Washington: Dr Conrad Murray has filed an appeal challenging his conviction for involuntary manslaughter in the case of the death of Michael Jackson’s death.

Murray, who was recently sentenced to four years in prison for the pop star’s death, will be representing himself instead of using a lawyer.

On the portion of the document where a lawyer will usually state his or her firm’s contact information Murray lists ‘Men’s Central Jail’ and includes his booking number.

Though representing himself, the doctor is still communicating with Nareg Gourjian, one of the lawyers who represented him during his manslaughter trial.

“This case presents a gold mine of issues for any appellate lawyer. Dr Murray is confident that the Court of Appeal will vindicate him,” Tmz.com quoted Gourijian as saying.
