JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) - The Mississippi Supreme Court will not review a sexual battery conviction in Oktibbeha County.
Yoginder Dandass, 50, is serving a 20-year sentence following his conviction in 2015.
Dandass was accused of abusing a female from the time she was 11 years old until she was 17.
Dandass had filed five claims in his appeal including the evidence presented, mostly the testimony of the victim, was not enough to support the verdict.
He also claims there were errors made by prosecutors in closing arguments and a judge was wrong not to allow an expert witness to testify in his behalf.
The Mississippi Court of Appeals upheld the conviction in June.
On Thursday, the state's highest court denied his request to review the appeal.
