WEST POINT, Miss. (WTVA) - A judge has denied an appeal bond for a man sentenced to prison in an assault on his wife.

Brian Clark, 38, is serving a 10-year sentence for the attack on Hope Imes Clark, a Starkville dentist.

The Daily Times Leader says Brian Clark asked a circuit court judge to allow him to leave prison on bond while he appealed his conviction.

He offered to give up his passport and pay for an ankle-monitoring device if he was released.

The judge denied the request and Clark is currently being held in the Kemper County Correctional Facility.
