Azamat Tazhayakov, 20, is charged with obstructing justice in the Boston bombings case. The jury found Tazhayakov guilty. As a result, Tazhayakov is facing up to 20 years in prison.
Myers did no specify what kind of information Tazhayakov intended to share in the courtroom. Meanwhile, Tazhayakov’s sentence is due November 19. The lawyer noted that if his client testifies against Tsarnaev, his sentence may be postponed.
