May 1 resentencing set for Randeep Mann

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) -

A judge has scheduled a May 1 resentencing for an Arkansas doctor convicted of plotting a bombing that nearly killed the head of the state medical board.

Randeep Mann was originally sentenced to life in prison for the 2009 attack at the home of Dr. Trent Pierce. Last year, a federal appeals court ruled that Mann deserved a resentencing, saying he shouldn't have received a sentencing enhancement based on allegations that he ordered an attack on an inmate.

Mann's resentencing had been scheduled for earlier this month but the hearing was canceled. His new hearing is 1 p.m. May 1.

Earlier this month, the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said it wouldn't reconsider its decision upholding Mann's convictions for conspiring to use a weapon for mass destruction.
