Surviving Boston Bomber Admits Role in the Attack

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev

Two U.S. officials say the surviving suspect in the Boston bombings acknowledged his role in the attacks to FBI investigators. But the officials say this occurred before authorities advised him of his constitutional rights, including the right to consult with an attorney and not to incriminate himself.

It was not clear whether the admission by Dzhokhar Tsarnaev would be admissible in a criminal trial, since it came before he was read his Miranda rights. It’s also unclear whether prosecutors would need the admission to secure a conviction since physical evidence has already been uncovered in the investigation.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the ongoing case.

Tsarnaev’s two lead defense lawyers did not immediately return phone and email messages.

      He is an American Citizen and as such He has his rights and I for one do not want them to violate his rights, because mine may be the next to be violated. I think we should wait and hear the evidence before we rush to judgment, he may have been set up by the people who want to take away our freedoms. Still far too many questions about this case.
