U.S. public defender in Boston seeks to represent bomb suspect

BOSTON, April 20 (Reuters) - The U.S. Federal Public Defender Office in Boston is seeking to be appointed to represent Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings.

The office commonly defends individuals who cannot afford their own attorneys in criminal cases. An official there, Charles McGinty, said its attorneys have not spoken to Tsarnaev and will have to be appointed to represent him by a federal judge. "That's why we're trying to advance the appointment to be as soon as possible," he said.

The 19-year-old suspect was captured Friday night and remains hospitalized under guard in Boston. (Reporting By Ross Kerber; Editing by Doina Chiacu)

The perp should be transferred to the military so he can be waterboarded, THEN sent to GITMO.

I’m sure our friends, the Saudis, will get money to him for legal representation. After all, they are ideologically on the same page. Maybe they can get Kardashian..

The only place Saudi money will go in this operation is in Barrack HUSSAIN Obama’s pocket.

He’ll get a high profile liberal criminal defense attorney pro bono. That’s how careers are made.

Federal lawyers taking on Federal lawyers. This should be a real circle jerk. They’ll probably be a settlement out of court.

public defender??

I thought this guy was rolling in money - the lifestyle of the rich and famous. There have been several comments about his expensive cars, his partying, never in want.

Apparently reports say these two had enough money to always be driving new cars, Mercedes, BMW’s, etc. Why would a public defender be needed?

Ooo, Oo,..I’ll take ‘to make a name for myself and get out this crummy public defender’s office’ for $1000, Alex.

Oh, he's being trumpeted as a "boy" by the 5th column presstitutes.

First day in court, he'll have a fresh boyish haircut, clean shave, light skin and clothes that make him look like a poor misguided yute that was taken advantage of by his older brother. Think pictures of 0's son Trayvon.

This bomber isn’t some modern day Thomas Preston, and this public defender isn’t some modern day John Adams.

That being said, the man is legally entitled to competent legal counsel when facing the death penalty.

This perp is a naturalized American citizen, until such time as his citizenship is revoked. There is plenty of legal precedence to revoke his citizenship, to the point it would be a quick and simple case to prove. (Therefor the Holder Justice Dept, and Carmen Ortiz will NOT pursue this line of prosecution.)

Same goes for Faisal Shahzad, the 2010 Times Square bomber.

Good background read on this:

The Federal defenders office is usually staffed with good defense attorneys. They are normally appointed to represent defendants charged with federal crimes and as such they only operate in federal court (big leagues).

The majority of them are far better than the attorneys you can hire yourself because they are well versed in navigating the federal court system. They can also draw on the experience of their entire office and their own investigators. It’s a difficult job because federal prosecutors can pick and choose their cases and they rarely take weak cases.

The are not comparable to the public defenders office as they have far more time to devote to each case vs. public defenders at the state level. Those guys are slammed like a cashier at Walmart on black Friday.
