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.

You're the one who pointed that "they" could "branch out" after working the CC. That's why I said they? they who? All black artists were/are still limited for exposure in the entertainment industry. Of course it's not nearly as bad as it was over 50 years ago, but suttle insulting limitations are still there......especially in the film industry. I just pointed out how someone could sell 20 million copies and still have a network object to the artist well over a decade after the civil rights act. Trying to insult my intelligence for additional posts will not work. you can have the last word on this one. Michael outsold and out performed every artists who ever lived. there's nothing you can write that can change the record books. comeback all you want too......yada yada yada

btw: as for you and duilama and your ridiculous lies, rants and distorttion against michael's life and legacy now and forever you both are:

You can't understand the words you read or the context so you act ignorant and blame others. If the discussion is about the Jacksons and I use the word "they", it implies the Jacksons. It is really quite simple to most people with even basic reading and language skills.


I don't think you can really say MJ outperformed everyone. Everyone? He wasn't all that prolific and put on relatively few shows over the length of his career, usually with long gaps in between performances. Don't try and make it sound like he was averaging 100+ shows a year, or even 50. There are many performers that do it, year after year, decade after decade. Now you will point out audience size and I'll point out that the show you put on for 500 is not much different than the one you do for 5 million.


I (we) don't need to insult your intelligence, you are doing a fine job on your own.

I don't recall if it was BnB, OhWell or Diulama, that posted to Google: MJ Haters. It's been several days, but I didn't forget. So I googled it, and this is what I found at:

www.urbandictionary.com.

MJ Haters
Michael Jackson Haters
People who have something against Michael Jackson because they're jealous and they only listen to The Media, which only tells lies..
They spend their time going to places filled with MJ Lovers (opposie of MJ Haters, obviously) and insulting, punning, disrespecting Michael just to piss them off..
They have terrible grammar and can't spell worth a damn..
They have no life, and places they go to rant about Michael and look stupid are:
Yahoo! Answers - The Celebrity Section
Any YouTube video that's filled with MJ love
Any place that talks positively and truthfully about Michael Jackson

Early lifeRob Pilatus was born in New York City,[1] the son of an African American soldier and a German mother who worked as an adult entertainer. He was adopted as an infant by a German family who raised him in Munich. Pilatus worked as a model and break dancer, before joining Fabrice Morvan in 1988 to form the pop group Milli Vanilli.

Milli VanilliPilatus and Morvan were noticed by music producer Frank Farian, who signed them to be part of a musical act. Shortly after a trip to Turkey, where the duo reputedly took its name from a local advertising slogan, Milli Vanilli was born. Pilatus and Morvan served as the public faces for singers Charles Shaw and Brad Howell, who Farian thought were talented but lacked a marketable image.
The first Milli Vanilli platinum album was Girl You Know It's True, which became a worldwide hit. The album produced five hit singles including three number 1 hits, "Girl I'm Gonna Miss You", "Baby Don't Forget My Number" and "Blame It On The Rain".[4] Milli Vanilli won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist on February 21, 1990 for "Girl You Know It's True".

Despite the enormous success, the duo were a frequent target of rumours and allegations of onstage lip-synching and not having sung on the album. Charles Shaw, one of the actual vocalists, told a reporter the truth, but retracted his statement after Farian paid him $150,000.

When Pilatus and Morvan pressured Farian to let them sing on the next album, Farian admitted to reporters on November 15, 1990 that they had not performed on the recordings. Milli Vanilli's Grammy Award was withdrawn four days later,[7] and Arista Records dropped them from its roster and deleted their album and songs from their catalog, making Girl You Know It's True the largest-selling album to ever be taken out of print. A court ruling in the United States allowed anyone who had bought the album to receive a refund.

Farian later attempted an unsuccessful comeback for the group without Pilatus and Morvan. Months after the scandal, Pilatus and Morvan appeared in a commercial for Carefree sugarless chewing gum. In it the duo lip-synched to an opera recording. An announcer asked, "How long does the taste of Carefree Sugarless Gum last?" The record began to skip and the announcer added, "Until these guys sing for themselves."

In 1993, Pilatus and Morvan signed with a new label, Taj, and released Rob & Fab, an album featuring their own voices; it sold an embarrassing 2,000 copies. The label went bankrupt shortly thereafter.

[edit] DeathIn the years following the collapse of Milli Vanilli, Rob Pilatus struggled with substance abuse and even suicide attempts. After their unsuccessful comeback, Morvan and Pilatus stopped speaking to each other. In 1996, Pilatus served three months in prison for assault, vandalism, and attempted robbery. He also spent six months in drug rehabilitation, before returning to Germany from the United States.

On April 2, 1998, Rob Pilatus was found dead at the age of 32 from a suspected alcohol and prescription pill overdose in a Frankfurt hotel room. His death was ruled accidental.

You're the damn fool on this. Jews are still suffering persecution throughout the world. Have at it all you want too. I will not mock the pain and suffering of Jehovah God's chosen people.

What have you been reading? Where have you been? Don't say that you stand by what you write, and that you were sober when you did, because that makes you look even worse!
Luz: 7 hours ago
Did you make your research before you wrote that? Objectively!
Luz: 4 hours ago
Yeah! It all comes to the same point I made. Research is observation looking for the facts. That's what I meant. Do your research.

That’s pretty weak even if you bump it up to 250, being very generous, for other appearances. That’s an average of 10 performances a year, once again being very generous.

Or, if you prefer, 680 performances (estimated) from 1970-1997 bringing an average of 25-26 per year. That includes the ”Joe Jackson belt” years. Significantly less if you push back the date to his death.

I’m sure your have more accurate numbers though. If you can, you can count out all MJ’s performances and give an average per year.

I’ll give you credit for opening yourself up to ridicule. The only thing I’ll offer is a question. Did you ever sit in a class and think your professor is an idiot or “off his rocker”?
