Guilty Verdict for Fort Hood Shooter Nidal Hasan

Posted: Updated:

(KCEN) -- Nidal Hasan is found guilty on all counts.

A military panel finished deliberations this afternoon.

Just hours ago on Fort Hood Nidal Hasan was found guilty by a unanimous vote on 13 counts of premeditated murder and guilty for 32-counts of attempted premeditated murder.

That means the death penalty will be an option at sentencing with life in prison as the alternative.

This has been a long awaited day for those who have been so deeply and profoundly affected by the November 5, 2009 mass shooting.

Some in the courtroom were moved to tears when the verdict was finally read.

Now that a guilty verdict is in Nidal Hasan's life or death is in the hands of 13 of his peers.

The jury will next decide what consequences he'll face for taking the live of these 13 people and injuring 32 other during deployment preparations on November 5, 2009.

Since August 6th the jurors have heard testimony from 89 of the prosecution's witnesses.

The question now is how much will Hasan pay for his own actions.

And as sentencing begins victims and family members will tell the jury what the tragedy has cost them.

This case was never about what happened on November 5, in other words it's about sentencing.

Sentencing is set to begin Monday at 9:00 AM.

That phase will be Hasan's last chance to speak at trial.      

Representing himself he chose not to make a defense or make closing arguments.

Sentencing would be his first opportunity to speak without being rebutted by the government.

After sentencing the government will stop paying Hasan.
