BOSTON – Jurors in the trial of Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-HAHR' tsahr-NEYE'-ehv) are lying low after condemning him last week to death.
Judge George O'Toole Jr. has not released the jurors' names to reporters, and none of them have come forward to talk about the experience.
Jury consultant Karen Fleming-Ginn says there are many reasons why jurors in the Tsarnaev case would choose not to speak publicly right away. She says they might be afraid of being criticized for their decision in Massachusetts, a state that is considered anti-death penalty.
Jurors might also just want to put the case behind them. They had to look at gruesome autopsy photos and heard heartbreaking testimony from bombing survivors.
Three people were killed and more than 260 were injured in the 2013 bombing.
