The L.A. County D.A. is far from pleased that Dr. Conrad Murray wants judge to spring him from jail while he appeals his conviction for involuntary manslaughter.
Prosecutors assert that Murray, who was convicted and sentenced to four years in prison for his role in in the death of Michael Jackson, is a danger to society.
According to court documents, the D.A.’s office says Murray’s shown zero remorse for “reckless and criminal conduct that directly caused Michael Jackson’s death.”
In other words, the D.A. says Murray just doesn’t get it, a key point of their argument, as they say he could engage in the same conduct again if he’s set free.
The D.A. also claims Murray is a flight risk who is terrified of jail and who no longer has strong ties to California now that his medical license has been revoked.
As for Murray’s grounds for appealing the conviction, the D.A. claims they bogus – the judge’s decision to exclude Dr. Arnold Klein’s testimony in particular.
Klein gave MJ Demerol shots in the months preceding his death, but the D.A. says no traces of the drug were found in MJ’s body at the time of his death.
Thus, there’s no evidence to suggest Murray’s conviction was unfounded, at least in the eyes of the people who put him away … and probably everyone else.
