Supreme Court will revisit the death sentence for the Boston Marathon bomber

130

On Wednesday, The US Supreme Court will hear a request from the Justice Department to reinstate the death sentence for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Tsarnaev has been accused of organizing the explosion at the 2013 Boston Marathon, when three people were killed and hundreds injured.

In 2020, the District Court of Appeals overturned Tsarnaev's death sentence, citing procedural violations during the trial.

Still before Donald Trump left the White House, the Justice Department filed an appeal against this decision, and then confirmed its position in June 2021 already under the Joe Biden administration.

This revealed the apparent inconsistency of the current president, who during the election campaign promised to seek the adoption of a law abolishing the death penalty at the federal level and to encourage states to do the same.
