A Bolivian appeals court refused to release New York businessman Jacob Ostreicher, who has been jailed without charges for 18 months, instead sending his case back to a lower court.
Oestreicher appeared with Sean Penn in a press conference Wednesday in which the "Tree of Life" actor called on Bolivia's president to order Oestreicher's release, the Associated Press reported.
