tsarDzhokhar Tsarnaev has been convicted in the 2013 bombing of the Boston Marathon.

A federal jury found Tsarnaev guilty Wednesday in the 2013 terror attack that killed three people and wounded more than 260. He kept his hands folded in front of him and looked down at the defense table as the guilty verdicts were read.

The jury will now decide whether the 21-year-old former college student should be sentenced to death or receive life in prison.

Tsarnaev’s conviction was widely expected, given his lawyer’s startling admission during opening statements that he took part in the bombing. But the lawyer also argued that Tsarnaev’s older brother, Tamerlan, masterminded the attack and enlisted his then-19-year-old brother to help.

Prosecutors portrayed the brothers as full partners in a plan to retaliate against the U.S. for its wars in Muslim countries.

  1. Can’t believe that people think these 2 boys did it. You can tell by the sloppy job that it was an inside job. Look at the guy who lost his legs, he lost his legs in 2007 , and was wearing prosthetics. You can see that they are not attached to him and someone fixes his costume. Don’t be fooled, look a bit closer. Most of these disasters are American made. Just wait and see what they have in store. They convince people to work for them and then use them as the guinea pigs.

  2. #2 Why are you spewing demented stories ? That kind of mentality can cause you to lose your trust in humanity and chas vishalom hashem. An example:maybe receiving the torah never happened maybe moses conspired and fooled everyone
