Appeals court orders resentencing for Randeep Mann

Posted By on Thu, Dec 6, 2012 at 12:58 PM

Randeep Mann, the Russellville doctor convicted of responsibility for a bomb that nearly killed Trent Pierce of West Memphis, the chairman of the state Medical Board, should be resentenced, a federal appeals court ruled today.

The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said that Mann, who had been sentenced to life, shouldn't have received an enhanced sentence based on allegations he ordered the assault of an inmate. That detail, which never came up in Mann's trial, shouldn't have been referenced in a pre-sentencing report, the court said.

The court also said that Mann's two weapons convictions amounted to double jeopardy and ordered one of them tossed.

Among those in jails are a disproportionally high number of people with mental health and substance abuse disorders, and throughout the correction system, there is a dearth of treatment programs. Meanwhile, the state Parole Board is keeping more and more inmates in prison beyond the date they are eligible for parole.

    Growth in rental housing has far outpaced growth in the housing market in recent years in Central Arkansas and that's likely to continue, according to a new report by Metroplan, the regional planning organization. Three percent fewer people in the region (i.e., the six counties that comprise the Little Rock-North Little Rock-Conway metropolitan statistical area) owned homes in 2014 than they did in 2010; nationally, 1.2 percent do. Meanwhile, rental housing has grown by 7 percent in Central Arkansas and 9 percent nationally.
