A Court Room Sketch Showing Dzhokar With His Defense Team

Dzhokar Tsarnaev, the terrorist behind the Boston Marathon bombing of 2013, has been found guilty on all 30 counts, with 17 carrying the death penalty.  The penalty phase will begin next week, with the jury reportedly split over whether he should be killed or not. He was described as “arrogant and emotionless” in court.

His mother gave a bizarre rant after the verdict, saying “America is the real terrorist and my boys are the best.”  Dzhokar has claimed the bombing was masterminded by his brother Tamerlan, who was killed in a shootout with police.
