Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev should turn over money to his victims, including a previously deposited $1,400 federal stimulus payment, the US Attorney’s Office of Massachusetts said in a filing Wednesday morning.

The filing is requesting the Federal Bureau of Prisons to turn over funds from Tsarnaev’s inmate trust account. Tsarnaev is currently serving a life sentence in a federal prison in Florence, Colorado.

Despite having more than $21,000 transferred to his account since 2013, prosecutors said Tsarnaev has only paid a little over $2,000 toward restitution.

Of the $21,000 transferred to Tsarnaev’s account, most were made by attorneys or individuals, but also includes a $1,400 stimulus payment from June 2021, the filing says. As of December 22, 2021, prosecutors said he had approximately $3,885 in his inmate trust account.
