Shayanna Jenkins, the girlfriend of former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, faces charges of lying to a grand jury investigating the murder of Odin Lloyd.
According to prosecutors, Jenkins lied 29 times.
Via the Boston Globe, prosecutors outlined the various alleged falsehoods in court papers filed in connection with the case. The alleged untruths include lies regarding conversations with Hernandez on June 18, when he allegedly called from his lawyer’s office and told her to remove items from the house.
She also allegedly lied about why she removed the things, about her lack of knowledge as to what the objects were, and about how she got rid of the objects.
With 29 different swings of the proverbial bat, the prosecution needs to connect only once to get a conviction. The overriding goal could be to get Hernandez to strike a deal in order to protect the mother of his young child.
