Justice has been served in the Boston Marathon bombings, but now it’s just a matter of when it will be carried out. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was found guilty for his role in the gruesome events that were carried out at the finish line of the Boston Marathon back on April 15, 2013. With Tsarnaev having been found guilty, the last measure for the jury was to decide on whether he would be sent to federal prison for life or receive the death penalty. It took the jury 16 hours of deliberation that carried over a three-day span once Tsarnaev was found guilty of 30 crimes, but in the end they chose death.

Tsarnaev was convicted for a laundry list of crimes that included: Guilty of using weapons of mass destruction, guilty of bombing a place of public use, guilty of conspiracy and aiding and abetting. This also includes the murder Martin Richard, Lingzi Lu, Sean Collier, and Krystle Campbell.

Some legal experts actually believe that Tsarnaev’s appeal process could take up to 20 years to be settled. While it certainly won’t bring back the lives of several innocent people in this horrific terrorist attack, it does provide some solace for those that are missing loved ones as they try to move on.
