LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) -- The doctor convicted of bombing the Arkansas medical board's chief has been ordered to pay more than $1 million in restitution.
The amount is less than prosecutors asked for from Randeep Mann. But Mann's attorneys won an argument over how much Mann should pay Dr. Trent Pierce for lost income due to the attack.
Pierce was blinded in one eye in the 2009 bombing at his West Memphis home and prosecutors argued that he deserved more than $800,000 for future lost income. Attorneys for Mann estimated future losses at about $123,000.
U.S. District Judge Brian Miller said in a ruling Friday that he wasn't satisfied with either estimate, but chose Mann's because both sides could agree to that amount.
Mann is serving a life sentence for the bombing.
