AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- Georgia's Supreme Court has ruled a mother's argument is not going to get her out of prison.
Alana Johnson, convicted in the death of her 3-year-old child, was trying to prove the evidence against her was not enough for a conviction.
The justices said it was and that her life sentence was the correct punishment.
Johnson's son died in 2010 after ingesting his mother's methadone.
Methadone is a medication used to help people stop taking illegal drugs.
