The Michigan Court of Appeals has rejected a teacher's request for a new trial in a sexual assault case involving a student.
A jury convicted William Bryan Polston of six counts of criminal sexual conduct - three in the 1st degree and three in the 3rd - in January of 2011.
Police and prosecutors say Polston had a sexual relationship with a girl from 2002 to 2004, when the girl was 14 through 16-years-old.
Polston had several reasons for asking the court to review his case:
* He says a juror was improperly removed
* He says new evidence provided him with an alibi which would have changed the outcome of the case
* He says evidence of crimes committed in another county should not have been admissible in his Eaton County trial
* He says he wasn't allowed to introduce a piece of evidence in his trial
But a three judge panel rejected the arguments, saying the juror was familiar with and talked to someone who sat with the defendant's family. They also say the new evidence didn't meet legal tests and wouldn't have changed the outcome of the trial. The judges say Polston's actions in another county were relevant to the case. And they say the piece of evidence Polston wanted to admit would not have hurt the credibility of the witness in question.
Polston remains behind bars at a prison in Saginaw. Barring a successul appeal, he'll remain behind bars through at least January of 2026 and could stay there through January of 2041.
