Aaron Hernandez Found Not Guilty in Boston Double Murder Trial

By Anthony Blake

Already serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole, one would think that Aaron Hernandez would be immune to any emotion over being prosecuted.

But that was not the case when the former New England Patriots tight end was acquitted of a double murder in Boston.

He was also acquitted on witness intimidation charges, but Hernandez was convicted on the unlawful carrying of a .38-caliber revolver and sentenced to four to five years in prison for that offense.

After a week-long deliberation, the jury finally reached verdicts on all counts on Friday.

Hernandez will still be behind bars for the rest of his life after the murder of Odin Lloyd, but both he and his family seemed relieved over the acquittal in this case.
