SCOTUS Reinstates Death Penalty for Boston Marathon Bomber

Objectivity 4.5 | Credibility 4.6 | Relevance 4.6

The United States Supreme Court upheld the death sentence of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, an Islamic terrorist convicted of perpetrating the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. The court voted 6-3 to reverse a lower court decision that had overturned Tsarnaev’s death sentence. It is unclear whether Tsarnaev’s sentence will be carried out under the Biden administration, which is enforcing a moratorium on federal executions.
