Hernandez indicted for murder of Odin Lloyd

Aaron Hernandez AP

As expected for weeks, a grand jury has indicted former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez for the murder of Odin Lloyd, via the Boston Globe.

The indictment comes on the same day Hernandez was due in court for a probable cause hearing, making the hearing moot.

By indicting Hernandez, the grand jury has found that probable cause exists to believe Hernandez killed Lloyd.

Hernandez will remain jailed without bail.  Eventually, a trial date will be set.

Another grand jury reportedly is considering whether Hernandez killed two men in July 2012.  He could be indicted for those murders at any time.

    Guilty as charged. What a loser! Was making money. Young. A whole career ahead of him. Could of been a HOF maybe. All over nothing. What a waste. Oh well

    Crazy that its already been 2 months since he was arrested. Time flys when you’re having fun. I wonder how quick those two months have gone by for Aaron…

    An indictment is a long way from a verdict of guilty. Him getting convicted of murder is about as likely right now as the notion that Foles had a chance at the starting gig in Philly.

    To all the message board lawyers pontificating that people expressing opinions as to Hernandez’s guilt or innocence need to presume he’s innocent or something until the trial is over:

    No we don’t.

    We’re not on the jury. And unlikely to be called to serve on it.

    We’re not in a courtroom. We’re not trying the case.

    You’re not his lawyer and you really need to stop counseling other people to ‘watch what they say’.

    There’s more than enough facts presented in the media thus far to form an opinion as to whether or not Hernandez was involved in murder/s.

    Wow……. I really can’t say anything more than that! I like the first 4(not in that order) but you obviously don’t watch football and it is evident by your number 5 TE.
    Santana moss as number 5 huh? Dude he is a washed up Wr!! You really made me chuckle! I seriously hope this was a gaffe and you really don’t think moss is a TE!

    Charging him with first degree murder may get him the Zimmerman verdict. Ortiz said that Lloyd and Hernandez had shook hands prior to the murder and looked to have smoothed things over.

    It will be hard to establish the murder was preconceived.

    I’m going to second this comment. As well, sorry but Tony Gonzales belongs on this list. Hes HOF and still top 5. Santana Moss is lucky to be playing still, let alone a Top 5 in a position he doesn’t even play. He wouldn’t be top 50 in the position he does play!

    ____________________

    That doesnt seem like a stretch. What better way to get him to let his guard down? He obvously knew there was a reason to be fearful of getting killed, why else would he send his sister the text messages? (not to mention he ultimately ended up getting killed) So AH has a discussion with him, then eventually they come to a mutual agreement that what happened was in the past, and they were going to be good friends moving forward. He pulls down into the industrial park, probably tells him something like he has to take a leak and it will give them a chance to smoke one. They get out, handle their business, and pop, done.

    Again: we’re not in a court of law.

    Innocent until proven guilty…IN A COURT OF LAW.

    Are we in a court of law? No? I can find Hernandez guilty all I want to. Am I on the jury? Am I rendering a verdict that’s going to free or imprison him?

    No?

    Then pardon me & others here if we talk about whether we think he’s guilty or not.

    You assume innocence IF you are in the court system trying this particular person.

    The rest of us don’t have to ASSUME innocence. We can read the papers and follow the newcasts and form our own opinions without self righteous message board lawyers constantly going “Now you’re all assuming he’s INNOCENT, right? RIGHT?!?”

    No, we’re NOT all assuming that. And it’s perfectly fine if we don’t.

    “Gosh hon, we just can’t get this case solved. It’s eating me up inside. I’ve been looking for this murderer EVERYWHERE. I can’t wait to sit down with my beer and watch the Pats. Man, our TE combo is sick!”

The I reason I ask this is because from what I have heard, trying to convict someone of 1st degree murder is rather difficult to, as the prosecution really has to have their Is dotted an Ts crossed. Besides a jury is more reluctant to convict someone in the 1st degree anyway. Like it or not, he may walk, unfortunately.

    Something from the linked Boston Globe article:

    Video surveillance footage showed Hernandez’s car entering the industrial park during the early morning hours of June 17, with Hernandez, Lloyd, Ortiz, and Wallace all visible, according to prosecutors.

    When the car left the industrial park moments later, Lloyd was no longer in the vehicle, his body dumped on the industrial park’s gravel road, prosecutors said.

    Any questions?…

  78. 3yardsandacloud says: Aug 22, 2013 4:15 PM

    I think people need to understand a grand jury is essentially a rubber stamp to charge someone with a crime. Prosecution calls witnesses, prosecutor gets to question without objection or cross examination, grand jury hears testimony slanted towards prosecution.

    Defense calls 0 witnesses. Defense asks 0 questions.

    It would be a bigger story if the grand jury didn’t find probable cause. Innocent to proven guilty does matter, regardless of whether we are “on the jury”. There is a reason cases aren’t tried in the media and the fact that they had to run to a grand jury, instead of the hearing, might be indicative of a weaker than expected case.

  79. puntonfirstdown says: Aug 22, 2013 4:17 PM

    AH called Odin, picked him up, got the other two miscreants to come along for the ride. What is it about premeditated murder (1st degree) that is confusing you here?? Even Odin knew it was over.

    Juries won’t convict if intent is in doubt or perhaps you think he walked into the woods with Odin to play Parcheesi. AH won’t walk and the weapon is a non-issue based on the preponderance of evidence which AH handed to the prosecution in a neat box with a red bow. A grand jury is a good as done. I’m not a lawyer but look it up.
