He could face the death penalty.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has plead not guilty. The 19-year-old was called to answer for 30 charges for his alleged role in the Boston Marathon bombing. His answer? Not guilty. Tsarnaev reportedly repeated the phrase not guilty several times. In April, Dzhokar and his older brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev allegedly planted homemade bombs made from pressure cookers near the finish line of the Boston Marathon killing three and injuring hundreds.
Tamerlan was killed while trying to evade authorities, leaving Dzhokar alone to answer for the horrific crime.
Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev pleaded not guilty Wednesday as 30 survivors and victims' relatives stared him down in the courtroom. The 19 year old was arraigned on a 30-count indictment that charges him with using weapons of mass destruction and killing four people. With an orange jail jumpsuit over a black T-shirt and a bandage or cast on his left hand, his attitude seemed almost casual as he smiled crookedly, stroked his chin, slouched in his seat and glanced around the federal courtroom.
Over and over he repeated "Not guilty," as each charge was read.
The eight-minute hearing marked Tsarnaev's first public appearance since he was hauled bleeding from a boat four days after the twin blasts near the finish line of the April 15 race. He returns to court Sept. 23.Less
