WEST MEMPHIS, AR (KAIT) -

A Crittenden County jury has ordered a doctor convicted in a car bombing to pay $122.5 million to his victim.

Randeep Mann is serving life in prison for the 2009 bombing that seriously injured Dr. Trent Pierce of West Memphis and left him blind in one eye.

According to Arkansas Business, a jury on Tuesday ordered Mann to pay $17.5 million in damages for the injuries and $105 million in punitive damages.

Prosecutors claimed Mann targeted Pierce, who was the chairman of the Arkansas State Medical Board, after he lost some of his drug-prescribing privileges.

Mann was convicted in 2010. He is currently being held in a high-security federal prison in Indiana.
