Hassan loses bid to act as own lawyer, storms out
A frustrated and angry Muzzammil Hassan stormed out of court Thursday afternoon after Judge Thomas Franczyk denied him permission to represent himself at his murder trial.
"Do as you will," Franczyk declared after warning Hassan that by leaving he was giving up his right to face his accusers and aid in his defense.
The trial continued without him.
Hassan demanded to return to the Erie County Holding Center.
