LOWNDES COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) – A Noxubee County man has lost an attempt to have his conviction for robbery and taking of a motor vehicle thrown out on appeal.
Quincy Holmes, 23, of Brooksville, is serving 25 years in prison after pleading guilty to the charges in 2013.
He was arrested by Columbus police after a tip about a man wanted for robbing the M&M convenience store on Bell Avenue.
Investigators say he robbed the store shortly after a clerk did not sell him beer because he was underage.
Holmes filed an appeal claiming he was never told by his attorney he could appeal his conviction following the guilty plea.
On Tuesday, the Mississippi Court of Appeals denied his claim saying under state law he is not entitled to a direct appeal because he pleaded guilty.
