Zacarias Moussaoui could testify soon at his sentencing trial being held near Washington.
The only man charged in the U.S. for the 9-11 attacks has reaffirmed he still intends to tell his story in his own words.
After prosecutors rested their case, Moussaoui yelled out at a court recess that he would testify whether his court-appointed lawyer wanted him to or not.
It's no secret that defense lawyers do not want him on the stand.
They're concerned that what he says could help the prosecution.
Moussaoui has pleaded guilty to conspiring with al-Qaida to fly planes into U.S. buildings.
But he has consistently said he was not part of the 9-11 operation.
The trial resumes this morning in northern Virginia.
