Michael Jackson - Prosecutors Want Murray To Remain In Jail During Appeal

Los Angeles prosecutors are urging a judge to deny a request for freedom from Michael Jackson's incarcerated physician as he appeals his involuntary manslaughter conviction.
Dr. Conrad Murray filed legal documents last month (Jan12) asking to be released from jail, where he is currently serving a four-year sentence after a jury found him guilty of administering the fatal dose of anaesthetic Propofol, which cost the King of Pop his life in 2009.
He is asking to be released on bail or placed under house arrest at his girlfriend Nicole Alvarez's home pending the result of his appeal - and he's even willing to wear an electronic monitoring bracelet.
But authorities argue Murray poses a flight risk because there is "complete uncertainty" over whether he would actually stay in California or try to head elsewhere.
They also claim the physician doesn't deserve to be freed because he has shown no remorse for his actions.
In court papers, prosecutor David Walgren and Deborah Brazil state, "Based on his failure to accept responsibility for the decisions he made, his complete lack of remorse and lack of insight into the danger of his criminally negligent conduct, he remains a danger to the community."
The case is due to be heard in court on Friday (24Feb12).

Why can't this sorry excuse for a human just 'get on with it' - I mean it's not like he's serving life (which he should be for murder). I'm sick of reading about him and his sorry ass - do us all a favour Murray, and find a rope.....

YES he is a danger to some ..not to mention his girlfriend was receiving the dangerous drugs that conrad killed Michael with..and she had no problems accepting them!! he does not need to be there with his partner in crime!!!! he really should be in prison forever for killing Michael Jackson !!! and we still dont know the whole story about the murder!!!!!! he hasnt told the world the truth!!! he probably put MJ out and then killed him!! Michael Jackson just needed to rest and sleep he was not wanting drugs!! like whitney houston and anna nicole smith and amy winehouse!!! he probably kept MJ high against his will!!! he is another one that came out of no where who is he anyways???

GOODY!! Not only is he a flight risk, he's also a safety risk. Michael Jackson fans as much as they might try not to, they would hunt him down and they can not be responsible for their actions. This man proves he should stay right where he is because he has yet to realize or understand that he did anything wrong to someone who didn't deserve his treatment that everyone loved. So if he only want ppl to see how stupid he is then his stupid a$$ shouldn't get out for the entire 4 yrs. I really hope that the LAPD can find a way to keep him in for the entire sentence, because I'll bet if MJ had been found guilty on those bogus charges they would have made certain that he wouldn't have got a shorter sentence!!

A four year sentance for Conrad Murray is a slap on the wrist. I don't understand the laws. If someone can get a five year sentance for downloading a Michael Jackson song from the internet, how does this animal get away with four years for killing MJ. It is almost certain he will be out of prison in less than four years. Then he can go home and live with Nicole like nothing happened. House arrest, what a joke.

Every time i hear about Murray I feel like throwing out on him, what a f**ken guts he has!, he still thinks that he is innocence .despite his conviction. I just hope the judge won't listen to him and won't let him go from prisone. The jail where he is now is the RIGHT PLACE FOR THE MURDER!!!(murray)
