Bell County Officials Refuse Defense Request To Inspect Jail Facility

Following notice that the Bell County Commissioners and the US Army signed a contact to house Major Hasan in the Bell County Jail for 180 days at a cost of almost $207,000.00, the Defense requested an opportunity to examine the specific section of the jail where he would be incarcerated.  Jail officials did not immediately grant the request – instead, they said they would get back with the Defense.  Now a day later – and still there has been no approval from Jail officials.
