Dallas Federal Criminal Appeals Lawyer John Helms Analyzes the Boston Marathon Case Ruling
Former Federal Prosecutor with the Northern District of Texas Appellate Lawyer John Helms Explains SCOTUS’s Unremarkable Decision To ReInstate Tsarnev’s Death Penalty
National news sources have recently reported the reinstatement of the death penalty for surviving Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, but many of the headlines are over-sensationalized and potentially misleading in regards to the wider implications of the case.
In a new online resource, Dallas defense attorney John Helms explains the process of an appeal and breaks down the facts on the Supreme Court’s Boston Marathon bomber ruling.
“Frankly, I found the Supreme Court’s decision unremarkable,” says Mr. Helms, whose unique perspective as a former federal prosecutor gives him broad insight into both sides of each case he works on, “It did not decide any novel issues of law or rule on any important constitutional questions. The majority opinion struck me as very much like a run-of-the-mill opinion that the federal courts of appeal issue every day.” Dallas Federal Criminal Appeals Lawyer, John Helms
