On May 15, 2015, a Boston jury found Tsarnaev guilty of all 30 charges for his role in the April 2013 Boston Marathon bombing that left three people dead and more than 260 injured.
Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been transferred to a high-security prison in Colorado.
Tsarnaev was sentenced to death last month and was then taken from Massachusetts to the U.S. Penitentiary in Florence, Colorado.
Police officials said Thursday that officers worked more than 13,000 hours of overtime helping secure the federal courthouse from January through May during the trial and on June 24 when Tsarnaev was sentenced to death. The facility houses some of the nation’s most notorious convicts, including Zacarias Moussaoui, who helped plan the September 11, 2001, terror attacks, and Richard Reid, known as the Shoe Bomber. Tsarnaev apologized at his sentencing.
It is expected that Tsarnaev will eventually sit on federal death row in Terre Haute, Indiana.
Speaking outside the courtroom following the hearing, survivor Lynn Julian, who was left with a traumatic brain injury, hearing loss and PTSD from the blasts, condemned his statement.
