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.

Well, what can you expect from a lying sociopath like Murray. Has shown no remorse what so ever for his crime he was convicted of. And he thinks Pastor will give this to him after that ass chewing he got in his sentencing about showing no remorse?? Well he hasn't shown any remorse yet so I don't think Pastor is going to fill even a little bit sorry for him. Murray just needs to take responsibility for what he did like a man, and quit crying at every little thing. I bet if they had him with the general population he would be crying to get put in a cell by himself. This man is so arrogant it is sickening.

Four years for murdering someone is already too light, and he's whining about that?

This disgusting murderer must absolutely give news of him just in every damned moment!?!?! Just he cannot simply rot in jail as he does deserve!?!?!! Then, WTF "improper exclusion" is this disgusting murderer talking about???!!!! No violations he suffered, he made violations and was found guilty unanimously from all 12 jurors!!!!! Murderer has undergone a fair trial, the judge was extremely correct!!!! Probably he filed appeal thinking he has still to do with greedy unnatural mother Katherine and her worthy husband Joe which refused restitution so he can make money in the future!!! Let this disgusting murderer rot in jail and please make sure he finally shut up until he rots in hell!!!!!

So what judge did he ask this of? Was it Judge Pastor? TMZ why aren't the filing of these papers on the LA Superior Court web page. This man is definitely, as another poster said, BAKA

CM you are a convicted felon that was sentenced to 4 years but because over over crowding you will only have to serve 2 yrs at most. Dear Lord man, own what you sow.

The guy helped remove a child predator from the world. He saved countless little boys, he should be given a medal and put in charge of other pedophiles as their official primary care physician. Not incarcerated.
