LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A former Russellville doctor convicted of plotting a bombing that nearly killed the head of the state medical board is to be resentenced.
Randeep Mann is to appear before U.S. District Judge Brian Miller on Wednesday afternoon.
Mann was sentenced in 2009 to life in prison for a bombing that badly injured Dr. Trent Pierce outside his home in West Memphis. A federal appeals panel upheld Mann's convictions but ruled that the sentencing range was miscalculated because it shouldn't have included an allegation that he assaulted an inmate.
The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has since denied a request by Mann to have his appeal reheard before the full court.
Mann was convicted of conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction.
