Jared Loughner Makes His First Appearance in Court

Posted By on Mon, Jan 10, 2011 at 3:04 PM

While I wouldn't want to make the determination whether he was "smirking" or not, the Republic reports from the Phoenix courtroom where Jared Loughner and his new court appointed defense attorney, Judy Clarke, appeared this afternoon:

Jared Loughner, the Tucson man accused of shooting Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and 19 others Saturday, appeared in federal court Monday afternoon with a smirk on his lips and a red strawberry bruise on the right side of his forehead.

Loughner, 22, stood before U.S. Magistrate Lawrence Anderson and answered questions in a deep, resonant voice. He was wearing a tan detention uniform and his head looked shaven.

Anderson informed Loughner of the penalties he could face if he is found guilty of the crimes. He could receive a life or death sentence if convicted of the murders of U.S. District Judge John Roll and Gabe Zimmerman, a Giffords aide.
