Hernandez will be facing more than murder charges on Wednesday

Hernandez AP

When arraigned on his latest collection of criminal charges in a Boston courthouse on Wednesday afternoon, former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez will formally hear that he has been indicted for the July 2012 murders of Safiro Furtado and Daniel Abreu.  But Hernandez will hear more than that.

Albert Breer of NFL Network, citing the Suffolk County District Attorney, reports that Hernandez also will be charged with three counts of armed assault with intent to murder, and that he will be charged with a count of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and unlawful possession of a firearm.

The seven total charges all arise from the allegation that Hernandez fired bullets into the automobile in which the deceased and others were sitting on the evening in question, after leaving a Boston nightclub.

The authorities apparently became aware of Hernandez’s role in a case that was growing cold last June after the murder of Odin Lloyd.  With Lloyd unable to testify in connection with the Furtado and Abreu murders, another guy who allegedly was once shot by Hernandez, Alexander Bradley, could end up being a key witness.

Bradley sued Hernandez last year for allegedly shooting Bradley in the face in February 2013.  Via CNN, Bradley allegedly was with Hernandez on the night Furtado and Abreu were shot.

Regardless of the outcome of the various charges pending against Hernandez, he stands accused of committing at least three murders while playing for an NFL team.  As NFL crime sprees go, it’s unprecedented.  Even if his lawyers find a way to conjure reasonable doubt at trial as to each of the killings, it’s hard to imagine any team in the league ever taking a chance on him again.

    Hernandez will be fully exonerated by 2016.

    Hernandez’s NFL career is going to be in serious jeopardy if he commits one or two more murders.

    Not so fast you might want to check with the Ravens their standards are pretty low…..see Lewis and Rice.

    This guy makes OJ Simpson look like a boyscout

  5. hehateme2 says: May 28, 2014 8:49 AM

    And he totally duped Kraft and the pats brass. “Let’s extend him and give him millions.”

    Not as bright as the want you to think they are, eh?

    Richie Incognito getting another chance in the NFL is hard to imagine. Alien beings invading Earth next week is really hard to imagine. Hernandez ever playing again in the NFL is IMPOSSIBLE to imagine.

    like a good swift kick in the pants from his momma :)

    He’s gonna be facing Big Bubba and Nasty Nate when he returns to his cell. Enjoy, courtesy of the Dept of Corrections.

    To the guy who thinks Hernandez will be exonerated by 2016 – why do you think that?

    “I just know he will” is not an acceptable answer. Why do you think they won’t be able to prove their case?

    they should also indict the tattoo “artist” who worked on his back… looks like the scribbling of a 3yr old

    Personally, I hope to hear some solid evidence with this double murder charge. The Lloyd case seems to have more there for the jury to eat off of. The prosecution can come out of this looking real dumb if they are just looking to close cases.

    Regardless, in these times of evidence, jurors and so-called clear cases, we know they are anything but.

    I still haven’t seen one TE come close to the ability he displayed in his brief playing career. In terms of agility and his ability to get open he was the first modern day incarnation of Kellen Winslow Sr. TE’s aren’t supposed to move like Percy Harvin.

    I hope Hernandez enjoys rotting the rest of his life behind bars.

    Do they have the guns he killed them with? or video footage of him actually killing them? i want to see what kind of evidence they bring against this guy in court.

  16. whatnojets says: May 28, 2014 9:15 AM

    Does he know the whereabouts of Jimmy Hoffa???

    ___________________________
    If I am not mistaken, they do have the gun. They got it from his cousin after she was involved in a traffic accident. The weapon was in the trunk of her car. Though, there are so many twists and turns, maybe I am not remembering that correctly.

    I also would like to see what evidence they have, but based on the briliance of AH and his goons, I wouldnt be surprised if they shot their own video of the shooting, labeled it as such, and left it on the shelf right next to the box of ammo… I also imagine they were able to recovery a ton of evidence from the vehicle. Seems that after the shooting, AH just left it in his uncles garage. I am pretty sure there was no effort to ensure the vehicle was “sanitized” of all evidence. Why wouldnt he have just donated the car to charity, or sold it in a private sale, or traded it in, etc??? Why keep the vehicle? Unless it was like a trophy for him?

    @whatnotjets –

    Of course. He most likely used his millions to travel back in time and personally kill Jimmy Hoffa.

    Seriously though, they are obviously going to hit him with any possible charges they can from all angles to keep him behind bars for as long as feasibly possible. At least they’re learning from past mistakes with high profile, wealthy psychos…

    What a scumbag. He looks like the kind of guy who’d walk up to your wife and at wal mart and ask for her number while you’re standing right there lol.

  20. igotgamenj says: May 28, 2014 9:30 AM

    Can’t believe no coaches or players ever had any idea that this guy was a piece of garbage

  21. shaner73 says: May 28, 2014 9:31 AM

    We all thought Casey Anthony, OJ Simpson and George Zimmerman was going to be found guilty. #idiotjurors

  22. blackqbwhiterb says: May 28, 2014 9:32 AM

    I guess you never really REALLY know a guy, huh?

  23. annes22 says: May 28, 2014 9:43 AM

    Ritchie Incognito looks like an angel compared to this idiot.

  24. 2001asterisk2003asterisk2004asterisk says: May 28, 2014 10:05 AM

    thanks for bringing him to NE area patriots organization. oh wait, Kraft was duped.

  25. idothis2 says: May 28, 2014 10:26 AM

    Good ole Patriot Way…

  26. dannyblaze62 says: May 28, 2014 11:25 AM

    Long drawn out trials and he will probably walk when the prosecution shows no real evidence except hearsay and allegation.

  27. thepittsburghkid says: May 28, 2014 11:37 AM

    This dude is full blown, real deal narco culture, even the Cartels in Mexico are impressed.

    I hope you didnt just think of that, teh NFL moved on the moment this fool was remotely connected to Odin Lloyd’s murder.

  29. ragnarthemagnificent says: May 28, 2014 1:29 PM

    I’m sure all those tats are just a tribute to his mum

  30. surfinbird1 says: May 28, 2014 1:53 PM

    I understand from the news this morning that charges of gun running from Fla. to Mass. will be coming soon. By the time all his trials are over he will die of old age in the slammer.

  31. imnotsorryisaidthat says: May 28, 2014 8:48 PM

    Its almost like this guy wanted to get caught

  32. jimmysee says: May 29, 2014 9:34 PM
