Everyone has been speculating it for quite some time but former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has been indicted for first-degree murder. The six-count grand jury charged the 23-year-old for killing Odin Lloyd, whose body was found about a mile from Hernandez’s house last month.
We’ve said it and so has everyone else: Hernandez probably won’t see the light of day again, much less play in the NFL like he reportedly said in a letter he wrote from jail. However, his attorney isn’t planning on his client growing old behind bars just yet.
Michael Fee is representing Hernandez and said after the indictment that he’s excited to get the case to a jury trial because he doesn’t believe the state of Massachusetts has enough evident to prove the charges against the former Pro Bowl tight end.
We’re no legal experts, but if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it probably ain’t a chicken. One thing is for sure: Hernandez won’t be catching passes from Tom Brady again anytime soon.
