LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Los Angeles County prosecutors are opposing Dr. Conrad Murray's bid for release on bail while he appeals his conviction of involuntary manslaughter in Michael Jackson's death.

In a written motion, they say Murray would be a danger to the community and a flight risk if he was out of jail.

Murray was found guilty after a trial focusing on his use of the anesthetic propofol as a sleeping medication for the superstar. Jackson died of an overdose of the drug in June 2009. Murray is serving a four-year jail sentence. His attorneys have asked for his release either on bail or on his own recognizance with an electronic monitoring ankle bracelet.

Prosecutors say Murray practiced a very dangerous and experimental form of medicine on Jackson and should stay behind bars.
