Marathon bomber loses bid for new trial, told to pay $101M

A federal judge on Friday rejected Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's bid for a new trial and ordered him to pay victims of the deadly attack more than $101 million in restitution.
The restitution order, issued by Judge George O'Toole Jr., is seen as largely symbolic because Tsarnaev is in federal prison and has no ability to pay.
Tsarnaev, 22, was convicted and sentenced to death last year in the 2013 attack. Two pressure cooker bombs placed near the marathon finish line by Tsarnaev and his brother killed three people and injured more than 260 others.

Tsarnaev also was convicted of killing a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer days later. During the sentencing hearing Tsarnaev admitted that he and his brother committed the bombings, and he apologized to the victims.

His brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, died days after the bombing following a gunbattle with police.

The judge, in his order denying Dzhokhar Tsarnaev a new trial, noted that he and a federal appeals court had previously rejected arguments from Tsarnaev's lawyers that he could not receive a fair trial in Boston, where many people knew the victims or had connections to the marathon. The defense also cited intense and continuing local news coverage of the victims and the anniversary of the bombings.

But the judge said the victims, the trial and other marathon-related events also were covered widely by national and international news organizations.
"There is no reason to think — and certainly no specific evidence — that this extensive coverage would have been any different in kind or degree if the trial had been conducted elsewhere," he wrote in his order.
Liz Norden, the mother of two men who each lost a leg in the bombings, said she was pleased the judge denied Tsarnaev's request for a new trial.
"I personally think he did get a fair trial," she said. "He said he did it. He admitted to it. I don't know why they would even consider that what he got was not deserving."
Norden said even though it's obvious Tsarnaev won't be able to pay the restitution ordered by the judge, the order is meaningful.
"I don't think you could ever put a price tag on what any of the victims went through, but to know that the judge took a step and did that, it means something to me," she said.

What new trial does he need when he and his fellow devilish brother did not give the people they sent to their early graves the privilege of enjoying their own lives.

Now that seems a little bit harsh enough, just as enough as it should be to deter potential bombers.
