28 October 2013 Last updated at 22:17 GMT

Conrad Murray, the former doctor convicted of causing Michael Jackson's death, has been released from jail.

The former cardiologist served less than two years of a four-year sentence after being convicted in November 2011 of involuntary manslaughter.

He is appealing against his conviction. His lawyer Valerie Vass spoke to the BBC to explain the grounds on which his appeal is based, and dismissed fans angry with Murray over the singer's death.
