WINSTON COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) – A Winston County man has lost his attempt to have a conviction on drug charges overturned.
John Gale, 37, is serving eight years for the sale of meth.
The transaction with a confidential informant was videotaped.
Gale claimed the evidence at trial didn’t support his conviction and the judge was wrong not to allow a jury instruction questioning the credibility of the informant.
The Mississippi Court of Appeals upheld his conviction in September and denied a request Tuesday to rehear the appeal.
