Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson's Doctor Seeking Jail Release

Michael Jackson's incarcerated physician has asked to be released from prison pending an appeal of his involuntary manslaughter conviction.
Dr. Conrad Murray filed legal documents on Friday (27Jan12) asking a judge to release him from jail, where he has spent the past three months after a jury found him guilty of administering the fatal dose of anaesthetic propofol, which cost Jackson his life in 2009.
The grounds for Murray's appeal are "improper exclusion of defence evidence and witnesses that resulted in violating the defendant's State and constitutional rights to due process, to present a defence and to the effective assistance of counsel."
Murray is asking to be released on no bail pending the result of appeal, according to Tmz.com.
He plans to live with his girlfriend Nicole Alvarez and would be willing to wear an electronic monitoring bracelet.

Murray, you are a disgrace beyond words. Michael Jackson will never be back with family again and you think YOUR rights were violated!! You've served 3 months for killing him and find jail not to your liking. How do you think Michael's family likes going to Forest Lawn to visit him?

Jacko wrote a song called tabloid junkie. He should have written one simply called Junkie. I've never known anyone bemoan and cry so much as he did at his misjustices yet carried on doing the stuff that he was crying over. If he left the boys and drugs alone, acted normal and didn't play dress up everytime he, then his kids, went out, then maybe we would consider him normal. Maybe he would have lived. As it is he bought a quack, then quacked. His early demise was enevitable with the druged lifestyle he lead. It was just a matter of when and how. Now the fans are crying over it. He was a wuss and you lot are soft in the head. Bring it on and prove me right.

...."would be willing to wear electronic monitoring tag"! how very nice of him (not). Hope Judge Pastor is overseeing this new lo-belly attempt of getting outta jail and blocks with anything further planned. Murray should have got life and instead of doing the decent thing and serving this pitiful sentence, he continues to moan and bitch - let him fester and serve the 4 years.

the judge shouldn't allow the murder to be released from prison, this monster has so much nerve and guts and trying whatever he can to avoid his punishment for killing the most wonderful human being. Every time I hear about this jerk(f**ken murray) I feel like screaming out so loud from my frustrations!!! Please Mr Michael Pastor don't let him to be free he doesn't deserved it!!!
