Michael Jackson's ex-doctor files appeal

Sunday, April 28, 2013



US: Michael Jackson's jailed former doctor filed an appeal Monday against his conviction for involuntary manslaughter over the US star's 2009 death.

Conrad Murray said prosecutors failed to prove the self-styled King of Pop was on a propofol drip the day he died from an overdose of the powerful sedative, which he was using to treat chronic insomnia. In a 231-page appeal filed by his lawyers in Los Angeles, he also alleged that the original trial judge excluded critical testimony used to convict him in November 2011.


"The jury was not allowed to learn that when Jackson died, he owed (concert promoter) AEG close to $40 million, there were more than 30 lawsuits pending against him and he owed millions of dollars" to US tax authorities, it said.
