Hasan found in contempt of court for the third time

Posted:

FORT HOOD - Alleged Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan is being held in contempt for the third time after showing up to court on Thursday with a full beard.

Hasan has been told to shave multiple times and has received three fines totaling $3,000 for showing up with the beard that is against military standards.

A judge told Hasan at a previous hearing that if he has not clean shaven by the time the trial started, he (the judge) would shave his beard off himself.

Hasan was kicked out of the courtroom for the fourth time at Thursday's hearing and forced to watch the proceedings from a closed-circuit television in a trailer located outside the courtroom.

In court today, attorneys on both sides plan to discuss expert witnesses they may want to call in. One potential witness, Evan Kohlmann, is a terrorism expert who has studied the shooting and has taken the stand for the government in dozens of terrorism cases.

Hasan's trial is scheduled for August 20.
