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.

I prefer that Murray serve his entire sentence in jail. No rights and privileges for a convicted felon.

A convicted fellon in chains????? a convicted fellon being treated like a criminal? really? like what are the odds?

i'm sure there's someone in the state pen spending a longer sentence for a non murder conviction. that individual should be transported to the county jail so that Murray can serve his undercharged grossly insulting to Michael's family-fans- 4 year sentence in the State Penitentiary........where he belongs

Exclusion of evidence???? LOL! How much evidence did Murray exclude while he and the security guard removed medical supplies/etc from michael's room?

If murray had a job all he would do is not pay his morgage, not pay child support, not pay spousal support. all he would do is spend it on strippers and live off his baby mama. she must make a pretty penny stripping in order to afford murray........we all know his cheap lying behind is not footing the bill for anything legit. by not taking care of his financial obligations murray is violating his children's state and constitutional rights.

the jacksons might think it's beneath them to go after murray financially because they don't need the money. however they need to hire the best damn attorney michael's money can buy and "bury murray" so deep that he'll beg to stay locked away.......(jmo)

It was said that there is a lack of jail space and Murray would not be required to stay in -well what happened to that. I think the prosecutors pressured the jail honcho and so the system down there is flawed and corrupt. Murray does not belong in jail, as the case was overtried and a lynching. Get him out of there doing something useful instead of spending tax dollars when there is no need. He is not really a criminal but rather mal practice in his field. He had no intent to harm. keep at getting justice flannagan.

This arrogant a** still doesn't get it, does he? What does HE think he's in jail for? I don't know how he ever became a doctor, because its quite obvious he doesn't have too many active brain cells.I still can't understand why MJ ever picked him as his doctor....Murray should have been given ALOT longer sentence....

No, do not let him out. He should have been taking care of Michael instead of talking on the phone with his baby's mother. He lied, and then tried to flee with the evidence after he knew Michael was dead. Hell no, don't let him go. Right or wrong in what he was doing for and with Michael, he should have been more caring, and not just thinking about the money.
