Judge Denies Request From Lawyers To Take Photo’s Of Bombing Suspect
Defense attorneys for the surviving Boston bombing suspect can’t take pictures of their client unless the photos are shared with prosecutors.
Lawyers representing Dzhokhar Tsarnaev say they want to take pictures to document his injuries as evidence of “the voluntariness of his statements” during interrogation.
A judge ruled any photos taken would not be protected by attorney-client confidentiality.
Tsarnaev is accused of planting the bombs that ripped through crowds at the finish line of the Boston Marathon last month, killing three and injuring hundreds.
He could face the death penalty if convicted. (Metro Networks, Inc.)
