The first segment of June 20th’s WCVB On The Record Sunday Roundtable with anchors Janet Wu and Ed Harding. Mary Anne Marsh and Andrew Goodrich discuss Rachel Rollins, Jim Lyons, and the death penalty for Boston Marathon Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
Also, who’s up next for Massachusetts US Attorney? Earlier today, frontrunner Rachel Rollins, Suffolk County DA, went On The Record to give viewers a preview. Rollins discussed a number of the state’s hot button legal issues, from the death penalty for the Boston Marathon Bomber to the Mikayla Miller investigation.
