OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) -- A man serving 25 years in prison for a 2011 burglary in Lafayette County has lost his attempt to have his conviction overturned.
Stanley Luster, 52, was arrested in February of 2011 after a woman notified police he had taken a television from an apartment in Oxford.
He was later convicted by a jury during a trial in August of 2011 and sentenced under habitual offender laws to 25 years in prison.
Luster challenged just what the witness saw and evidence recovered by police investigators who charged him in the case.
He also claims the judge served as an assistant district attorney in a previous indictment against Luster and should not have heard the case.
On Tuesday, the Mississippi Court of Appeals upheld his conviction.
