JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - The state Court of Appeals has upheld Timothy Stratton’s conviction of sexual battery involving his wife’s granddaughter.

Stratton was convicted of two counts in 2012 in Lee County. He was sentenced to two consecutive life terms.

Prosecutors say Stratton committed the crimes against a 13-year-old girl in 2010. The girl testified at Stratton’s trial.

Prosecutors say the girl is mentally challenged with the mental abilities of a 6-year-old.

The Appeals Court on Tuesday rejected all of Stratton’s arguments on appeal.
