Another week goes by in the Aaron Hernandez murder trials with new developments, this time coming from the defense team for Hernandez questioning some of the prosecution’s evidence.
The motion from Hernandez’s lawyers concerns the murder of Odin Lloyd and whether or not prosecuting attorneys have enough probable cause to take Hernandez to court regarding this crime.
According to the prosecution, the murder of Lloyd follows a pattern of behavior for the former Patriots Tight End. Hernandez got himself into trouble a nightclubs and other evening establishments that led to arguments and disputes that put him in hot water.
While his defense team is doing its best to throw away some of the charges being brought against their client, Hernandez is still in the same precarious position he has been in since these reports started to surface. It is interesting to consider that 20 years ago we had the O.J. Simpson murder case in full swing, and while Hernandez isn’t O.J., he seems to have the evidence weighing against him, as well as much of the population believing that he is guilty.
We will assuredly continue to hear about defense attorneys trying to finagle out of some degree of charges against Hernandez, but considering the situation, it would be surprising to see Hernandez not be tried to the full extent of the charges. Once things really get started, it may become more apparent not only what Hernandez’s role in the crime was, but perhaps we can learn more about his mysterious relationship with Lloyd.
The New England Patriots will have to deal with this stain until well after a decision is made and while the team will stay relatively silent from a PR standpoint, maybe we can get a slip up by a player during training camp that will be a quote for the ages!
