FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — After Maj. Nidal Hasan was convicted in the deadly 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood, he called his former lead attorney.
A military jury Friday found Maj. Nidal Hasan guilty of murder in the shooting that left 13 dead. Hasan, who represented himself after firing his legal team, will be eligible for execution in the sentencing phase that begins Monday.
His former lead attorney, John Galligan, says Hasan called him shortly after the verdict to make sure he'd heard it. Galligan says the two are set to meet later Friday at Fort Hood.
Galligan says the jury did not hear all the facts because the judge refused to allow evidence that helped explain Hasan's actions.
Galligan says, "The jury we heard from only got half the facts."
