Default Re: Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez to be Questioned

Now they're convening a Grand Jury for the 2012 Murders. Not looking very good for the boy.

Case against Hernandez for July 2012 double murder is building momentum

Posted by Mike Florio on July 23, 2013, 8:50 PM EDT


At a time when a grand jury in Bristol County, Massachusetts likely is closing in on an indictment of former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez for the June 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd, a grand jury in Suffolk County, Massachusetts could likewise indict Hernandez for the July 2012 shooting deaths of Safiro Furtado and Daniel Abreu.

Two unnamed law-enforcement officials tell Maria Cramer of the Boston Globe that prosecutors have begun making the case to a grand jury that Hernandez should be charged with two more counts of murder.

The process involves evidence only from the prosecution, with no defense presented by Hernandezís lawyers and a low standard of proof. If the grand jury believes probable cause exists to conclude that Hernandez is guilty, the grand jury can issue an indictment.

Still, few prosecutors seek an indictment unless they believe that the higher standard of proof beyond a reasonable doubt can be met at trial.

Absent testimony from one or more persons who witnessed Hernandez fire the shots that killed Furtado and Abreu, the case against Hernandez will be based on circumstantial evidence. That doesnít mean heíll be acquitted; still, itís always easier to prove the case when thereís a witness who can credibly say that he or she saw the defendant do what he allegedly did.
