LOS ANGELES (AP) - A state attorney says an appeal by the doctor convicted of causing Michael Jackson's death should be rejected because there were no errors made during the criminal case that warrant overturning a jury's verdict.
Supervising Deputy Attorney General Victoria B. Wilson wrote in a response to Conrad Murray's appeal that the former cardiologist's own lawyers forfeited several opportunities to object to a judge's rulings in the case.
The filing also states that the rulings were not errors, and if they were decided differently it would not have changed the case's outcome.
Murray in April appealed his four-year sentence for involuntary manslaughter, arguing a judge made multiple mistakes.
His attorney Valerie Wass said the state's filing overlooked several of her arguments and she will address those in another filing.
