United States Supreme Court rejects defense appeal in Utah polygamy case

On Feb. 26, the United States Supreme Court refused to hear the appeal of a Hildale police officer convicted of bigamy and two counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor in 2003. The charges were filed after Rodney Holm purportedly took an underage female as his polygamous wife.

The U.S. Supreme Court justices declined, without comment, to review the defendant's appeal on Monday.

Last year, the Utah Supreme Court rejected Holm's appeal and ruled that criminal prosecution in the case did not violate the defendant's constitutional rights.
