Fort Hood

First Hearing for Nidal Hasan

Army Major Nidal Hasan will have his first court hearing in his hospital room Saturday, his attorney said. Hasan has been recovering at the Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio since the Fort Hood shootings November 5 left 13 dead and more than 30 wounded. The hearing is to determine whether the Army psychiatrist will be put in pre-trial confinement. Usually that would mean jail, but because Hasan is paralyzed and still needs medical attention, he would remain in intensive care.
