Accused Boston bomber's lawyers renew bid for trial out of state

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 08/08/2014 - 23:47

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, suspect #2 in the Boston Marathon explosion is pictured in this undated FBI handout photoLawyers for accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev have renewed efforts to move his trial out of Massachusetts, arguing in new court documents that it would be difficult to find an unbiased jury in the state. Tsarnaev's attorneys filed a declaration late Thursday from a California State University professor who said his examination of poll results and media coverage showed the 21-year-old defendant had a better chance of a fair trial in Washington D.C. "It is my professional opinion ... that the Court should grant a change of venue from the District of Massachusetts, and preferably to Washington, D.C.," Professor Edward Bronson wrote in the declaration, filed in U.S. District Court in Boston. Bronson said research of media coverage and resident attitudes toward Tsarnaev in other potential court venues - including Springfield, Massachusetts, and New York City - showed they were more likely than D.C. residents to believe Tsarnaev was guilty. Tsarnaev is accused of having worked with his older brother, Tamerlan, to plant two homemade pressure cooker bombs at the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013.
