Judge Denies Conrad Murray’s Release During Appeals Process
LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Michael Jackson’s doctor, Conrad Murray, will stay behind bars while he appeals his involuntary manslaughter conviction.
A judge Friday denied a request from the defense to release Murray, saying he’s a flight risk.
Murray had asked to be released on his own recognizance, or on bail, because the appeal process is expected to take more than a year.
He was sentenced to four years behind bars for Jackson’s death in November.
