Disgraced Michael Jackson doctor sobs in desperate plea for medical care

Disgraced Michael Jackson doctor sobs in desperate plea for medical care
Struggling with what he says is constant pain, disgraced doctor Conrad Murray says he is losing the use of his hands and needs urgent medical care in a bizarre jailhouse plea for help.
In the three-minute call recorded on voicemail, Murray says he has been suffering from a shoulder injury from the constant use of handcuffs and manacles, and it’s ‘getting worse all the time.’
Saying that he’s been ‘in tears’ all night and calling everybody he knows, Murray implores the unknown recipient - and even asks to meet with LA County Sheriff Leroy Baca.
At separate points in the call, which was obtained this week by TMZ, Murray breaks down crying. It is not known when it was placed.
In the voicemail, Murray says he has struggled with constant pain for eight months and ‘has been in tears since 2:30 in the morning.’
Murray was sentenced to four years in jail in November 2011 after he was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the death of King of Pop Michael Jackson in 2009.
He says: ‘I can’t use my hands anymore. I could barely use my hands. Well, I can’t have no more use of my arms for washing my back.’
Murray adds: ‘I don’t know if I have the freedom and liberty to get help when I ask for it, but I’ve been asking for eight months, eight months, and what is done is so suboptimal and it’s getting worse all the time.’
on Wednesday, it was reported that tempers flared among Murray’s lawyers, who ended up in a fight at the LA County Jail.
Two lawyers representing Murray had gone to LA County Jail to see him on Tuesday after he had a health scare, complaining about pain in his right arm and shoulder.
J. Michael Flanagan, who handles Murray’s defense in the Michael Jackson manslaughter case, arrived in the afternoon with his 30-year-old son Ryan for support.
They were shortly followed by lawyer Valerie Wass who represents the disgraced doctor in the appeal of his criminal conviction and with regards the California Medical Board.
According to TMZ, Wass attempted to enter the visiting room to see Murray but was blocked and pushed by Flanagan’s son.
The two lawyers then had a heated exchange of words. Following the altercation, Wass filed a battery report against Ryan Flanagan.
Murray, who is believed to have witnessed the entire altercation, is currently serving a four-year sentence.
After a 23-day trial and several days of jury deliberation, Murray was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter on November 7, 2011, in connection with the death of Michael Jackson.
The superstar died on June 25, 2009 of propofol intoxication after going into cardiac arrest at his home in Los Angeles.
Last month, Murray filed an appeal of his conviction and as part of the motion, the 59-year-old requested to be released while his appeal is pending.
