Conrad Murray - Conrad Murray launches appeal bid

Dr. Conrad Murray has launched a second appeal over his conviction for the death of Michael Jackson.

The disgraced physician - who was sentenced to four years jail for the involuntary manslaughter of the King of Pop, who died of acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009 - has requested he be allowed to leave prison, where he has spent the last 13 months, while the legal process examining his case is being examined, documents obtained by website TMZ show.

The medic insists he is not a flight risk because he has a young child who lives in Los Angeles, and claimed he does not pose a danger to the community. In the papers, he stresses his belief he was wrongly convicted.

The appeal bid comes less than two months after Murray was denied the chance to serve the rest of his sentence under house arrest and His lawyer, Valerie Wass, said at the time: ''The Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department maintains that Dr. Murray isn't eligible for house arrest or electronic monitoring.''

Many lower risk criminals have been transferred to tagging schemes due to overcrowding in Los Angeles jails. While no reason was given for Dr. Murray's request being refused, he has previously been refused bail on account of his being assessed as a flight risk.

Murray need to serve out his full four year sentence; he had ample time to testify in court but chose not to. Michael didn't deserve to leave us in this manner; he had kids, a family and fans who will always love him. And BTW, Murray's license is merely "suspended" in NV and TX, not revoked! But guess he wouldn't care anyway and he will probably write a book and keep the profits thanks to the Jacksons waiving restitution and instead going after AEG.

Conrad Murray had his chance to tell his side and who killed MJ if he didnt but instead he his all the drugs and security tapes! but someone needs to interview him now if he wants to add to those things he has already done and who hired him to do it!!!! 4 years for murder is not near enough for taking the most exciting entertainer that ever lived and for us to never know the truth ..what was he going to do with the gallons of propofol he had at his girlfriends house ??there is alot more he is hiding!!! AND WE AS FANS WILL NEVER GET OVER THIS!!!!!!!!! LOSING THE KING OF MUSIC AND SHOWMANSHIP!!!
