Resources on the Federal Death Penalty and Boston Marathon Case
On January 30 U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder announced the government would seek the death penalty in the federal prosecution of accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. DPIC has a number of resources about the federal death penalty, including a list of federal death row inmates with descriptions of their cases, information about crimes eligible for the federal death penalty, a breakdown of outcomes in federal capital cases, and studies related to such issues as costs and racial disparities. We have also compiled legal documents related to the Tsarnaev case, including the recent notice of intent to seek the death penalty, the indictment, and initial charging document.
