JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - The Mississippi Supreme Court declined Thursday to hear an appeal from Eric Jerome Boone, who is serving a five-year sentence on charges that he converted insurance premium payments to his personal use.

Prosecutors say Boone, a former insurance agent in Olive Branch, collected premium payments in the amount of $3,452 and failed to deposit them, using them instead for his own use. He was convicted in 2010 in DeSoto County.

The state Court of Appeals upheld Boone’s conviction and sentence in February.
