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.
