United States Attorney, Carmen Ortiz, of the Boston, Massachusetts US Attorney’s Office announced on Tuesday, November 12, 2013 that she will make her recommendation to US Attorney General Eric Holder with regard to whether Dzhokar Tsarnaev should face the death penalty for his alleged role in the Boston Marathon bombing.
In a status conference held on Tuesday morning in the federal district court in Boston, Judge George O’Toole asked the government attorneys whether they will be seeking the death penalty against Dzhokar Tsarnaev. That issue arises in the criminal case against the Chechen immigrant for his alleged role in the Boston bombing. Tsarnaev is alleged to have assisted his brother, Tamerlan, in making pressure cooker bombs and setting them off near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013. The bombs killed three people and caused injuries to some 260 others.
The federal government is pursuing federal terrorism charges against Tsarnaev for his alleged role in the bombing. At the option of the government, the death penalty can be sought on these charges.
US Attorney Carmen Ortiz announced today that by the end of this week, she will make her recommendation to Attorney General Eric Holder. Holder will ultimately make the decision on whether the government will pursue the death penalty against Tsarnaev. At any rate, Judge O’Toole indicated that he expects the final decision from the government on the subject no later than January 31, 2014.
