Robert Durst will be staying in jail for the foreseeable future. Now that authorities have Durst in their grasp, they aren't going to let him go any time soon.
A Louisiana magistrate denied bond, also known as bail, for Robert Durst at a bail hearing in New Orleans. Durst was arrested recently after "The Jinx," an HBO documentary, showed him allegedly confessing to killing a California woman and his wife. He was also charged with illegally owning weapons and drugs. Prosecutors argued that Durst is a flight risk, and the magistrate agreed. Durst's lawyer, Dick DeGuerrin, didn't put up much of a fight and did not seek bail.
When can a judge refuse to grant bail?
