Trial For Man Plotting Terrorist Attack In Lubbock Has Been Pushed Back To May
A district judge has pushed back the trial of terrorist suspect Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari until May. It was originally scheduled for January.
Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari is accused of plotting attacks on the United States. Attorneys for Aldawsari say that he suffers from a mental disease, disorder or defect and is not mentally competent to stand trial.
The motion was unopposed by the government and Judge Cummings ordered an exam of the accused terrorist to deem whether he is fit to be tried as a terrorist. They are hoping to get a diagnosis that he was insane at the time of the offense.
Among the evidence at the time that Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari was taken into custody was emails and journal entries in which he discussed his plans to attack the United States. This according to the FBI
