Conrad Murray Appeals Involuntary Manslaughter Conviction

Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Dr. Conrad Murray, who was convicted last month of involuntary manslaughter in the 2009 death of Michael Jackson, has filed an appeal, according to TMZ.

The document is filed in "pro per," meaning that he's representing himself instead of using a lawyer. In the section of the document in which a lawyer usually states his or her firm's contact information, Murray lists "Men's Central Jail," as well as his booking number.

Although he is representing himself, Murray is still in communication with Nareg Gourjian, one of the lawyers who represented him in the manslaughter trial.

Gourjian has told TMZ, "This case presents a gold mine of issues for any appellate lawyer. Dr. Murray is confident that the Court of Appeal will vindicate him."

Murray was sentenced to four years behind bars for his involvement in the propofol-related death of the King of Pop.
