor


THE BOARD FEELS THAT KLEIN WAS SELF-PRESCRIBING NARCOTICS TO HIMSELF AND USING FALSE NAMES ON PRESCRIPTIONS!!!!


THIS IS EXTREMELY INTERESTING AND IMPORTANT!!!!


AFTER MJ PASSED, KLEIN WENT ON A SLANDER BRIGADE AGAINST MJ!!!!


COMING UP WITH ALL TYPES OF "BS" LIES AGAINST MJ!!!!


NOW, THOSE VERY SAME "LIES" ARE COMING BACK TO KICK HIM IN THAT HOMO ASS!!!


LIKE katie10 POINT OUT, KLEIN BUSINESS WENT BANKRUPT, HOUSE CAUGHT ON FIRE, BEING SUED BY HIS FORMER ASSISTANT JASON PFEIFFER, BOA, ETC. AND NOW, FACING THE MEDICAL BOARD ON THE VERGE OF MEDICAL LICENSE BEING SUSPENDED!!!!


I HAVE TO REITERATE WHAT katie10 STATED: EVERYBODY WHO F@CKED OVER MJ IS GETTING EXACTLY WHAT THEY DESERVE!!!


AND SOME!!!!!


ISN'T LIFE JUST GRAND!!!

it's truly so unfortunate-- MJ suffered from Lupus & vitilago.. & topped off by that Pepsi burn accident & IF THAT WASN'T ENOUGH.. bulied b y JOE that he was ugly with his huge flat nose..

if he wasn't? MJ wouldn't have been under influence of these charlatan doctors.. FROM KLEIN.. HOFFLEIN then Later on Connie Moo-ray.

true.. as Cascio did state in his book-- MJ was using propofol but he was well looked after by 2 doctors even & some hospital staff.. THEY OBVIOUSLY WATCHED HIM LIKE A HAWK.. whoich Mooray certainly didn't.
I have a good sense.. Mooray buttered up MJ well & good.. extolling his genuis as a doctor why he didn't anyone else but himself to look after him putting him to sleep.. MORE LIKE A DEATH WATCH.. as it happened with MooraY...
Mj obviously believed --he knew what he was doing.. BUT HOW WASW MJ TO KNOW.. MOORAY WASN'T BY HIS BED MONITORING HIMN IF HE WAS 'DOWN'? & this was exactly what Mooray was doing.. CALLING HIS WHORES! I have no doubt-- MJ would have been appalled.. & betrayed IF he knew.. had an inkling.. & WOULD HAVE FiRED HIM ON THE SPOT!

as we'veseen..Mooray was very possessive of MJ-- he wanted tobe #1 in his LIFE. NOT that Mj called him his only friend.. WHICH IS/WAS TOTALLY BOGUS!

we cv an go by what MooraY said.. he comforted MJ's kids.. & WAS DEBUNKED FLATLY BY THE KIDS!

now.. ifthe DA gets his wish & throws him in the state pen & serve his 4 years.. more cause & reason.. Mooray w ill NEVER OVERTURN HIS CONVICTION..

actually, there's nothing he can do to overturn his conviction.. NADA.. if there was s emblance of it.. his defense would have found it by now.. IN FACT JUDGE PASTOR EVEN TOLD FLANAGAN.. THEY WERE' FORAGING' ETC.. when they wanted to test t hat IV before sentencing..LOL..

what could be different now? NOTHING!

Michael was into artistic talent.. NOT MEDICAL.. SO WE CAN ALL FORGET THAT SH&T!

Why Conrad Murray, a Convicted Felon, Remains on the Medicare Payroll


Yesterday in Los Angeles, Dr. Conrad Murray was sentenced to four years in prison for helping to kill Michael Jackson by prescribing him propofol, an industrial-strength anesthetic, for Jackson’s insomnia. California Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor called Murray a “disgrace to the medical profession” who had committed a “horrific violation of trust.” Dr. Murray was convicted on November 7, and the State of California suspended his medical license back in January. But not to worry: Murray can continue to get paid by Medicare.

This factoid is one of many contained in a letter that Senators Orrin Hatch (R., Utah) and Tom Coburn (R., Okla.) sent yesterday to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. In September, Hatch and Coburn sent Medicare chief Donald Berwick a list of 34 doctors and non-physician practitioners who have either been convicted of a felony, or pled guilty to a felony “generally considered detrimental to the Medicare program,” but retained their ability to bill Medicare for patient services, and/or to write orders and referrals.


“In response to our findings,” write Hatch and Coburn, “CMS confirmed that 37 individuals who were participating in the Medicare program were convicted of a felony. However, CMS did not confirm that they would revoke any single physician or non-physician practitioner identified for such crime.”

Berwick languidly responded that Medicare is “implementing an automated screening contract to help address the challenge of continuously monitoring provider licensure status,” but conceded that, in the meantime, “there are significant challenges with obtaining licensure information in real-time for all Medicare providers and suppliers.” But Conrad Murray lost his license in January. Today is the last day of November. Only in Washington does ten-plus months get called “real-time.”

Hatch and Coburn pointed out that CMS doesn’t appear to have built the basic infrastructure needed to root out felons. “CMS confirmed our understanding,” they write, “that it does not have basic data sharing agreements or performance metrics to share felony indictment or conviction data with the Department of Justice, the Internal Revenue Service, Office of the Inspector General within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS OIG), or State Officials.” In other words, Medicare doesn’t know whether or not the people they send taxpayers’ checks to are criminals.

And we wonder why Medicare and Medicaid lose trillions of dollars to fraud?

Hello HN & Mac!


Mac: You made an excellent point about Murray's appeal and the dates! Had to laugh to think that everything he is doing is for nothing - Ha ha! But still, even though he is a Convicted Felon Forever -won't stop him from Re-Applying for Medial License and that! Makes me sick that the SOB didn't get a life sentence or at least 15-20 years!


As far as Klein is concerned. Hn posted a thing about Kleins Assests and his filing Bancruptcy. Now personally speaking - I would LOVE TO SEE Klien not only loose his Medical License but also have to sell EVERYTHING HE OWNS to bay back his debts along with interest especially to the IRS!! And maybe do some jail time as well!


HN: What is this BS about Mecicare??? WTF!! Am I understanding it correctly? Does it mean that Murray can still bill and treat people for Medicare - inspite of the fact that he is a Convicted Felon? Not to mention other Doctors? And dispense drugs to these people?


If that is the case - then Our Government really needs to get up off of their Asses and kick out ALL of the Doctors (not just Murray) from the Medicare Program! Doctors such as Murray and others are Dangereous to the Public in numereous ways! How many people have to suffer and die before they act on it? That is some real BS there!!! And I am truly angry with the Medicare Program and Our Government to take the Public's Health & Safety and jeopardize it in this manner!! They should be Protecting it! Now I am really T'd Off!!!

what's more-- it's FORBES whpo reported he gets Medi-cal whatever? HELL.. THEY WILL PUT A STOP TO THAT BEFORE HE GETS OUT.. if not already!

People are disgusted with Morray.. or should I say.. people who really matter.. ARE DISGUSTED WITH MOORAY.. the pones who can really do somehting about his medical peactices.

He also haven't endeared himself to the Da.. oops..

txhe problem with Mooray ius-- HE THINKS HE'S OJ? WELL oj WAS FOUND.. NOTR GUILTY.. w hich gave OJ a lot of leeway to tiddle.. BUT SILLY EGOMANIAC COONIE WAS/IS CONVICTED! HE WAS/IS FOUND GUILTY! & he's fighting it.. he's not??!

THAT'S WHAT THE ARTICLE SAID THAT THE "QUACK" IS STILL ON THE PAYROLL FOR RECEIVING MEDICARE/MEDICAID PAYMENTS!!!


THE U.S. GOV'T SUCK!!


NOT ONLY IS THEY SLOW IN REIMBURSING THE DOCTORS BUT SLOW IN REMOVING DOCTORS WHO ARE CONVICTED OF A FELONY FROM THE PAYROLL!!!


I THOUGHT THAT THE ARTICLE WAS INTERESTING!!!!!


HERE'S AN INTERESTING SIDE NOTE:


IF THE "QUACK" EVER START BILLING THE GOV'T WHILE IN JAIL AND RECEIVE REIMBURSEMENT PAYMENTS THEN THE GOV'T CAN GET HIM FOR FRAUD!!!


SINCE, HE'S SO HARD UP FOR MONEY!!!


IT WOULD BE LIKE A REVOLVING DOOR FOR THE "QUACK" FROM JAIL TO FEDERAL PENITENTIARY!!!!
