    VA - Trials of John Allen Muhammad for sniper murders in VA, MD

    Sniper complains to judge about underwear in pretrial hearing


    FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) — Convicted sniper John Allen Muhammad complained to a judge Tuesday that his jailers refuse to let him wear underwear and have restricted his access to his legal files.

    A sheriff's spokeswoman denied the claims made at the conclusion of a pretrial hearing in the second capital-murder case against Muhammad. Trial is scheduled for October.

    "How does it make the courtroom safe with me coming in, no T-shirt, no underwear, no socks?" Muhammad asked Judge Jonathan Thacher.

    Muhammad has been under especially tight security since a pretrial hearing last month in which he briefly slipped out of a waist chain, giving him a sizable length of chain that could have been used as a weapon.

    He appeared in court Tuesday with his wrists cuffed closely to his sides. He winced in pain several times as deputies attempted to get him seated at the defense table. The deputies said Muhammad was resisting their efforts, but Muhammad said several times, "I'm not doing anything."

    Capt. Karen McClellan, a spokeswoman for the Fairfax County Sheriff's Office, said Muhammad has access to underwear, socks and T-shirts and is free to wear them. She said she did not know why Muhammad complained.

    Muhammad also said jailers do not allow him enough access to mail from his lawyers and only allow him to access one of his legal files at a time.

    "The excuse is, 'It's a fire hazard.' Who'll start a fire? I don't have any matches," he said. The judge told Muhammad he'd look into it.

    * * *

    Don't you get a little sick and tired of hearing these inmates ***** and moan about every little thing? Why not do a prisoner exchange say with Turkey or China and see how they treat the prisoners over there. Maybe then they'd realize how good they actually have it here with all of their "rights."

    VA - Trials of John Allen Muhammad for sniper murders in VA, MD

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6150831/

    <snipet>FAIRFAX, Va. - A judge threw out capital murder charges Friday against sniper John Allen Muhammad in the slaying of an FBI analyst in a Home Depot parking lot, saying prosecutors waited too long to bring him to trial.<snipet>

    This is sad for the victims' family.

    Sniper Trial - Juror unloads on defendant

    I'm sorry, but this made me smile and I started to think it may have been a Websleuther:


    ROCKVILLE, Maryland (AP) -- Mary Dimsey could not put aside her anger during jury selection Wednesday in the second trial of sniper John Allen Muhammad.

    She entered the courtroom, took a seat in the jury box, looked at Muhammad and said, "You are a filthy murderer. You deserve to die."

    Circuit Judge James L. Ryan admonished Dimsey and excused her. He also dismissed Elvio Leveri, who said there was "no chance" he could judge Muhammad impartially.

    I agree. However, don't forget that sometimes death penalty convictions are overturned. It would be horrible if they had to release him pending a new trial on the death penalty cases. If he's convicted in these cases, they'll just move him from one prison to another and until the conviction is affirmed one way or the other and he can be executed.

    Just in case someone's been living in a cave, the defendant was found guilty of all six charges. Life in prison - or until the other state executes him.

    John Allen Muhammad to be executed Nov 10

    I don't know whether this has ever been posted here or not. I didn't find it.



    By Staff Reports

    Published: September 16, 2009

    A Nov. 10 execution date has been set for John Allen Muhammad, one of two snipers whose murder rampage left 10 dead and a half dozen wounded in four states and the District of Columbia.

    He was sentenced to death in Virginia in 2004 for the Oct. 9, 2002, capital murder of Dean Meyers in Prince William County.

    One of Muhammad’s lawyers and the Virginia attorney general’s office said the execution date was set this morning in Prince William County Circuit Court.

    Muhammad’s accomplice, Lee Boyd Malvo, is serving life in prison.
