Loughner being given anti-psychotic drugs

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. -- The lawyer of Tucson mass shooting suspect Jared Loughner says federal prison officials are giving him anti-psychotic drugs, whether he wants them or not.

The defense filed an emergency motion friday asking a judge to stop them from doing so.

But the judge has twice denied their requests to be given notice before Loughner is drugged.

The suspected gunman has been in a Missouri prison medical facility since May when the court declared him mentally incompetent to stand trial.
