Two of Tsarnaev's friends, Dias Kadyrbayev and Azamat Tazhayakov, pled not guilty to conspiracy to obstruct justice and obstructing justice with intent to impede authorities.

A third friend, Robel Phillipos, pled not guilty to making false statements to FBI agents during the investigation, CNN reports.
