    GARLAND CITY, Ark. (AP) - A federal appeals court says it won't review the case of a former Garland City mayor convicted of mail fraud.

    Yvonne Dockery is serving a 30-month sentence at a federal prison in Florida. The Texarkana Gazette reports (http://is.gd/NpHXiw) that Dockery has accused judges, prosecutors, law enforcement and the media of a conspiracy that led to her conviction.

    Dockery was convicted of three counts of mail fraud in July 2010. Prosecutors accused her of creating phony invoices for fire equipment that never existed.

    The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued a brief order last week denying Dockery's request for a review of her convictions.
