Mehserle's attorneys seeking bail appeal


Los Angeles County court officials tell the San Francisco Chronicle Monday that Johannes Mehserle will appear for a bail hearing on Dec. 3.

/*Mehserle*/ was sentenced Nov. 5 for last year's fatal shooting of /*Oscar Grant*/ on an Oakland train platform.

The judge threw out a separate conviction for intentionally firing a gun saying he believed Mehserle's testimony that the former officer had meant to use his Taser instead of his handgun.

With credit for time served, Mehserle could be eligible for release in about seven months.
