LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A federal judge says the woman convicted of conspiracy and aiding and abetting in the bombing that nearly killed the head of the Arkansas State Medical Board must surrender to U.S. Marshals in December to begin serving her sentence.
U.S. District Judge Brian Miller issued an order Thursday that says Sangeeta "Sue" Mann must surrender on Dec. 3 to begin serving her 1-year prison sentence. She has been free pending her appeal, but the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld her conviction in July.
Prosecutors claimed she hid documents as authorities investigated her husband, Randeep Mann, in the February 2009 bombing at the home of Dr. Trent Pierce.
Randeep Mann was convicted in the bombing and sentenced to life in prison.
