OKTIBBEHA COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) — An Oktibbeha County man will remain in prison for having sex with a 17-year-old girl and possessing sexually revealing pictures of her.

The state Court of Appeals today rejected claims by 48-year-old Joe Cane that he didn’t understand his plea and that his lawyer was ineffective

Cane pleaded guilty to the charges in February 2010 and was sentenced to eight years in prison.

He has four years remaining to serve.
