Prosecutors deny misleading Hernandez witness

Former NFL player Hernandez, accused of killing Lloyd, appears in court for a motion hearing in Attleborough Reuters

With former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez indicted for murder and prosecutors building their case, one of the witnesses claims that prosecutors crossed the line.

According to the Associated Press, prosecutors deny a contention from defense lawyers that investigators told Everett Garcia, a Connecticut inmate, that they were trying “to help Aaron out.”

In paperwork contained within the court file, prosecutors claim that police officers never said that they were trying to help Hernandez, and that they repeatedly told Garcia the discussion was voluntary.

Prosecutors claim that Garcia belongs to a gang in Bristol, Connecticut.  Garcia’s specific connection to any pending or potential allegations against Hernandez is unknown.

Hernandez appeared in court today for a motions hearing.  He is scheduled to be arraigned next Friday at 2:00 p.m. ET.

    So what. The Supreme Court ruled long ago that cops can lie in order to advance an investigation.

    That doesn’t seem fair. Imprisoned gang members are all about the truth.

    The police are not your friends, they do not have to be truthful during an investigation. Dude is right Supreme Court has already ruled on this. If you are stupid and cooperate, get yourself a deal if ur dirty or get a very good attorney.
