Jackson doctor bail plea refused

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

A Superior Court Judge rejected Conrad Murray's bid for bail during a hearing today (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.
