Conrad Murray gets bigger cell, but still unhappy

A day after Conrad Murray's lawyers complained he was suffering a "slow death" in a tiny jail cell, the doctor was moved to a slightly larger one, his lawyer said.

Lawyers for the doctor convicted in Michael Jackson's death warned the Los Angeles County sheriff in a letter Wednesday that Murray was suffering possibly life-threatening and permanent injuries from almost a year in a 5-foot-by-7-foot cell.

Authorities transferred Murray to a 8-foot-by-10-foot cell of the Los Angeles County jail Thursday, "but it's not a good thing," his lawyer Valerie Wass said.

Murray was found guilty of causing Jackson's death on June 25, 2009, by administering a deadly overdose of sedatives and the surgical anesthetic propofol in what he told police was an attempt to cure the singer's insomnia.

The new cell has a solid door with only a small window, unlike the old cell that was open with bars that Murray could prop his long legs on when he stretched, Wass said.

    Hey, chrissy, good afternoon!
    I, personally, do not care that Conrad Murray is unhappy with his current living situation; it's a position he earned, after all.

    No. He earned that position by going to med school for 8 years. Then he went-out and found some people who were willing to pay extra for expensive but legal knock-offs of cheap street drugs.

    maybe they could give him a little something to help him sleep, and that would make him feel a bit more comfy.

    Michael NEVER claimed to have invented the "Moonwalk" ever. He said very specifically that he DIDN´T invent it! People need to listen to what he says instead of thinking he would claim things like that... Michael would never take credit for another persons invention, but he DID refine it and do it better than anyone....Tired of Michael never getting any credit for anything...don´t know why he bothered trying at all seeing how he never ever got any credit for a single thing in his life!

    How long has he been sentenced for? Seems a bit harsh.
