SHAWNEE, Okla. (AP) - A federal appeals court has rejected a former Pennsylvania university professor’s request to shorten his life prison sentence on child exploitation charges in Oklahoma.

The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver handed down the ruling Friday to 69-year-old Gary Doby of Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania. Doby pleaded guilty in Pottawatomie County in January 2013 to 18 counts of sexual exploitation of a child under 12 and other charges.

Doby, a retired early childhood development professor at Bloomsburg University, was charged with receiving images from 52-year-old Kimberly Crain, a former third-grade teacher in McCloud, of as many as 14 young girls while they were changing clothes in Crain’s classroom and at her home.

Crain pleaded guilty to child pornography and exploitation charges and was sentenced to 45 years in prison.
