Um, yea, a bit of a stretch there.
thats what I’m getting after the first read thru
During a prison visit with his sister, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the accused Boston Marathon bomber, made a statement that was “to his detriment” that was overheard by an FBI agent, federal prosecutors said today in a court filing.
The filing said that Tsarnaev, despite the presence of an FBI agent who was legally allowed in the room, along with an employee of the federal public defender’s office, “was unable to temper his remarks and made a statement to his detriment which was overheard by the agent.”
