Lawyers for Boston Marathon bomber to argue for new trial
Tue Dec 1, 2015 7:02am EST

Lawyers for Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev are due in court on Tuesday to seek a new trial for their client, who was sentenced to death in June for the 2013 bomb attack that killed three people and injured more than 260.

U.S. District Judge George O'Toole agreed last month to hear defense attorneys' arguments about a federal sentencing law that applied additional prison time for crimes committed while in possession of a firearm. The Supreme Court found it overly broad two days after Tsarnaev was sentenced to death by lethal injection.

Defense lawyers are also asking that rules put in place ahead of the trial providing them with privacy to communicate with their client be left intact as they prepare for appeal.

The defense in August asked that Tsarnaev be re-tried outside Boston, saying the intense publicity surrounding the attack and the trial unfairly influenced the 12 jurors who found their client guilty and sentenced him to death.

Tsarnaev, 22, is being held at the "Supermax" high security prison in Florence, Colorado, while his attorneys appeal his death sentence. He is not expected to be present in court, according to a spokeswoman for federal prosecutors.

I think it should be noted that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev came to America as a refugee when he was a 9 year old boy.

Let's let in another 200,000 what could go wrong?

Oh just stick him with the needle, already! :59

I have NO patience with the appellate process in a DP case.
Just more money for the lawyers.

I think the defense asked for change of venue a million times. It would not have mattered where the trial was held, same outcome imo.

Every time I see Tsarnaev's name, I picture 8-y/o Martin Richard in my mind's-eye. :(

I remember this guy testifying at trial, was hesitant, but helped his case. A friend of Tsarnaev since 8th grade.

Man who loaned gun to Boston Marathon bomber faces sentencing; gun used to kill MIT officer
AP | FoxNews | December 19, 2015


BOSTON – A man who loaned a gun used by the Boston Marathon bombers to kill a police officer is set to be sentenced on drug and gun charges.

Stephen Silva will be sentenced Tuesday in U.S. District Court.

Silva testified during the trial of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev he let Tsarnaev borrow a Ruger 9mm handgun two months before the bombings. He said Tsarnaev told him he wanted it to rob University of Rhode Island students. He also said Tsarnaev "kept coming up with excuses" for why he didn't return the gun.

Prosecutors have said the gun was used by Tsarnaev and his brother to kill MIT police Officer Sean Collier days after the bombings.

Man who loaned gun to Boston Marathon bomber gets time served
AP/Chicago Tribune | December 22, 2015, 1:38PM


A man who loaned a gun used by the Boston Marathon bombers to kill a police officer was sentenced Tuesday to the 17 months he has already served and apologized, saying his actions were "dumb."

"I was young, dumb, and thought I could outsmart everyone," 22-year-old Stephen Silva told a judge in U.S. District Court. He pleaded guilty to gun and heroin distribution charges last year.
