Friends of Boston Bomber Sentenced For Obstructing Justice

Two college friends of the Boston Marathon bomber were sentenced to prison on Friday.
The pair removed a backpack containing empty fireworks shells from Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's dorm room amid a massive manhunt three days after the deadly 2013 attack.
Kazakh exchange student Azamat Tazhayakov was sentenced to three and a half years for obstructing justice by taking Tsarnaev's pack and dropping it in a dumpster by the off-campus apartment they shared.
Robel Phillipos, of Cambridge, Massachusetts, was sentenced to three years in prison for lying to investigators about the incident, which occurred in the hours after the FBI released images of Tsarnaev and his older brother, Tamerlan, identifying them as suspects.
Unlike Tazhayakov, who have been in federal custody for more than two years, Phillipos has been on house arrest since he was first charged.
