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.

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."

MJ was a walking, talking, FREAK SHOW! I guess all the MJ fans support the the men from Penn State and Syracuse too! It was a matter of time before MJ's world as he knew it came crashing down. I promise you that if he were still alive they'd be coming out of the woodwork following recent events!

This guy simply refuses to take any accountability for his actions. It's crazy, I don't think he's a bad guy or that he intended for MJ to die, but geez take some responsibility sir.

well it will take longer for an appeal than his actual time on jail - but if he wins for incompetent counsel then that does set him up for a malpractice suit against his lawyers, so i bet this is for money

All he's doing is keeping it fresh in our minds that he did, in fact, kill Michael Jackson. So, go ahead, appeal that sh*t..then get verbally spanked by ANOTHER judge.

Appeal all you want Connie - won't do you any good and the fact that you are representing yourself shows what an egotistical wind-bag you truly are. You were given numerous chances to tell your side and declined each time. Why? Because you know you are guilty as hell and you know David Walgren would tear you a new one. Your many lies caught up with you and there is no turning back now. Who would even believe a word you say now? Nobody! Judge Pastor got the sentencing right and you need to man up for the first time in your pathetic life and accept responsibility for your actions! Those negligent actions resulted in the death of another person. It is high time you face those facts and stop blaming everyone else for your deadly Doctoring!!

so it will take longer for an appeal than his actual sentence?

The fear is taking over Dr Murray as the jail time approaches. Murray knows he will be targeted in prison and will be forced to eat an inmate tossed salad. The last thing Murray wants is his face between another inmates spread cheeks but it's coming Conrad, the tossed salad is coming! You should have dialed 911 and maybe you could have avoided all that, but you showed Jack no mercy, and I'm sure the other cons will show you no mercy as they sodomize you.
