Dr. Conrad Murray has just filed legal docs asking a judge to release him from jail pending appeal.
Murray claims in his legal docs he has a legitimate basis to appeal his manslaughter conviction. Among the grounds for appeal — “improper exclusion of defense evidence and witnesses that resulted in violating the defendant”s State and constitutional rights to due process, to present a defense and to the effective assistance of counsel.”
Murray”s lawyer also says, “He has exhausted virtually all of his available resources.”
Murray is asking to be released on no bail pending the appeal.
