Tyson Claim Dismissed

INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana () -- A U.S. District Court judge has denied boxer Mike Tyson's claims that he is being wrongly held because of his conviction by a county court.


Judge Sarah Evans Barker, in a ruling filed Tuesday, dismissed Tyson's writ of habeas corpus. She ordered the petition "dismissed with prejudice," meaning that Tyson cannot raise the same issues in her courtroom again.


Tyson is due to be released next May from the Indiana Youth Center.
