Rocky Houston raised a number of issues in the appeal of his federal firearms conviction.
They were all rejected Monday by the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals, which upheld the conviction.
That means Houston, 55, will remain behind bars. He’s serving his nine-year sentence at the Federal Correctional Institution in Ashland, Ky.
The conviction stems from his possession of firearms in Roane County.
In 2010, Houston was convicted in Roane County Criminal Court of felony evading arrest.
