The Boston 3: Tsarnaev, Bulger & Hernandez

The boston three 3

Boston has been the site of some of the United States’ most dramatic news stories in 2013, and now, it will be the site of some of its most compelling trials.

Today the younger of the two alleged Boston Bombers, 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, will appear in his first court arraignment in order to receive the 30 charges levied against him, 17 of which could get him the death penalty. This will be Tsarnaev’s first public appearance since his capture.

In the same Boston courthouse where Tsarnaev will appear, the Moakley Federal Courthouse, the Whitey Bulger trial presses on. The 83-year-old legendary Boston mobster is being charged with long list of crimes accrued over a lifetime of involvement in organized crime and includes participating in at least 19 murders.

The outlier of the group is former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez. Hernandez is currently accused of murdering amateur football player Odin Lloyd, his future sister-in-law’s boyfriend. He has also recently become a suspect in a double murder that occurred in Boston last year.

These three will face criminal prosecutions, two in the same courthouse, causing twitter to relate the cases and even dub them the infamous “Boston 3.”
