The notorious ‘Boston Bomber,’ Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, has now been ordered to return his coronavirus stimulus money to the families of his victims as part of restitution for his crimes.
As Fox News reports:
Convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been ordered by prosecutors to return a $1,400 COVID relief payment he received last summer along with other money sent to him, according to a court filing Wednesday.
The money should instead be used as restitution to his victims, the filing said.
Tsarnaev has $3,885.06 in his inmate trust account, with the money received from the government, the Office of Federal Defenders of New York and from private citizens.
He spent several thousand on his siblings for “gifts,” “support” and “books” but has barely paid any of the more than $101 million owed to the victims or the $3,000 special assessment as part of his sentencing, the court filing said.
Tsarnev’s original death sentence for the bombing was overruled in 2020.
