Dr. Conrad Murray

Denied Freedom

During Manslaughter Appeal

2/24/2012 5:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0224_murray_BN_01
Dr. Conrad Murray was just shot down by a judge, denying him bail while he appeals his manslaughter conviction in the death of Michael Jackson.

During today's hearing, Judge Michael Pastor found Murray is still a flight risk because he does not have significant property or family ties here in Los Angeles.

Judge Pastor also believes Murray is a danger to society -- citing the NBC documentary, in which Murray fails to show any remorse for MJ's death.

Pastor said "it scares me" that Murray believes it's okay to use Propofol in a home setting -- and insists he could pose a danger to the safety of other people if he were released.

Murray had previously filed a motion asking for bail so he could spend time with his family while he awaits the outcome of his appeal.

Murray is hoping to overturn his manslaughter conviction on grounds he never had a chance to prove Michael killed himself  due to stress ... among other reasons.

Murray's appellate attorney Valerie Wass says she believes Murray is a "scapegoat," who's being blamed for Michael's death because there's no one else to target.

ROFLMAO, didn't expect anything different. Guess acting the ditz and flinging your hair around on the witness stand as if you were auditioning for a movie role (most likely a porn flick) doesn't impress. Ok, I will be laughing all day. Big frigging crybaby shut up and do your time. And TMZ, you seriously need to quit calling him a Dr, he is now just plain Mr., remember?

UPYOURS:


Totally agree with You! But it does not surprise me that Judge Pastor Denied Murray. I just wish that I could have seen it from start to finish. Because if the "Instrument" was there then she probably would have done another Gem move or statement as she did in the trial itself. And I would have paid to see the look on Murray's face when Judge Pastor tore into him again!!
