COLUMBUS, Miss. (WTVA) - A former high school music teacher in Columbus was given an appeal bond two months after being convicted of a sex crime.

Michael Jackson was recently convicted and sentenced to seven years in prison in May.

A judge gave the $50,000 bond Friday morning, along with conditions to include a monitoring device and registration as sex offender.

Jackson has not bonded out as of this time.

District Attorney Scott Colom says an appeal hearing can occur in as little as eight months.
