Attorneys for Murray are pleading with a judge to release him from the L.A. County Jail because he could die because of the immense toll being incarcerated is taking on his body.
Here’s the catch: Unlike Mayweather, who unsuccessfully bid to to receive house arrest for the remainder of his 87-day sentence in a Las Vegas jail, Murray seeks to be sent to prison, where he believes he’ll get better care.
Murray’s lawyer told TMZ, he wants to serve out his time in a major facility because he’s being treated like terribly in L.A. County jail — getting fresh air once a month, and fresh underwear once a week.
As a result of the alleged deprivation, Murray contends his health is failing — his hair, nails, and skin are gnarly … and he’s been suffering from a constant headache over the last few weeks.
Murray says he’s never gotten headaches in the past — and is worried it might be a brain tumor.
TMZ reported Murray asked to see a doctor, but got shuffled around and did not receive medical attention.
Murray told his attorney, Valerie Wass, “I may not make it out of here alive. This is a very dangerous place. I’m in here dying. The system is intent on killing me.”
