Nidal Hasan collected nearly $300,000 in his military salary while awaiting trial for the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood, but his attorney said nearly all of it has been given to charity — likely making it impossible for his victims to get any of it.
If Nidal Hasan plans to welcome a death sentence as a pathway to martyrdom, the rules of military justice won't let him go down without a fight — whether he likes it or not.
The Army psychiatrist charged in the deadly Fort Hood shooting rampage nearly two years ago was scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday, his first courtroom appearance since the commander of the Texas Army post decided he would face the death penalty.
The Army psychiatrist charged in the deadly Fort Hood rampage will be tried in a military court and face the death penalty if convicted, the commanding general for the Texas military post announced Wednesday.
A military officer is expected to decide Thursday whether allowing the media and others to hear testimony next month from those who survived last year's shooting rampage at Fort Hood will jeopardize the suspect's right to a fair trial.
Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, facing 13 counts of premeditated murder, made his first in-person court appearance Tuesday, before military judge Col. James Pohl and won a request to delay the trial for four months.
Mr. Galligan said Hasan's paychecks were not deposited in a bank, but he declined to say how Hasan handled them.
The American-born Muslim had government-funded defense lawyers to help him, and Mr. Galligan said he has worked for Hasan mostly for free.
