LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — A woman convicted of conspiracy in a bombing that nearly killed the head of the Arkansas State Medical Board is appealing her order to surrender to U.S. marshals to begin serving her one year sentence.
An attorney for Sangeeta Mann filed the motion Friday in U.S. District Court in Little Rock — a day after a judge ordered that she surrender on Dec. 3. The order came after the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld Mann's conviction in July.
The motion says Mann should surrender in January at a prison chosen by the Bureau of Prisons.
Prosecutors say Mann hid documents as authorities investigated her husband, Randeep Mann, in the 2009 bombing at the home of Dr. Trent Pierce.
Randeep Mann was convicted and sentenced to life in prison.
