(WTVA) - A West Point man has lost an attempt to have his 105-year prison sentence overturned.
Terry Lamont Hill, 45, is serving the time for rape, kidnapping and robbery.
Hill was one of two men arrested in May 2016 after a woman was raped and the man with her robbed at an apartment complex in Starkville.
Hill was later convicted at trial and the judge ordered him to serve 105 years in prison.
Hill later appealed claiming the judge erred in not allowing him to represent himself and not allowing his attorney to withdraw from the case.
Justices say the court record showed three days before the trial, he agreed to allow his attorney to continue representing him.
They also say the evidence presented in the case supports his conviction.
Hill is serving his sentence in the East Mississippi Correctional Facility.
