  • Will Dzhokhar Tsarnaev take the stand?

    BostInno - 01/13/2015

    Daniel Medwed, a professor of criminal law at Northeastern University School of Law, told BostInno he doesn’t expect Tsnaraev to take the stand. There’s a higher chance he will during the sentencing phase of the trial, but not during cross-examination.

    “The cross-examination would be withering,” said Medwed. Of taking the stand during the sentencing phase, he said “the defense team would have to balance the benefit of his testimony against the tremendous cost of allowing the prosecution to cross-examine in a heinous case like this.”
