Aaron Hernandez Verdict

Quote :
Former New England Patriots*' star Aaron Hernandez nodded no as jurors in his Massachusetts trial found him guilty Wednesday of first degree murder, which carries a penalty of life imprisonment without the possibility of parole.

Hernandez was also found guilty of unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition.

He will be sentenced Wednesday morning.

As the verdict was read, the former standout tight end appeared upset but calm -- pursing his lips and taking a deep breath, as his lawyer James Sultan put his arm around him. He looked over to see his mother and fiancee weeping.

He mouthed to them, "It's OK."

Hernandez was on trial for the shooting death of Odin Lloyd, whose body was found in a Massachusetts industrial park in June 2013.

Lloyd's family appeared anxious in the Fall River, Massachusetts, courtroom prior to the verdict, as did the mother of Hernandez.

After the verdict, Lloyd's relatives thanked and embraced members of the prosecution team.

The sensational trial started in late January, just days before the Patriots*' Super Bowl victory over the Seattle Seahawks.

Prosecutors took months to present more than 130 witnesses to build their case. The defense wrapped up its witnesses in less than a day.

Prosecutors say Lloyd was seen June 17, 2013, around 2:30 a.m. with Hernandez and Hernandez's friends, Carlos Ortiz and Ernest Wallace, in a rented silver Nissan Altima. Later that day, a jogger found his body riddled with gunshots.

Wallace and Ortiz, who were also charged with murder, have pleaded not guilty, and will be tried separately.

Hernandez's attorney, Sultan, told jurors that Hernandez "witnessed" Lloyd's killing, "committed by somebody he knew," and that the former NFL player "really didn't know what to do, so he put one foot in front of another" and moved on with his life.

Two other men who were drug dealers allegedly killed Lloyd, Sultan told the jury.

Lloyd, who was working for a landscaping firm at the time of his killing, played football for the Boston Bandits, the oldest semi-pro team in Boston and the winner of four championships in the New England Football League, the team's website says.

Evidence collected in Lloyd's death led to two more murder charges against Hernandez in a separate case in Boston. He has pleaded not guilty. That trial is scheduled to begin in May, but officials say it will be pushed back.

Glad to see this piece of shit is going to be behind bars for a long, long time.

anything less than this would've been a miscarriage of justice.

too bad they don't have the death sentence there. Could have saved tax payers money on the life term prison sentence.

Eh, the death penalty, with it's mandatory appeal process, ends up costing taxpayers a lot more than a life sentence. I would also argue that spending the rest of your life in prison is a harsher punishment than being put to death. Especially so for someone who was previously enjoying celebrity status as a star athlete.

This is just tragic. Here is a guy who had great talent, was set to make an enormous sum of money, and could have had a SB ring. Instead, he takes a life and his life ends up in the dumpster.

Don't get me wrong, I'm glad justice was served, it's just a shame this young talent's life is now in the can.

Pro Football Hall Of Fame Removes Aaron Hernandez’s Gun




CANTON, OH—Following dozens of visitor complaints, officials at the Pro Football Hall of Fame announced Thursday that they have elected to take down an exhibit featuring a firearm owned by former New England Patriots* tight end and current murder suspect Aaron Hernandez. “While we initially felt that this unique piece represents an important chapter in NFL history, the objections from our patrons have been enough to warrant its removal,” said museum spokesman Joe Horrigan, referring to the Glock .45-caliber pistol that had until this week been prominently displayed alongside a partially emptied 13-round clip recovered from Hernandez’s home. “Though this exhibit provides an interesting look into the lives of one of the game’s most dynamic young talents, we have since been advised that it is in poor taste, and has even made some of our visitors uncomfortable. And for that, we apologize.” Horrigan told reporters that the Hall currently has no plans to modify or remove any of its other popular football memorabilia displays, including O.J. Simpson’s black leather gloves, a variety of choke chains once owned by Michael Vick, and the exhumed corpse of Junior Seau.

Is this the Pro Football Hall of Fame or Ripleys Believe It Or Not? Junior Seau's corpse? Really? Why would Seau's family give his body to the Hall of Fame to display? This isn't an April fools joke is it?

Don't remind us. The Pounceys need to learn to shut up. They look even dumber in retrospect in that picture.

I'm glad that this piece of shit is getting what he deserves. What a complete lowlife idiot. Why some of these guys have the world at their feet and continue to engage in this type of thuggish behavior when they don't have to is beyond me. Anyone that stupid deserves his nightly ass splitting from Bubba.

People are so complicated. And what their motivations are can be hard to say. You'd have to imagine that for most people, especially with the egos a lot of these guys have, they can never get enough of something. Respect, money, fear, whatever.

Huh? Is there a hidden meaning in that statement? Because, whatever it means, now I truly am craving some cotton candy bubble yum and it's too late to run out to the store.
