Nichols Loses Appeal

Terry Nichols has lost his appeal in the
Oklahoma City bombing case. The US Supreme Court today let stand Nichols' conviction and life prison sentence. The high court rejected an appeal in which
Nichols claimed his federal conviction should be overturned because prosecutors failed to prove he intended to kill anyone. He was
found guilty of conspiring to use weapons of mass destruction and other charges.
The appeal also argued that Nichols' sentence is not in keeping with federal guidelines, and that he wrongly was barred from
introducing testimony by a material defense witness. Nichols was sentenced in 1997 for convictions on involuntary manslaughter and conspiracy charges for his role in the April 19th, 1995 bombing that killed 168 people. He was acquitted of murder.
