    Will we ever know why Dzhokhar Tsarnaev spoke after it was too late?

    "The government focused on the claim that Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev did not show remorse for his heinous, unimaginable crime until last week’s sentencing proceeding. That, counsel suggested, was too little, too late. Why was Tsarnaev silent during the penalty phase, when his life was on the line, only to speak after the jury chose death, when it no longer mattered? The sealed docket entries, the arguments of counsel, the documents that have been kept from the public, may hold the clue...."

    Tsarnaev may face state trial for Sean Collier death

    "Middlesex District Attorney Marian T. Ryan plans to bring convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev back to Massachusetts to face state charges of murdering MIT police officer Sean Collier and other crimes in the days after the Marathon attacks, even though a federal judge last month sentenced Tsarnaev to death....

    “When you come into Middlesex County and execute a police officer in the performance of his duties and assault other officers attempting to effect his capture, it is appropriate you should come back to Middlesex County to stand trial for that offense,” Ryan said in a statement. Tsarnaev also faces several other state charges, including carjacking and kidnapping.

    In addition, Ryan suggested that convicting Dzhokhar Tsarnaev of state charges could act as an insurance policy in case Tsarnaev successfully appeals his federal conviction. Ryan noted that the federal convictions are “not yet final.” His convictions and sentence are subject to an automatic appeal...."

    The Boston bomber's family says the attack was part of an American conspiracy :sheesh:

    "...Tsarnaev's uncle, Said-Hussein Tsarnaev, told Time that the attack "was all fabricated by the American special services." His family claims the conspiracy was carried out to test the public's reaction to a terrorist threat and the subsequent imposition of martial law, according to Time..."

    The Worst of the Worst
    Judy Clarke excelled at saving the lives of notorious killers. Then she took the case of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

    "...Among death-penalty lawyers, Clarke is known, without irony, as St. Judy, on the basis of her humility, her generosity, and her devotion to her clients. She has not given an interview to the mainstream press in twenty years. But, in a 2013 commencement speech at Gonzaga University School of Law, Clarke said that her clients have obliged her to “redefine what a win means.” Victory usually means a life sentence. Even so, Clarke said, she owes a debt of gratitude to her clients, for “the lessons they’ve taught me—about human behavior and human frailty—and the constant reminder that there but for the grace of God go I.”.."

    Lawyers for Boston Marathon bomber argue for new trial

    "Defense attorneys on Tuesday argued that Tsarnaev’s conviction and sentence were tainted by the law, which affected half of the 30 criminal counts he faced.

    The high court found the law overly broad in a hearing on an unrelated case two days after Tsarnaev was sentenced.

    “It’s really impossible to unpack what weight that (ruling) might have had on the jury’s deliberations, in their weighing of aggravating and mitigating factors,” defense attorney William Fick said. “It requires a redo of the entire sentencing proceeding.”

    Federal prosecutors questioned the relevance of the argument, given the magnitude of the attack. Tsarnaev’s attorneys admitted on the first day of the trial that he played a role in the bombing, and the 22-year-old apologized before sentencing.

    “There is absolutely no reason to believe … the result would have been any different,” had the charges had no reference that Tsarnaev and his older brother were in possession of a handgun during the attack, said Assistant U.S. Attorney William Weinreb.

    U.S. District Judge George O’Toole did not immediately rule on the request..."

    Man who lent gun to Boston Marathon bombers to be freed

    "...U.S. District Judge Mark Wolf sentenced Stephen Silva, who was arrested in July 2014, to time served plus three years' supervised release for the charges that he pleaded guilty to last year.

    Silva was not accused of playing any role in the April 15, 2013, bombing at the Boston Marathon finish line, which killed three people and injured 264, but admitted having possessed a handgun with its serial number filed off.

    He testified in March that he lent that gun, a Ruger P95, to Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who told him he wanted it to rob college students in Rhode Island...."

    Boston bomber Tsarnaev loses bid for new trial, ordered to pay $101M in restitution

    "...The judge's order instructs Tsarnaev to pay a total of $101,124,027 to 49 individuals, to be placed in the Massachusetts Victim Compensation Fund.

    The 22-year-old Tsarnaev, however, clearly has no way to disperse that amount, meaning the restitution order will effectively be a symbolic gesture.
    Defense attorneys did not contest the dollar amount but are continuing to appeal Tsarnaev's conviction and death sentence..."

    So far, little new in Marathon bombing files

    "Dozens of documents in the case of Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev have been unsealed as part of a court order that will eventually make public hundreds of previously secret records. However, little new information had been revealed as of Wednesday evening.

    The released documents include previously unreported tidbits such as a Medicaid card found in Tsarnaev’s college dorm room; already documented descriptions of Tsarnaev’s interaction with authorities after his arrest; and prosecutors’ objections to the testimony of a well-known Catholic nun.

    The clerk’s office continues to unseal the dozens of documents identified in the court order, and later filings could shed light on other aspects of the case, including the suspected involvement of Tsarnaev’s older brother in an unsolved triple homicide in Waltham, and details of the process to select a jury in the death penalty trial..."

    Boston Marathon bombing documents shed little new light

    "BOSTON (AP) — Hundreds of newly released court documents in the case of Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev shed little new light on the 2013 attack, but hundreds more could stay secret for years while he appeals. Tsaranev, 22, was convicted last year and sentenced to death in the bombings, which killed three people and injured more than 260.

    Here's a look at the documents that were unsealed, the documents that remain sealed and why:..."

    Prosecutors: Marathon bomber showed 'opposite of remorse'

    "BOSTON (AP) — Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev gave a stunning courtroom apology when he was sentenced to death in the deadly 2013 attack, but just after he was captured, he showed "the opposite of remorse," prosecutors said in court documents released Wednesday..

    In newly released court documents, prosecutors said Tsarnaev expressed anything but regret when he was questioned by two FBI agents after his capture days after the bombings. They included the description of Tsarnaev in a motion to limit the testimony of Sister Helen Prejean, a Roman Catholic nun and staunch death penalty opponent made famous by the 1995 film, "Dead Man Walking."

    Prosecutors argued that Prejean's testimony should be excluded, calling it a "thinly disguised way for Tsarnaev to offer statements of remorse" without having to make them under oath, be cross-examined by prosecutors and allow jurors to gauge his sincerity for themselves. They argued that if Prejean was allowed to testify, they should be allowed to confront her with other statements Tsarnaev made to FBI agents after his capture..."

    Boston Marathon bomber's lawyers appeal his conviction and death sentence

    "Lawyers for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev filed an appeal on Friday of his conviction on murder and other charges related to the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, court papers show.
    The motion, filed with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit in Boston, also asks the court to overturn the death sentence pronounced on Tsarnaev after his conviction last year.

    It further seeks a reversal of an order that Tsarnaev, 22, pay more than $100 million to victims of the attack at the finish line of the annual 26.2 mile race at Boston's Copley Square..."
