Jared Lee Loughner Appears in Court

Jared Loughner, the man suspected of shooting Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killing six other people, appeared in federal court on Monday. His head was shaved, he wore an inmate uniform, and he had a cut on his right temple. Appearing to smirk at one point, Loughner was mostly silent, but responded, “Yes,” when the judge informed him of the charges against him (which include attempted assassination, two counts of killing a federal government employee, and two counts of attempting to kill a government employee). Loughner will be held without bail. He is being represented by Judy Clarke, who also helped defend “Unabomber” Ted Kaczynski. Loughner did not enter a plea.
