Dr Conrad Murray requests jail release

Dr Conrad Murray has asked to be released from jail.

The 58-year-old physician was sentenced to four years behind bars for the involuntary manslaughter of Michael Jackson, who died two years ago from acute Propofol intoxication.

Murray appealed his conviction last month and is now requesting that a judge release him from jail on no bail.

TMZ reports that Murray believes he had an unfair trial.

"[During the trial there was] 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," the legal documents read.

Murray is reportedly living in solitary confinement under maximum security conditions.

If granted release from jail as requested in his appeal, Murray would wear an electronic monitoring bracelet.

He is planning on living with Nicole Alvarez, the mother of his children.

Murray stated he would take up employment to support his family.

His medical license has been revoked and it is unknown what job he plans on pursuing.

The former heart surgeon will represent himself through the appeal process.
