Attorneys for Sangeeta "Sue" Mann filed a motion Saturday in federal court seeking an acquittal or new trial after she was convicted earlier this month. Prosecutors accused her of hiding documents from authorities who were investigating the February 2009 bombing at the home of Dr. Trent Pierce, the chairman of the Arkansas State Medical Board.
A federal jury convicted Dr. Randeep Mann for the bombing, and he faces up to life in prison. Sue Mann faces up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000 on the two obstruction convictions.
Her motion says there wasn't sufficient evidence to prove she conspired to obstruct the investigation.
