JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) -- The Mississippi Supreme Court has denied a request to review the appeal of a Starkville man convicted for aggravated DUI.
Joshua Buckner, 25, is serving 35 years in prison after pleading guilty to three counts of aggravated DUI and one count of leaving the scene of an accident.
He is serving 35 years on the charges.
The accident happened in April of 2008 on Coliseum Boulevard on the Mississippi State campus.
Charlesy Collins, 19, of Starkville died in the accident and two other people were injured.
At the time of the accident, investigators say Buckner asked witnesses not to report the accident and then walked away from the scene.
Buckner claims the fact he was charged with multiple counts of aggravated DUI for one act of driving under the influence violates the "Double Jeopardy" clause of the U. S. Constitution.
The Mississippi Court of Appeals denied his petition in October stating the charges were not double jeopardy because one person was killed and two others were injured in the accident.
