The prosecutor in the Michael Jackson case opposes a bail reduction and argues that the entertainer may be planning to flee the country.

Jackson, who faces child molestation charges, is free on three million dollars bail.

According to a motion obtained by media lawyers, District Attorney Tom Sneddon's office said Jackson's immense wealth requires at least three million dollars bail.

If convicted, Jackson could face a lengthy prison sentence.

The motion said "The temptation to flee must surely be strong."

Jackson's lawyers have not been available for comment
