TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The U.S. Supreme Court is refusing to review the case of an Indiana man who was convicted of child abuse for forcing his grandsons on a grueling Grand Canyon hike.

Alan Carlson admits to treating his three grandsons roughly, but denies being criminally negligent or endangering them.

Carlson was convicted on three counts of child abuse stemming from a 19-mile hike in August 2011 and served more than two years in prison.

Late last year an appeals court rejected Carlson's argument that the evidence was insufficient and that the jury wasn't instructed properly.
