Following a mandatory course of psychiatric medications Jared Loughner is rumored to now be competent to stand trial. Sources say that he will plead guilty to all charges:
The U.S. Attorney’s Office said it is not confirming or denying reports that Jared Loughner will plead guilty in last year’s shooting rampage outside a Tucson, Arizona, supermarket.
The attack killed six people and wounded 13 others, including then-U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
On Saturday night, the Los Angeles Times and the Wall Street Journal reported that Loughner, 23, is now mentally competent to understand the charges against him and that a status hearing on his competency, scheduled for Tuesday morning, will now be a change-of-plea hearing.
The Los Angeles Times attributed the information to “knowledgeable sources,” while the Wall Street Journal said its source was an “official familiar with the case.”
