JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) -- The Mississippi Supreme Court has denied a request to review a drug conviction from Oktibbeha County.

Dexter Campbell, 50, was convicted by a jury in May of 2011 and sentenced to 60 years in prison.

He had been indicted for possession of cocaine and marijuana with intent to distribute.

The charges against Campbell were enhanced because of two prior drug convictions.

Campbell argued the prior convictions should not have been allowed into evidence and whether the evidence supported the sentence he was given.

Last October, the Mississippi Court of Appeals upheld his conviction and sentence.

On Thursday, the state's highest court declined to review Campbell's appeal.
