JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) -- A Columbus man will serve his thirty-two year sentence.
The Mississippi Court of Appeals denied rehearing Joel Jones,27, aggravated assault case.
Jones was convicted by a Lowndes County jury of two counts of aggravated assault for shooting two men during the Summer of 2012.
Court documents show Jones shot Zach Johnson and Tomarcus Thomas following a fight on Ash Street.
Johnson was permanently blinded after being shot in the face with a shotgun.
Thomas, who was near Johnson when the shotgun was fired, was injured after a pellet from the shotgun hit him in his upper lip.
Jones claims someone else shot the men and that the trial judge erred with a jury instruction along with other instructions.
The Court of Appeals denied a rehearing of Jones' case on January 9 because last year they ruled the trial court made no mistakes.
