Dr. Conrad Murray

Asks Court

To Get Out of Jail

1/27/2012 3:47 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0127_murray_getty_ex
Dr. Conrad Murray has just filed legal docs asking a judge to release him from jail pending appeal.

Murray claims in his legal docs he has a legitimate basis to appeal his manslaughter conviction.  Among the grounds for appeal -- "improper exclusion of defense evidence and witnesses that resulted in violating the defendant's State and constitutional rights to due process, to present a defense and to the effective assistance of counsel."

Murray's lawyer also says, "He has exhausted virtually all of his available resources."

Murray is asking to be released on no bail pending the appeal.

If released, Murray says he plans to live with his baby mama Nicole Alvarez -- and would be willing to wear an electronic monitoring bracelet.

Murray says he would also seek employment to support his children -- though it's unclear what work that would entail ... considering his medical license has been unceremoniously revoked.

To illustrate his dire circumstances behind bars, Murray's lawyer says the ex-doctor is housed under "maximum security" conditions -- isolated in a solitary cell, and escorted around the jail facility with his hands chained to his waist.

Conrad Murray seems to be rather narcissistic and delusional. No wonder he thought he was God when he was administering to Michael Jackson.

Contrary to public opinion, I say LET THE GUY GO!

Murray has been the Jackson Family's scapegoat from day one. If they can blame him, they don't have to blame themselves for sitting idly by and leeching MJ's money while watching him self destruct.

Ruining Murray's life will do nothing to bring the guy back.

Truth    

Dude played monopoly... and landed in JAIL. STFU already and do the time like all murderers. Here's a compromise - if he can prove MJ's death was fake and he's actually living in some hovel with Elvis overseas, we'll let him go. Point blank, period. Ball is in Murray's court. #Truth!!

Somehow I don't see that happening, judge wasn't impressed. Remember, it was everybody else's fault and he did nothing wrong.
