    One of the terrorists responsible for the Boston Marathon bombing received a $1,400 COVID relief check last summer that federal prosecutors are now seeking to take in order to make restitution to the victims of the attack, a report says.

    The terrorist, who The Daily Wire is not naming due to company policy about not giving notoriety to mass murderers, was ordered to pay more than $100 million to the victims of the attack.

    "Prisoners were largely eligible to receive $1,400 payments included in the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan that President Joe Biden signed into law last March," Newsweek reported. "Republicans unsuccessfully rallied against allowing inmates to receive the checks at the time, although prisoners were also not excluded from stimulus checks included in the GOP-backed Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act that former President Donald Trump had signed the previous year."

    Prosecutors are seeking the money from the terrorist's inmate trust account which, as of December 21, 2021, had $3,885.06 in it.

    Boston 25 News noted that deposits to the defendant's account became more frequent after he was sentenced, including:

  • The Defendant received a $1,400 COVID relief payment on June 22, 2021.
  • Between May 2016 and June 2021, the Defendant received multiple deposits from the Office of Federal Defenders of New York. The amounts varied between $40 and $250, totaling approximately $11,230.
  • Between August 2015 and August 2021, an individual residing in Indianapolis, Indiana, made monthly deposits between $30 and $60, totaling approximately $2,555.
  • Between August 2015 and December 2017, an individual residing in Bloomfield, New Jersey, made monthly deposits of $50, totaling approximately $1,450.
  • Between September 2013 and December 2018, an individual residing in Frederick, Maryland, made periodic deposits between $50 to $200, totaling approximately $950.
  • $3,486.60 from 32 other individuals.

    "In light of the Defendant's payment history and incarceration status, the United States requests that this Court enter an Order authorizing the BOP to turn over all funds, held in the Defendant's inmate trust account, including any funds subject to an administrative hold by BOP, to the Clerk of Court as payment toward the outstanding criminal monetary penalties imposed against the Defendant," prosecutors said. "The United States submits that the requested relief is reasonable and appropriate in this instance, especially in light of the Defendant prioritizing payments to his siblings over the victims of his crimes."

    The Daily Wire previously reported that the terrorist petitioned the First U.S. Court of Appeals in December 2019 to overturn his death sentence, arguing that his trial never should have taken place in Boston. The terrorist pleaded guilty to setting off a bomb that killed three and injured hundreds of others at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013.

    The terrorist carried out the attack in April 2013 with his brother. The two "used two homemade pressure cooker bombs near the finish line of the race, killing three people and injuring several hundred others. 16 people lost limbs as a result of the bombings," The Daily Wire reported. "During the manhunt for the brothers, the brothers killed MIT policeman Sean A. Collier, kidnapped a man in his car, and had a shootout with the police in Watertown, where they shot and severely wounded two officers, one of whom, Boston Police Department officer Dennis Simmonds, was injured by a hand grenade and died in April 2014."
