Sisters’ jail visits to accused Boston bomber not confidential -prosecutors

BOSTON (Reuters) – Joint prison visits to accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev by his sisters and attorneys should not be treated as confidential lawyer-client meetings, U.S. prosecutors argued in court papers filed Friday.

Responding to an October request by defense attorneys to loosen restrictions on their communication with the 20-year-old Tsarnaev, prosecutors argued they have the right for an FBI agent to be present at meetings between the defendant and social visitors – to insure that neither party was “soliciting or encouraging acts of violence or other crimes.”
