TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — A federal judge has unsealed about 60 documents in the 2011 Tucson shooting rampage that wounded former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
But U.S. District Judge Larry Burns ruled that about 20 other documents will remain under seal.
Burns says some of those documents that should stay sealed contain confidential reports from the Bureau of Prisons about the 24-year-old man charged in the shooting rampage.
Jared Lee Loughner was sentenced in November to seven consecutive life sentences, plus 140 years.
He pleaded guilty to 19 federal charges in the shooting that left six people dead and 13 others wounded, including Giffords.
The rampage occurred at a Giffords' meet-and-greet with her constituents outside a Tucson supermarket on Jan. 8, 2011.
Loughner's guilty plea enabled him to avoid the death penalty.
