Tsarnaev GUILTY, Faces Death Penalty

Dzokhar Tsarnaev

A Massachusetts jury has delivered a guilty verdict on multiple charges in the trial of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the 21-year-old accused of killing three people in the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013.

Tsarnaev faced 30 charges, including 17 capital counts that qualify for the death penalty which will be determined in a second trial.

Many court experts expected a guilty verdict.  Even Tsarnaev’s defense attorney said at the beginning of the trial that his client was guilty, but their entire defense was based on Dzhokhar being misled by his older brother Tamerlan.  The real fight will take place in the death penalty sentencing.

From The Hill:  “During the trial, the government released a number of videos which they said show Tsarnaev placing the bomb near the finish line. Other videos show the blast and the immediate aftermath, as people scream and scramble in the chaos after the blast. More than a dozen people lost limbs in the attack.”
