Hernandez pleads not guilty to all charges

Hernandez AP

To no surprise, former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez pleaded not guilty to all charges related to the murder of Odin Lloyd.

Hernandez delivered the words personally, with far less conviction and panache than O.J. Simpson, who declared himself to be “absolutely, 100 percent not guilty” in the murders of his ex-wife and her friend, Ronald Goldman.  Hernandez spoke softly and at times shifted his eyes will repeatedly reciting the same two words in response to the six charges that formally were entered against him.

His lawyers will at a later date attempt to revisit the issue of bail.  Hernandez has been held without bail since his arrest in late June.

Hernandez is due in court again on October 9.  He could seek bail at that time.

Friday’s hearing also addressed requests by the defense to ensure that authorities in other jurisdictions (such as Connecticut) will preserve all evidence and to prevent the prosecution and others in law enforcement from disclosing information or evidence to the media.

    A hispanic man who killed a black man. Wheres the uproar? Only difference is the one who got the backlash didn’t deserve it.

    picked him up in the last round of my custom fantasy league, which is PPH (points per homicide)

  5. stlunatik says: Sep 6, 2013 3:13 PM

    Set him free and make him play for Arizona. that’s punishment enough…

  6. vincentbojackson says: Sep 6, 2013 3:17 PM

    Well, that settles it. I’m convinced.

    Will he be suiting up for the Pats on Sunday?

  7. virusgvr says: Sep 6, 2013 3:19 PM

    NO WAY!!!!!!

  8. raynman49 says: Sep 6, 2013 3:39 PM

    I can’t believe ESPN had live coverage of this. What did they think was going to happen? Waste of time.

    Ray ray couldnt attend the ravens horrendous game opener because he’s part of hernandez council and who better than ray ray to give advice/sermons about getting away with murder.

    A life in prison is gonna suck but it could be worse, he could’ve been traded to the Jets.

    Big suprise, but someone should tell him that even if he gets around the murder charges, they are definitely going to get him on the weapons charges. That alone is a good 3 years of your life down the drain, not to mention your NFL career is pretty much done.

    Hope it was worth it AH…

  13. AngryHumanoid says: Sep 6, 2013 3:42 PM

    Oh well then he must be innocent, a guilty person wouldn’t lie, would he?

  14. wideright91 says: Sep 6, 2013 3:43 PM

    Will a reporter or two please continue to ask BB and TB about Aaron in the press conferences. Please.

  15. razzmatazzcomics says: Sep 6, 2013 3:46 PM

    He seemed like such a nice man.

    Those who can’t spell “innocent” totally buy into that idea.

    Darn it, I was hoping Michael Fee would put on a knit cap in front of the cameras.

    These crimes PALE in comparison to Rex Ryan taking a day off to watch his son’s first college football game.

  23. seattlecoug says: Sep 6, 2013 4:01 PM

    Should I pick him up in fantasy?

  24. touchdownroddywhite says: Sep 6, 2013 4:03 PM

    Guilty or not, his career is definitely over. He’s walking in murder charges though

  25. whatnojets says: Sep 6, 2013 4:05 PM

    Thank you for my daily dose of crack.
    Now I can watch the Ne York Jets soundly defeat Bevis and the rest of the clowns on the Bucs team!!

    Thank you and have a glorious day

    Whatnojets

  26. newjerseygiants says: Sep 6, 2013 4:06 PM

    Now that we know he’s innocent, we can finally put this behind us.

  27. whatnojets says: Sep 6, 2013 4:12 PM

    Do you think I could borrow Aaron’s car for a few days??

    I wanna invite some media people for dinner and drinks!!

  28. 5wide says: Sep 6, 2013 4:12 PM

    The footage of him holding the gun in his house is damning. You would think being a Patriot and all he would have known how to destroy surveillance footage.

  29. granadafan says: Sep 6, 2013 4:17 PM

    Unfortunately, I would not be surprised if he walked due to stupid jurors falling for the antics of his scummy high priced lawyers. After watching OJ, George Zimmerman, Robert Blake, Casey Anthony, etc walk in the face of overwhelming evidence, I don’t have much faith in jurors.

  30. rscalzo says: Sep 6, 2013 4:17 PM

    Shocking. I really thought his lawyer would walk in and tell the court he’s guilty of all charges and wrap it up right there.

    He sees no need to rack up millions in legal fees.

    Aaron Hernandez is as guilty as I am of writing this comment.

  32. raynman49 says: Sep 6, 2013 4:42 PM

    adx321,
    No, but that’s a good zinger!

    Its New England. Of course they were gonna air this.

    Didnt you know the formula?

    NFL+NE Patriots+ESPN= worlds largest circle jerk

    Dennis Allen’s Outgoing Persona

    Must you bring up race?…

    There is always that 1 idiot that wants to turn everything into race…..then complain about everything Being about race…shut up.

  37. thirdistheworrd says: Sep 6, 2013 4:55 PM

    That means he didn’t actually do it, right?

  38. sadtwinsfan says: Sep 6, 2013 5:08 PM

    since i don’t have much to cheer about these days and with the cold dark off season fast approaching, for my entertainment pleasure i sure hope ARod somehow winds up being connected to this.

    some mutual murkey criminal association in the miami area? it could happen.

    Agreed, race is a social construct that is talked about way too much. But to have someone crucified based on that fact and have it completely ignored in another is a head scratcher.

    There is always that 1 idiot that feels the need to believe he’s intelligent on the internet. Good try though.

    “Will a reporter or two please continue to ask BB and TB about Aaron in the press conferences. Please.”

    They can ask all they want but Belichick and Brady won’t answer. Legally they actually can’t talk about it and even if they could talk about it they wouldn’t because it has nothing to do with either of them.

    This is about Aaron Hernandez, not the New England Patriots.

  41. drich1960 says: Sep 6, 2013 5:41 PM

    Doesn’t look like he’s seen much sun lately
    SKOL VIKES

  42. Bearfan54 says: Sep 6, 2013 6:17 PM

    What they are probably considering is letting him out on bail, and then following him everywhere hoping he will lead them to the gun or other pieces of the crime that are missing. I’m sure he wants to cover some tracks that he left. Criminals always think they are smart but in one way or another, they will lead investigators right back to the crime scene.

  43. flavordave says: Sep 6, 2013 8:38 PM

    He looks like the monkey that speaks no evil.

  44. iamapatsfan says: Sep 6, 2013 8:46 PM

    I look forward to the next MF article when some dumby reporter asks BB about this like four times, changing one word each time, on Sunday and BB says something along the lines of, “you’re an idiot”,and MF feels he MUST report on BB’s lack of kindness and friendship at a press conference, stating something like, “if he acts like a jerk enough, people will start believing he is a jerk…”

    Should be good.

  45. the8man says: Sep 6, 2013 8:53 PM

    In for a penny, in for a pound…

    Who will provide live in court coverage? HLN? NBC? CNN?

    Stupid jurors? They would of been stupid if they found Zimmerman guilty of the charges he was brought up on because there was not one bit of evidence on him for what he was charged with. Did you watch the trial?

  47. sc49ers says: Sep 6, 2013 9:56 PM

    Whatever i supposed to believe your not guilty come on…….every criminal is supposed to plead not guilty…..

  48. harry1941 says: Sep 6, 2013 11:20 PM

    Hernandez will join the Jets, after he’s found not guilty.

  49. jimeejohnson says: Sep 7, 2013 12:56 PM

    The O.J. got away with murder, but he still wound up doing time. Nobody gets away with murder in the long run.
