Conrad Murray

Prosecutors Try to Block

Bid for Freedom

If prosecutors have their way ...Conrad Murray will stay locked up, even though an appeals court could reverse his manslaughter conviction in the death of Michael Jackson.

According to new court docs obtained by TMZ ... the California Attorney General is scoffing at Murray's bid for release pending appeal, arguing that he's totally unconvincing when he says he's not a flight risk.  Murray is claiming if he gets out he'll live with his GF/baby mama Nicole Alvarez in Santa Monica, but prosecutors are quick to point out ... he has 7 kids with 5 women, which does not exactly make him the poster child of stability.

And get this ... Murray argued that he can't flee because he's a celeb and therefore can't run and hide.  But prosecutors blanch at the doctor's argument, claiming it would be a travesty to reward him for becoming a celebrity by killing a true celebrity.

 Prosecutors also say the fact that Murray has shown no remorse is a red flag that he might continue to be a danger to the community if set free.

I Find it funny that Conrad Murray keeps playing the '' Poor Me '' '' Poor Me '' card, But he did have a hand in killing Jackson if it was by accident or if it wasn't

He needs to own up to what happen and quit blaming Micheal Jackson The Audio tape of Jackson slurring his words was just creepy and quite sad.

I am not a fan of Jackson's but that was just a sad moment for his family to listen to him and Murray was just sitting there stone faced He should not be allowed out of jail.

it's to bad that he is only in jail for 4 years if it was up to me he would get 30 Years to Life for manslaughter not just 4 year..

That's a pretty misleading statement. They can try to keep him locked up pending appeal, but if the appeals court throws out his conviction they won't have grounds to hold him anymore.

Appeal? What appeal?


To this day his lawyers have failed to file one. It is already a week past due. If not filed soon, it will most likely be dismissed by the court.

This SOB killed Jacko! if he gets released on appeal I want the judge to sentence Conrad Murray to house arrest with Corey Feldman for 6 months! that's right, he can not leave the house at all and must live with the Feld Dog at all times. After Feldman puts on all his Jacko outfits and starts doing his Jacko dance routines everyday, Conrad Murray will beg to go back to prison!!

A Son of Sam Law is any American law designed to keep criminals from profiting from the publicity of their crimes, often by selling their stories to publishers. However, this is not in the same manner of asset forfeiture, which is intended to seize assets acquired directly as a result of criminal activity. Where asset forfeiture looks to remove the profitability of crimes by taking away money and assets gained from the crime, Son of Sam laws are designed so that criminals are unable to take advantage of the notoriety of their crimes. Such laws often authorize the state to seize money earned from deals such as book/movie biographies and paid interviews and use it to compensate the criminal's victims. The term "Son of Sam" refers to the nickname of serial killer David Berkowitz, the subject of a notorious 1978 murder case.

In certain cases a Son of Sam law can be extended beyond the criminals themselves to include friends, neighbors, and family members of the lawbreaker who seek to profit by telling publishers and filmmakers of their relation to the criminal. In other cases, a person may not financially benefit from the sale of a story or any other mementos pertaining to the crime—if the criminal was convicted after the date lawmakers passed the law in the states where the crime was committed.

If any of you haters had a brain between you, you would know by now who Michael Jackson is. He isn't no child molester either. He is the kindest, smartest, and caringest man this day and age has ever known. You haters are like a disease that won't get cured because all of you are to f'in lazy to do research before spouting off your mouth about what Michael Jackson is. Your ignornace proves what you haters are. Take a big , long look in the mirror and then lets see what you have to say about yourself. Michael Jackson is as innocent as a newborn baby. Always has been and always will be. He has more class in his little finger than you hater pieces of dog poop have in all your bodies combined.

To think Michael Jackson is a child molester is like thinking someone is a police officer just because you see them wearing a police uniform, carrying a gun, badge and official police ID, talking with his friend, the chief of police, as he arrests someone and puts them into his police car and receiving a well publicized award for the arrest.
