Fort Hood Hearing Won't Include Defense Evidence

Tuesday, 09 Nov 2010 07:48 PM

 

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The defense doesn't plan to present evidence when a military hearing resumes next week for an Army psychiatrist charged in last year's deadly shooting rampage at Fort Hood.

Defense attorney John Galligan said Tuesday that the government offered "no surprises" in presenting its case in the Article 32 hearing for Maj. Nidal Hasan.

Dozens of soldiers testified about the rampage a year ago in a medical building on the Central Texas Army post.

The hearing is to resume briefly Monday before closing. A decision will be made later on whether Hasan will face court-martial on 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder.

Military law experts say it's not unusual for the defense to present no evidence during such hearings.
