Convicted Lubbock kidnapper Wilcox denied by Supreme Court

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A Lubbock man will not get his day before the U.S. Supreme court. It's new for daybreak today.  Kenneth Wilcox was convicted of kidnapping in late may of 2009.  Federal prosecutors say he lied to the parents of three children -- saying he would take them to Six Flags in Arlington.  Instead he took them to Southeast Oklahoma.  Wilcox says he had permission to take the kids. 

On Friday the supreme court posted notice in local court records that it will not hear his case.  That has the same effect as denying his appeal.  Wilcox is serving a 40 year prison sentence.
