Fort Hood Shooter Might Stay At Leavenworth

KSAL StaffAugust 24, 2013

Fort Leavenworth could be the destination for another high-profile military defendant — this time, the man convicted of the 2009 rampage at Fort Hood, Texas.

Jurors convicted Major Nidal Hasan of murder Friday for killing 13 people. He faces a possible death sentence or life in prison.

It’s unclear whether he would serve his sentence at the Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth, the military’s only maximum-security prison and home to its current five inmates given death sentences for their crimes.

Hasan’s medical status may complicate where he serves his punishment. He was wounded in the 2009 incident and is paralyzed from the waist down.

The Army says the Leavenworth barracks can handle inmates with medical needs.

Earlier this week, military documents leaker Bradley Manning was convicted and taken to Leavenworth.
