The nation’s high court has upheld a criminal conviction that the chief justice of the Arizona Supreme Court openly feared could lead to child molesting charges against parents for routine actions.

Without comment the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday refused to review the conviction of Jerry C. Holle on charges he inappropriately touched his 11-year-old step-granddaughter. The move means the Pima County resident will not escape the 10-year prison term on charges of molestation, followed by five years of probation for sexual abuse.
