LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Both Dias Kadyrbayev and Azamat Tazhayakov now face charges of conspiracy to obstruct justice. The two teenaged friends shared an apartment in New Bedford. They have been detained since they were charged in May. 

According to the Justice department, if convicted, both face up to 20 years in prison and both face the possibility of being deported. Authorities say that they later found some of the items in a New Bedford landfill.


Tazhayakov's attorney Arkady Bukh says that his client did nothing wrong. He says he's tried for the last several months to convince authorities to drop the charges. "For me, this sounds like a witch hunt," he said. "And this is the same view (my) client has."


In the meantime, Kadyrbayev attorney's attorney Robert Stahl says that his client never knowingly took evidence from Tsarnaev's dorm room. "My young client ... was shocked and horrified to learn that someone he knew was involved in the terrible Marathon bombing," he said.


The 20-year-old Tsarnaev is accused in the April 15 blasts at the finish line of the Boston Marathon that killed three people and injured more than 260. He was captured April 19 in the Boston suburb of Watertown following a manhunt. He has pleaded not guilty to all charges.


Tsarnaev, Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov were all students at the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth.


After the FBI posted pictures of Tsarnaev and his brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev on April 18, an alleged co-conspirator died the next day during the manhunt. According to the indictment, Kadyrbayev later received a text message from Dzhokhar Tsarnaev suggesting that he go to Tsarnaev's "room and take what's there."


Prosecutors maintain that Kadyrbayev, Tazhayakov and another conspirator, who was not named in the indictment, went to Tsarnaev's room and removed several items, including Tsarnaev's laptop computer and a backpack containing fireworks. The indictment says they brought the items to Kadyrbayev's and Tazhayakov's apartment and later put some of them in a trash dumpster.
