Transcript for Accused Boston Marathon Bomber Makes Rare Public Appearance
Thanks for sharing that. And the latest on the Boston marathon bomber. In court on Thursday, seen here wearing the Orange jump suit. This is likely the final hearing. And Brian Ross has been tracking the case since the first terrifying minutes. Reporter: The trial set to begin after the first of the year with the accused Boston bomber facing the possibility of the death penalty. The 21-year-old dzhokhar tsarnaev had not been seen in public for 17 months. Until this scene outside his prison, surrounded by U.S. Marshals with automatic weapons. In shackles and wearing an Orange jump suit. He and his brother are accused of setting off the bombs at the Boston marathon finishlike line that killed three and injured dozens. He was severely injure when had police found him hiding in a dry dock boat. He is moving. We have movement in the boat. He sat up. Reporter: His older brother, tamerlan, had been killed earlier that day in a shootout with police. In court Thursday in Boston, tsarnaev with a bushy head of hair appeared completely recovered from his injuries. At least 14 of the bombing victims came to court, encountering outside a small group of tsarnaev supporters. Mark walked away from them in disgust. Get a life, lady. Get a life. Reporter: Tsarnaev's lawyers claim he can't get a fair trial in a city where the memories of the bombing are so raw. It could take a month to pick a jury, and they have asked for 1200 potential jurors to be available. Any thought to move it outside of Boston? They have asked for it once, and again yesterday. But the judge says the trial will be held in Boston and scheduled to begin on January 5th. Thanks very much.
