Doctor resentenced to life in federal prison for bombing chief of AR Medical Board

Star Tribune / Associated Press, May 2, 2013

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - A resentencing proceeding Wednesday for a former doctor convicted in the bombing of the leader of the Arkansas Medical Board left him with his original life sentence but afforded his lawyer a chance to again claim his client is innocent. Randeep Mann, 54, was convicted in 2010 of conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction and other charges following the February 2009 bombing of Dr. Trent Pierce outside his West Memphis home. Pierce was nearly killed and suffered numerous injuries. He was blinded in one eye, left partially deaf and his face is badly scarred after a bomb duct taped to a spare tire exploded in his driveway.
