Boston Marathon Bomber's College Pal Gets Prison Sentence

The mother of a college friend of Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has spoken out like any outraged mother wood, regarding the sentencing of her son on Tuesday to six years in prison after he apologized to the victims and their families for not calling police when he recognized photos of Tsarnaev as a suspect.
Dias Kadyrbayev, 21, pleaded guilty last year to obstruction of justice and conspiracy charges for removing items from Tsarnaev's dorm room after recognizing his friend in photos released by the FBI days after the bombing. Prosecutors say Kadyrbayev exchanged text messages with Tsarnaev, then went to his room with two other friends.
Kadyrbayev said Tuesday that he had no explanation for his actions.
Kadyrbayev had faced up to seven years in prison. His lawyer had sought a three-year sentence.
He will get credit for the 26 months he's been in custody and will be deported to his native Kazakhstan when his prison term is up.
