Feds urge court to let prison medicate Loughner

•  State Bar News     updated  2011/07/06 09:55


Federal prosecutors say an appeals court should let prison officials forcibly give anti-psychotic medication to the suspect in the Tucson shooting rampage.

The prosecutors say in court documents filed late Tuesday that the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeal should lift its order that temporarily bars prison officials from involuntarily medicating Jared Lee Loughner.

Loughner had been forcibly medicated between June 21 and July 1 at a federal facility in Missouri after prison officials determined his outbursts there posed a danger. His lawyers have objected.

Loughner pleaded not guilty to 49 charges in the Jan. 8 shooting that killed six people and wounded 13 others, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.

Loughner has been at the facility since late May after a judge ruled him mentally unfit to stand trial.
