(WTVM) - The Fort Hood Public Affairs Office has confirmed that Inmate Nidal Hasan is now at Fort Leavenworth's United States Disciplinary Barracks for post-trial confinement.
On August 28, 2013, Maj. Nidal M. Hasan was sentenced to death following panel deliberations which lasted less than two hours at Fort Hood, Texas.
As further punishment, the panel included forfeiture of all of Hasan's pay and allowances, dismissal from the service, and a death sentence.
Because the death sentence has been imposed, the military justice system requires this case to be automatically appealed to the U.S. Army Criminal Court of Appeals (ACCA), and then to the United States Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces (CAAF).
