The state trooper who released photos of bombing suspect Jahar Tsarnaev has been transferred.

Sergeant Sean Murphy has been assigned to an overnight shift in Western Massachusetts.

Murphy was placed on leave last month after he released photos of a bloody Tsarnaev surrendering. The Sgt. Murphy states that he leaked the pictures to counter a glamorized image of Tsarnaev on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.
