BARABOO, WI (WTAQ) - A Baraboo woman says she's been threatened for writing letters of support to a suspect charged in last year's Boston Marathon bombings.
35-year-old Crystel Clary tells WISC-TV in Madison that she's written 14 letters and cards to Dzhokhar Tsarnaev -- and only the cards have been returned to her by law enforcement. Clary said she wants the alleged bomber to know that there are people who support him.
Wednesday, his lawyers will ask a federal judge to drop some of the charges against Tsarnaev, saying they're redundant.
Online court records show that Clary entered a deferred prosecution agreement for delivering illegal items to an inmate at the state's Oakhill prison in 2012. She was given a chance to have the charge dropped by meeting certain conditions.
Meanwhile, a number of Wisconsin runners are heading to Boston for next Monday's marathon.
Some couldn't complete last year's race due to the bombings at the finish line -- and they say they want to finish what they started.
