Dr. Conrad Murray , who was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter last November in the death of Michael Jackson , has asked to be released from jail on his own recognizance as he appeals his conviction. His attorney filed court papers in Los Angeles on Friday, arguing, among other things, that "Mr. Jackson was an uncooperative patient who made decisions and demands based upon his particular needs." The attorney also says Murray's sentence is severe, and that he is isolated in a solitary cell.
A hearing regarding the request is scheduled for February 24. Murray is currently serving a four-year jail sentence.
