All of the friends of Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev charged with interfering with a Boston Marathon bombing investigation have now received prison sentences.

WBUR's David Boeri joins Morning Edition to report that a judge has accepted a plea deal Thursday between federal prosecutors and Khairullozhon Matanov, a cab driver from Quincy.

Matanov pleaded guilty in March to misleading the FBI after the 2013 marathon bombings by deleting his computer files and failing to disclose contact he had with the brothers.
