Slatten Convicted
AP Thursday October 23, 2014

A former Blackwater security guard from Sparta was among four men convicted Wednesday in the 2007 shootings of more than 30 Iraqis in Baghdad.
A federal grand jury found Sparta native Nicholas Slatten guilty of first degree murder. The other three guards were found guilty of multiple counts of voluntary manslaughter, attempted manslaughter and gun violations.
The shootings on Sept. 16th, 2007, caused an international uproar over the role of defense contractors in urban warfare.
The State Department hired Blackwater to protect American diplomats in Baghdad and elsewhere in the country.
On the murder charge, Slatten could face a maximum penalty of life in prison.
Defense attorneys claimed the shootings were in self-defense. They said there was strong evidence the guards were being targeted with gunfire from insurgents and Iraqi police.
