Defense Admits Tsarnaev Role in Bombing

In opening statements Wednesday, the lawyer representing Dzhokhar Tsarnaev admitted that her client took part in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. “There’s little that we dispute. It was him,” Judy Clarke said. His defense team is trying to put the blame on Tsarnaev’s dead older brother Tamerlan, claiming he was the one who “self-radicalized” and that Dzhokhar “followed him.” Meanwhile, the prosecution has presented Dzhokhar as a ruthless killer who felt victorious after killing three and wounding more than 260.
