Federal Authorities Reportedly Plan to Move Jared Loughner Trial Out of Arizona

Judy Clark, Jared Loughner's attorney, will likely file a motion to have her client's trial moved out of Arizona.
Federal law enforcement sources told the Washington Post last night that they plan to move the trial of Jared Loughner -- the madman believed to be responsible for the January 8 shooting rampage in Tucson -- out of Arizona because of the extensive pretrial publicity the case has received.

Loughner, 22, has been charged with several counts of murder and attempted murder in an Arizona federal court, but sources tell the newspaper that federal authorities probably will move the trial to San Diego in the next few weeks.

The final decision on a change of venue will be made by Judge Roslyn O. Silver, but one law enforcement official told the WP, "It's going to happen. It's just a matter of time."

U.S. Justice Department prosecutors handling the case said this morning that they plan to try the case in Arizona, despite any motions filed by Loughner's attorney to have it moved.

"The Department plans to bring the case in Arizona and will oppose any change in venue motions," Justice Department spokesman Matthew Miller says.

Considering two of the victims of Loughner's alleged crimes are a popular Arizona congresswoman, and a federal judge from the Grand Canyon State (John Roll, who was killed in Loughner's alleged rampage), we have a feeling Loughner won't be spending too much time in an Arizona courtroom.

Jared Loughner needs to be found guilty and put to death ASAP....

For a while I thought Jared might be insane but he knew exactly what he was doing, planned it out, knew it was criminal, knew it was wrong and did it just the same. He's a nut but criminally guilty and should enjoy one last smirk as they pump the drugs into his arm.

james king of new times should be the judge in this horrendous murder trail. and then he could write a book about it and be on tv talk shows afterward and make millions on the book deal. go on a book tour then he could become a bad heroin and cocaine addict from the money he made on the book deal. then star on dr drews drug rehab show on vh1 TV. then after he gets clean he can become a born again christian and write a book about how he found god after years of drug addiction.

coz have you ever heard stand up comic Kathy Griffins on stage rants? or have you ever heard Larry the Cable guys live stage show? and you ever read a Stephen King book or saw any of his movies? all of those people make a living off of weird strange funny psycho stories and comments and they get paid millions of bucks for it and people pay to hear it and read it and watch it on a screen. and those guys are alot more weird than anything i read on new times comment blogs.

i have heard stand up comics say worse things. but since they get rich and famous from it they are called comic geniuses. but if your poor and unknown and funny weird you are a psycho mental case. but in reality both are the same. just one is rich and famous and the other is unknown and poor.

So they are both the same but not really? Got it.

There was nothing funny weird about Jared, just weird. And worse, he believed the nutty things he was saying. Sort of like the birthers, 9/11 loons and UFO nuts.

COZ if needed mental help would you reach out and offer me help? i bet not. your a typical hypocrite. thats why psycho killers like Jared do what they do. because no one really cares to help them. actually no one really cares about anyone but themselves. people just pretend to care about others. its all a sham. no one knows you when your down and out, lyrics from an old blues song.

is it now against the law to be nutty online? if not it might be in the near future of America the way things are going in this country.

yes Jared and me are kinfolk. we are from the same hillbilly DNA gene pool from the backwoods hollers of southeast Kentucky. our ma,s moms to you city folk were bad moonshine drinkers while they were pregnant. and we are the result of that.
