AUGUSTA--- Former state senator Charles Walker will remain behind bars. The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals denied Walker’s appeal of his convictions and ten year prison sentence for corruption.

The three judge panel ruled any errors during Walker’s trial were harmless and that his sentence should be upheld.

Walker is serving his time at the federal prison in Estill, SC. He is scheduled for release in 2014.
