Fort Hood trial cost US Government 5 million dollars

 

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) _ Records show the U.S. government spent nearly $5 million to court-martial and convict an Army psychiatrist in the 2009 Fort Hood shooting rampage.

Army records showed the biggest pre-trial expense in Major Nidal Hasan's trial was more than $1 million for transportation for witnesses, jurors and attorneys. About $90,000 was spent to house the witnesses.

Hasan was convicted in August of killing 13 people during the November 5th, 2009, shooting. More than 30 people were wounded.

Records also show that in the months before his trial, Army helicopters ferried Hasan from the Bell County Jail to Fort Hood so he could work on his defense in his private office at a cost of more than $194,000.
