No bail for Michael Jackson doctor

2012-02-25 18:52

Los Angeles - A Los Angeles judge has refused to release Michael Jackson's doctor on bail while he appeals his conviction for involuntary manslaughter in the pop star's death.

Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor rejected Conrad Murray's bid for bail on Friday. Murray was not present.

Pastor says Murray is a flight risk and would be a danger to society if he tries to practice medicine again.

The judge says he was scared when he heard Murray say during a documentary interview that he thought it was permissible to give the anaesthetic propofol in a home setting.

Jackson died of an overdose of the drug in June 2009 while in Murray's care.
