Dzhokhar Tsarnaev told his mother that people are sending him money. In a recording of their first call placed from prison, Tsarnaev informed his mother someone opened an account for him and deposited money.
He received “at least” a thousand dollars in the account. “The mother says the family has also received $8,000 from individuals pledging their support, according to Channel 4 News.”
The call took place last week, and Tsarnaev is allowed one call a month to his parents. “They are giving me chicken and rice now, everything is fine,” he said.
The mother says the family has also received $8,000 from individuals pledging their support, according to Channel 4 News.
Tsaarnaev is in federal prison awaiting trial for conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction. “The family has dismissed reports that Dzhokhar has confessed to plotting and carrying out the attack during a police interrogation. She also denied earlier reports that Dzhokhar had told his parents during the call that he and Tamerlan were innocent.”
