Tazhayakov Found Guilty Of Obstruction Of Justice
A man charged with hindering the investigation into the Boston Marathon bombings is being found guilty of obstruction of justice.
Azamat Tazhayakov covered up for bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev by removing a laptop and backpack containing empty fireworks casings from a dorm room at UMass Dartmouth in the days following the April, 2013 attacks.
A 12-member jury returned the guilty verdict on two counts Monday and Tazhayakov could now get up to 25 years in prison.
Two other friends of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev are facing similar charges. (Metro Networks Inc,)
