Nidal Hasan, the confessed shooter in Fort Hood, Tx., was found guilty on all 13 counts of premeditated murder, and 32 counts of premeditated murder today. The first step toward closure for the victims and their families was taken, after the unprecedented November 2009 attack on the Army Base.
As reported by NBC-5 Dallas/Fort Worth, Monday will be the start of the sentencing phase for Hasan, who had offered no defense in the case. Neal Sher and Reed Rubinstein, attorneys for the victims, released the following statement:
“Today’s guilty verdict, rendered almost four years after the attack, is only a first, small step down the path of justice for the victims.
