Special Restrictions On Dzhokhar Tsarnaev
Attorneys for the accused marathon bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, were in federal court today. The argued that the restrictions placed on their client by the government have hurt their ability to mount a defense.
The so-called Special Administrative Measures were put in place in late August, four months after Tsarnaev’s arrest. They include keeping him in solitary confinement, monitoring his calls and mail, as well as a series of restrictions placed on his lawyers.
