WASHINGTON (WTVA) -- The U. S. Supreme Court will not review the guilty plea and sentence of a Holly Springs man charged with preparing and filing a false tax return.

Thelbert Lamont Lesure, 42, pleaded guilty in February of 2012 to one count of a 21-count indictment accusing him of knowingly preparing and submitting the false returns to the IRS.

Lesure was sentenced to 36 months in prison, three years probation and ordered to repay nearly $105,000.

He later appealed the sentence to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans who upheld the judges decision.

This week, the court was notifed by the U. S. Supreme Court they would not review the appeal.
