JUSTICE

Hasan Sentencing Begins Monday

Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan will face a military jury on Monday, who will decide if he deserves the death penalty for the shooting that killed 13 and wounded more than 30 others. During his court-martial, Hasan said he wanted the death penalty, so he could die as a “martyr.” “It’s not unlikely he will get his wish,” military law expert Eugene Fidell told CNN. Prosecutors could prepare up to 16 witnesses, including a liaison or family member for each person killed in the rampage. It’s unclear if anyone will testify on behalf of Hasan, who wanted to act as his own counsel and admitted early in his trial that he was the shooter.
