BOSTON — Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, is hospitalized in serious condition at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Saturday after his dramatic arrest in Watertown Friday.
Tsarnaev was captured in a boat in a backyard following a day in which most residents in Greater Boston had to stay in their homes while authorities searched for him.
His highly publicized capture will likely mean highly publicized legal proceedings.
WBUR’s Deborah Becker and Bob Oakes spoke with defense attorney Brad Bailey with the law firm Denner Pellegrino, which defends people in legal matters involving the U.S. Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security.
