Tsarnaev Found Guilty on All Counts

Posted on April 16, 2015 by


Dzokhar Tsarnaev was convicted for the 2013 bombing of the Boston marathon. A federal judge found him guilty on Wednesday, 8 April, 2015, for the terrorist attack that killed three people and wounded nearly 260.

Tanaraev, who is only twenty-one years old, is guilty on nearly thirty verdicts, seventeen of which have the possibility of the death penalty.

The counts were:
• 15 counts of use of firearm during a crime of violence. Guilty on all counts.

• 10 counts of bombing or mass weapon destruction. Guilty on all counts.

• 3 counts of malicious destruction of property. Guilty on all counts.

• 1 count of carjacking resulting in serious bodily injury. Guilty on all counts.

• 1 interference with commerce. Guilty on all counts.

“I’m glad that one of them was finally convicted,” said senior Matt Hook.

Tsarnaev will be facing the death penalty.  His older brother, who spearheaded the act, was shot during an altercation with police officers after the bombing.

Tsarnaev will go before a judge soon to see if he will be sentenced to death. He will either be sentenced to death or spend the rest of his life in prison.

“I’m glad the legal system got it right on this one,” senior Mitch Kinek said.
