Hernandez Pleads Not Guilty

Quote:
Hernandez, already charged with killing another man last year, pleaded not guilty Wednesday to seven charges -- including two counts of first-degree murder -- in the July 2012 shooting that killed Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado. A third man was wounded.

(Not that any of this is an excuse for murder).
My father before suicide in 2005, locked me and my mother in a room put chains on the door poured gas in the house and lit it on fire my grandmother drove into the front of the house and saved us. He also shot at us, beat us then eventually committed suicide in 2005. He was only this way while he was drinking which he did alot when he wasnt drinking he was the best father a boy could ask for, this is why i rarely drink.

Point is that everyone has a sad story blah blah blah but nothing gives anyone the right to take someone elses life, nothing.

Not everybody carries those types of visions of their childhood... has experienced those terrors at the hand of a parent. It was wrong you had to go through that. I'm sorry for your father's loss, as well.


Hernandez chose his lifestyle, and became increasingly irrationally, murderously paranoid. He'll get his.

I have heard so many stories like yours......but each one always unique in their own way. Thanks for sharing your personal story. There is no doubt that it took a great deal of effort to emerge as the responsible father and husband you have obviously become. I can hardly imagine how such a childhood history would have ultimately affected me as I went through life, although I would have never allowed myself to turn to murder under any circumstances. Again thanks for sharing.

Someone might have tried. He was involved in a "prison incident"....it appears to have worked out poorly for the other party.

Full Court Press: Insanity defense? Aaron Hernandez lawyers want med records
Wednesday, June 18, 2014
By Bob McGovern

Aaron Hernandez’s legal team is bearing down on the New England Patriots in an attempt to gain access to a treasure trove of medical records that could play right into an insanity defense for the tattooed former tight end.

Michael Fee and James Sultan, the all-star defense duo for the disgraced former Pro Bowler in the Odin L. Lloyd murder case, want all records concerning Hernandez’s “psychological testing, medication records, X-rays, MRIs, CT scans (and) drug or alcohol abuse-related reports” while with the Patriots, according to yesterday’s filing. If the Pats cough the records up — or if a judge forces them to — Hernandez could carry that file all the way to a jury.

“They could be setting up a defense that perhaps he wasn’t in his right mind that night, either by a mental health issue that he had or some type of drug or alcohol he was under the influence of, or both,” said David Yannetti, a criminal defense attorney not involved in the case.


Hernandez, 24, faces an Oct. 6 trial in the murder of semi-pro football player Odin L. Lloyd of Dorchester a year ago yesterday in North Attleboro. He also faces other charges in a double murder in Boston. The medical file in the Lloyd case is fast becoming a major issue and the Patriots, so far, refuse to respond.

In Massachusetts, first-degree murder requires “deliberately premeditated malice aforethought.” If the Patriots’ records show that Hernandez was mentally impaired — either by drugs, concussions or something else — the charge of first-degree murder could be off the table.

“The only thing that makes sense to me is if there’s a possibility that he had a pre-existing mental condition that’s demonstrated through some of the Patriots’ background information,” said Tim Burke, a former Suffolk prosecutor not involved in the case.

It could also push the trial back. Should defense attorneys get their hands on some insanity-defense evidence, experts need to be called in.

If the prosecutors establish the events leading up to Lloyd’s death, however, “there’s so much out there that suggests that there was a premeditated act … it would essentially nullify any insanity defense,” Burke added.

The information on those files could also be used against prosecutors.

“Some of these records may be protected by 
HIPPA. If the Patriots released them without his authority to prosecutors, there may be a violation of the HIPPA laws regarding privacy,” Burke said of the medical privacy law. “Maybe they’re looking to see if prosecutors already have them, in which case there could be a violation.”

If it turns out prosecutors got their hands on the former NFL player’s records first, and didn’t get them by court-approved methods, the evidence could be kept away from jurors if defense attorneys ask.

It could also just be that Hernandez’s attorneys don’t want to be caught sleeping when prosecutors start laying out their case.

Part of being prepared means knowing your client, inside and out.

New England Patriots added to wrongful death suit against Aaron Hernandez

Quote:
By Lorenzo Ferrigno, CNN

updated 10:50 PM EDT, Thu June 19, 2014

Watch "Downward Spiral: Inside the Case Against Aaron Hernandez" on Tuesday, June 24, at 9 p.m. ET on CNN.

New York (CNN) -- The families of two men who were fatally shot are suing the New England Patriots and its owners to prevent the football team from paying former player Aaron Hernandez, who has been charged in their slayings.

The NFL team and its owner's company, Kraft Enterprises, have been named as co-defendants in a $6 million civil wrongful death lawsuit along with Hernandez.

The attorney for the families is asking the court to prohibit the Patriots and its owners from paying Hernandez $3.25 million and other funds that may become due to Hernandez, who has pleaded not guilty to the murder charges.

The National Football League Players Association has filed a grievance on behalf of the former tight end after the team failed to pay him the multimillion-dollar sum, which was due in March, the lawsuit says.

The wrongful death lawsuit was originally filed in February on behalf of the families of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado, according to court papers.

The lawsuit alleges that the victims' families have sustained both fiscal and emotional damages.

Prosecutors say that in July 2012, Hernandez fatally shot de Abreu and Furtado in their car after de Abreu accidentally bumped into Hernandez and spilled his drink at a nightclub earlier in the evening.

"We are seeking to have the families who have been victimized by these deaths have some assets set aside that they may be somehow compensated," according to a written statement from William Kennedy, the families' attorney. "The two young men in our case both supported their mothers with their modest earnings. That support and emotional attachment has been lost forever.

"Our information is that Hernandez has received over $11M in compensation in the 3 years as a Patriot," Kennedy added. "Part of his funds and assets should be set aside for the victims of his crime. The victims should be compensated."

CNN has reached out to the Patriots and Kraft Enterprises but has not yet received a response.

Quote:
Hernandez's next scheduled hearing in Fall River Superior Court is July 7, 3 p.m., for a compliance check on discovery materials and the filing of a pretrial conference report. The judge will probably issue her ruling on the suppression/dismissal motions by then.


The trial date for Hernandez in Fall River was "penciled in" for Oct. 6, but that is likely to change as the case proceeds forward with motions and counter-motions, and possibly appeals.


One interesting thing to note: the defense team hinted it may request a change of venue because of the intense pretrial publicity. As to where that new venue would be is up in the air, as it remains difficult to imagine any jurisdiction in Massachusetts, or pretty much almost all of New England east of New Haven for that matter, where the Hernandez case has not generated a lot of attention and news coverage.
