BOSTON - A Massachusetts State Police photographer who released photos of the bloodied Boston marathon bombing suspect during his capture has been placed on restricted duty.
Sgt. Sean Murphy leaked the photos to Boston Magazine last week, saying he wanted to counter a glamorized image of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-HAHR' tsahr-NEYE'-ehv) on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.
On Tuesday, Murphy was placed on desk duty, where he would have no contact with the public, until a further investigation is completed.
Murphy wasn't authorized to release the 14 photos, and he's already served a one-day, unpaid suspension. Some attorneys say the release of photos and Murphy's comments could be used to argue government bias against Tsarnaev.
Tsarnaev was captured hiding in a boat in the Boston suburb of Watertown four days after the April 15 bombings.
