Michael Jackson - Conrad Murray Representing Himself In Court After Filing Appeal

Michael Jackson's physician DR. Conrad Murray is appealing against his involuntary manslaughter conviction without the use of an attorney.
The disgraced doctor, who was sentenced to serve four years behind bars at the beginning of this week (29Nov11), is challenging the decision and he'll be representing himself in court.
Murray was found guilty of causing Jackson's 2009 death last month (Nov11) and his medical techniques were called into question in court by the prosecutors and a series of experts.
In a TV documentary which aired during the trial, it was clear Dr. Murray and his defence team lawyers were not on the best of terms and his two lead attorneys argued over how the case was going.
The bust-up led to chief attorney Ed Chernoff moving out of colleague J. Michael Flanagan's home, where he had been staying during the trial to keep costs down.
Murray was found guilty of administering the fatal dose of anaesthetic propofol, which cost Jackson his life.

Anything for a day-out of jail, eh? I doubt the courts will entertain his appeal and why now when he had ample oppertunity to speak when offered in the 1st & 2nd apperances @ court. Does this saddo excuse for a human expect the courts to revolve around him? He's lucky he's not in another country for he would be surely strung-up by his b***s.It was apparent his non-paid defense team had given up by the 2nd part of the inital trial, hey even they thought he was guilty but anything for money because money would be paid for 'any' interview relating to Michael. Murray, the rotten so and so, should hang his ugly head in shame and 'get' on with the petty sentence handed to him. In this country when one appeals sometimes the court of appeal can actually increase the inital sentence - can the US courts do likewise? hope he rots in hell.

to peepsluv, i dont know about extending the sentence, however the judge can increase the fines for a myriad of reasons, including contempt of court.

the only money that is involved, it the funds he must pay the jackson children, the court for his contempt, and whatever other fines the judge deems necessary.yo! murray, they put men who dont pay support on highway chain gangs to clean up all the ka ka along the path. you can get your fresh air there, while remembering that all the money from you pathetic work cleaning the highways will go to the court and the family

Murray is an even bigger fool than we all knew he was. He got reamed for 30 minutes by a judge who was clearly so sickened by Murray that he cld hardly contain himself and now he thinks he has a chance at an appeal??? Even his attorneys gave up on him!
