Conrad Black bail plea rejected

Editor & Publisher is reporting that Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens has turned down former Daily Telegraph owner Conrad Black's request to be freed from a Florida prison while he appeals his fraud conviction to the high court.
Lord Black has served nearly 17 months of a 6 and-a-half-year prison term. In May the court agreed to consider overturning Black's conviction in July 2007 on charges he siphoned off millions of dollars belonging to Hollinger International when he was chief executive. The case will be heard in the autumn.
