  • Tsarnaev guilty of Boston bombings. Where does trial go from here?

    The Christian Science Monitor - 04/08/2015

    From the prosecution’s perspective, the relatively quick guilty verdicts on all 30 counts might suggest that what they’re doing is working – and they should continue.

    “In a case like this it appears pretty clear that the prosecution has momentum,” says Daniel Medwed, a law professor at Northeastern University in Boston. The timing of verdicts “suggests the jurors were quite moved by the prosecution’s case. So I think the prosecution would want to build on that and move on with case as quickly as possible.”

    Professor Medwed also asks of the jury: “Over time, could they become more accustomed to those images? It’s possible.”
