BELTON, Texas (AP) - The civil attorney of the ex-Army officer sentenced to death for his bloody shooting rampage at Fort Hood is calling his conviction and sentence unfair.
John Galligan is a former defense attorney for former Maj. Nidal Hasan, whom a military jury condemned to death Wednesday for the deaths of 13 people. The Belton attorney tells The Associated Press he "was very sad to hear the result," which he says "just emphasizes to me how unfair the death penalty is when applied in the military setting."
Hasan fired his attorneys to represent himself and made almost no defense during his three-week court-martial.
Nevertheless, Galligan says he doesn't think Hasan received a fair trial and is confident the sentence will be reversed on appeal.
