Conrad Murray jail treatment 'crazy, unbelievable', says lawyer

By
Conrad Murray's former lawyer has blasted the "crazy and unbelievable" treatment of the 58-year-old in jail.

Murray was sentenced to four years in prison on November 29 after being found guilty of the involuntary manslaughter of his ex-patient Michael Jackson.

Attorney J Michael Flanagan has since expressed shock at the behaviour he witnessed when recently visiting Murray at the Los Angeles County Jail, claiming that the physician was brought out with his hands and feet shackled and then handcuffed to their table as they talked.

"It is crazy and unbelievable how [the sheriffs] are treating [Murray]," he told E!. "I've never seen something like this before [for involuntary manslaughter]."

Flanagan added that he was surprised to hear that Murray had been placed in a cell next to someone convicted of gang murder.

It is now known that Murray has requested an attorney for his upcoming appeal, despite having filed to represent himself earlier this month.
