Sainz appeal postponed

The appeal trial of Bernard Sainz ("Doctor Mabuse") has been postponed to November 5, 2009, by an appeal court in Paris yesterday. Sainz had been convicted to three years imprisonment by a criminal court in 2008 - a sentence he is currently serving.

Sainz, a former horse breeder turned cycling soigneur, was found guilty of practicing medicine illegally and administering banned substances. He appealed the decision in hopes of gaining a shorter sentence.
