Capital punishment in Massachusetts
Capital punishment in Massachusetts was a legal form of punishment from 1620 to 1984, when it was declared unconstitutional.
Although capital punishment is now unconstitutional in Massachusetts, federal crimes committed in Massachusetts may still be subject to the death penalty. For example, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was sentenced to death by a federal court on May 15, 2015, for his role in the Boston Marathon bombing.
