Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the man suspected of Boston Marathon bombings, is to be charged with terrorism, CNN reports with reference to law enforcement agencies.
Terrorism charges have not been brought against the suspect yet, but this is only a question of time. It should be noted that the laws of the State of Massachusetts do not provide death penalty for serious charges of terrorism. It is quite possible that charges will be brought at the federal level. In this case, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev may face criminal punishment.
On Friday, 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who is suspecting of conducting terrorist attacks during the Boston Marathon, was arrested during a joint special operation of the FBI, police and special forces in the suburbs of Boston. During the arrest, the offender showed resistance and received several severe wounds.
At the moment, the terrorist stays at a hospital in Massachusetts under heavy guard. His brother - Tamerlane - who is also suspected of the terrorist act in Boston, was killed by security forces the day earlier.
