Hernandez will be arraigned Friday

The words "blood" and "sweat" are seen tattooed on the hands of former NFL player Hernandez, as he appears in court for a motion hearing in Attleborough Reuters

On Thursday, the NFL season officially kicks off.  On Friday, the murder case against former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez does, too.

He’ll be arraigned in Fall River Superior Court at 2:00 p.m. ET, via FOX 29 in Boston.  As Fred Gwynne once showed Joe Pesci, it’s an easy process — guilty or not guilty.  Or, possibly “absolutely, 100 percent not guilty.”

Hey, it worked for the last NFL player who tried it.

Hernandez has been held without bail since late June.  Once he’s arraigned, a trial date likely will be set.

He also is being investigated in the July 2012 murder of two men who were shot in Boston.  A grand jury reportedly is exploring the case, and it could in theory indict him at any time.

    Only 2 ways for him to get off – either, like OJ, the prosecution screws up or, like OJ, the jury thinks reasonable doubt = police conspiracy.

    This guy will be solitary confinement for the term. Lots of cons want to make their bones taking him out for street cred.Even Gotti had to pay Aryan Nation protection money in the can at Marion.

    Semi-dumb question: If Hernandez is formally charged with the July 2012 double murder, could that case be tried simultaneously with the Odin Lloyd case? Or would that be a separate trial all together?

    Anyone with legal insight, please reply.

    Anyone else really enjoy America’s game – the 2012 Baltimore Ravens last night on NFL network?

    Life in prison with no parole. Take all of his money lawyers. Leave all of his ghetto associates broke.

    AH better keep his head on a swivel.
    I have a feeling lots of dudes going to to
    try and get some prison cred by tangling with AH.

    Don’t worry Hernandez, “the” legal standard publication, Rolling Stone Magazine says you’ll get off.

  17. nhstateline says: Sep 3, 2013 11:06 AM

    Would they try him for three murders at once ? Doubtful because they’re not related and they took place in different counties and different municipalities. I would imagine they’ll start with the Odin Lloyd case and see if they win it before doing anything else.

    Mass does not have the death penalty

    If convicted I’m guessing the coffee cup Hernandez runs along the prison bars while proclaiming his innocence will be pretty stylish…

    I need to know if those cups have gang ties before I make my opinion about his guilt….need to see the design….

    He’s also facing a number of gun charges related to the Lloyd murder. Even if he bet the murder case, he has almost no defense against the gun charges. It’s pretty unlikely he’d beat those and that would be several years out of his career before he was released.
