KENNETH STARR's bid for temporary freedom has failed - the celebrity accountant has lost an appeal to have his bail reduced.
Starr is facing a lengthy prison term after he admitted embezzling $30 million (£20 million) from clients such as Uma Thurman, Martin Scorsese, and Wesley Snipes.
He pleaded guilty in September (10) to charges including wire fraud and money laundering, and is due to be sentenced in February (11).
Starr requested a reduction of his $10 million (£6.7 million) bail to enable him to be freed pending the sentencing, but on Tuesday (28Dec10) a judge refused, reports the New York Daily News.
At the same time, Federal District Judge Shira Scheindlin also turned down a U.S. attorney's request to revoke Starr's bond altogether after prosecutors argued he could flee if he's freed on bail.
