Death Penalty Specialist Appointed By The Court To Defend Boston Marathon Bombing Suspect

Joseph Coupal - Friday, May 03, 2013
In the aftermath of the Boston Marathon Bombing, there was speculation whether the federal government would be seeking the death penalty for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev After being moved from a civilian hospital to a hospital located at the federal prison at Fort Devens, Massachusetts, Tsarnaev now has Judy Clarke on his defense team.  Since it appears the U.S. Attorney’s Office will be seeking approval for the death penalty, a federal magistrate appointed Clarke for his legal defense.  Judge Marianne Bowler felt that current counsel from the Federal Defender’s Office did not have the requisite experience with  death penalty cases, experience that Clarke does have.   Clarke has represented some infamous people who have faced the death penalty, including  Ted Kaczynski, the Unabomber, Eric Rudolph, the Olympic bomber, and Jared Lee Loughner, the mass shooter in the Tucson, Arizona shooting in which Congresswoman Gabby Giffords was victimized.  In these mentioned cases the death penalty was avoided.
