Boston Bomber Trial: Jury Rules Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Is Guilty
The court case of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the Boston Marathon bomber, is complete and the jury has deliberated and ruled that he is guilty.
The 21-year-old committed the heinous crime almost two years ago on April 15, 2013, which injured hundreds and killed three. The suspect has 30 counts against him, and 17 of the 30 counts face the possibility of the death penalty. He has been found guilty of 30 out of 30 charges. He was found guilty of all 17 possible death penalty charges.
The jury’s job was to decide if he was guilty or not guilty, and in the sentencing phase, the suspect will be eligible to either serve life in prison or potentially face the death penalty. The jury was presented with much evidence during the court case including videos of the bomb going off that were reportedly very bloody and horrific.
Dzhokhar committed the crime with his brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who died on April 19, 2013 after multiple gunshot wounds.
