Conrad Murray, the man convicted of involuntary putting Michael Jackson in his final resting place is demanding he get his license back to practice medicine.
Originally given a four-year prison sentence, he was released just after two years for good behavior. And he’s wasting no time trying to get back in the saddle so he can pass out some more pills.
Conrad Murray accuses the Texas Medical Board of prematurely revoking his license. The former Houston cardiologist was released from a California jail this week after serving less than two years for involuntary manslaughter.
Murray was convicted in 2011 of giving Jackson a lethal overdose of a powerful anesthetic. But in a lawsuit filed in Austin this week, Murray claims his conviction isn’t final in California until his appeals are exhausted.
Murray states in an affidavit that he’s more than $400,000 in debt and can’t afford to pay court costs.
TMZ caught up with Murray upon his release and he told them the late Michael Jackson would be “appalled on how he was being treated.” Equally appalling is the struggle ‘fro Murray is sporting while out and about with his son.
No matter if it was a premature revocation or not, who’s really going to be his patient at this point? Take a gander at his first taste of freedom and the video with his comments in the gallery.
