MA Lawyers Weekly: Podcast: Former prosecutor Brad Bailey on Phillipos conviction

By: Noah Schaffer
October 28, 2014

A federal jury today (Oct. 28) convicted Robel Phillipos of two counts of lying to federal agents who were investigating the Boston Marathon bombings.

FBI agents testified that Phillipos told them a string of lies about the night of April 18, 2013, before finally acknowledging that he had been in bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's room at the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth with the two men who removed Tsarnaev's backpack and computer.

Phillipos' defense rested on the claim that the then-19-year-old's use of marijuana clouded his memory.

Lawyers Weekly talked to former federal prosecutor Brad Bailey, a Boston attorney who was not involved in the case, about the conviction.
