The Federal Appeals panel in Little Rock upheld the convictions of Doctor Randeed Mann, but did agree that his sentence had been miscalculated in the earlier decision. Namely, the panel stated the doctor’s prison sentence should not have included the charge of assaulting an inmate while he was in jail awaiting trial, because that was a separate crime.

Mann, age 54 at the time of his sentencing, was found guilty of a bombing that almost killed the Arkansas State Medcial Board, Doctor Trent Pierce, in 1999 in Memphis. Doctor Pierce was severely injured in the blast, and lost an eye.
