Things aren’t looking good for Aaron Hernandez right now, but he does still have his mom in his corner.
Terri Hernandez, Hernandez’s mother, told the Bristol Press in the family’s hometown of Bristol, Connecticut that she is sure her son is innocent and will be exonerated in the murder of Odin Lloyd, as well as the other crimes he’s accused of.
“All I can say is that he will be cleared of all these charges in the end,” she said as she walked inside her home. “Just let it play out until the end.”
The mayor of Bristol, Art Ward, also weighed in on the case.
“It’s devastating for the family. It’s devastating for the community,” Ward said. “It’s a sad state of affairs.”
Hernandez was born and raised in Bristol and was Connecticut’s high school football player of the year in his senior season at Bristol Central High School.
