Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Convicted Of Boston Marathon Bombing

BOSTON – Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the 21-year-old who admitted he and his brother bombed the 2013 Boston Marathon, has been found guilty on all 30 counts against him, including conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction and bombing of a public place.

The jury of five men and seven women deliberated for roughly 11 hours over two days before reaching a verdict.

The verdict now sets up a penalty phase, in which the defendant’s lawyers will try to save him from death row.

Though Tsarnaev pleaded not guilty, the trial began March 4 with defense lawyer Judy Clarke’s blunt admission that Tsarnaev and his older brother, each armed with a pressure cooker bomb concealed in a backpack, carried out the devastating April 15, 2013, attack.
