Aaron Hernandez is running out of money

Hernandez AP

After spending nearly a year behind bars and dealing with an ever-growing list of legal issues, former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez apparently is running out of cash.

As first reported by Kevin Vaughn of FOX Sports, Hernandez is having trouble paying his lawyers.  Two of the men who appeared at this week’s arraignment on double murder charges, Charles Rankin and James Sultan, filed court documents indicating they may no longer be representing Hernandez.

Rankin and Sullivan, along with Michael Fee, have served as Hernandez’s primary counsel.  Fee has not filed a similar motion.

On one hand, something doesn’t feel right about lawyers bleeding a millionaire dry and then cutting him lose when he’s out of money.  On the other hand, lawyers will end up being out of money if they work for free.

Complicating matters is that Hernandez has been unable to sell his house in North Attleboro, due to the wrongful-death civil lawsuits filed by his three alleged victims.  The home, purchased by Hernandez for $1.3 million in November 2012, could eventually be sold to provide compensation to the families.

Hernandez also could see an infusion of $3.25 million.  That’s the remaining installment of his 2012 signing bonus, which the Patriots refused to pay in March 2014.  While the labor deal gives teams the ability to recover signing bonus money when a player becomes incarcerated, the Patriots chose to quickly cut ties with Hernandez, arguably forfeiting their ability to keep the $3.25 million or to pursue other money from Hernandez.

On Friday, Patriots owner Robert Kraft refused to elaborate on the situation during an event at Gillette Stadium.

“When he was arrested, we cut him from the team, I was very clear about it,” Kraft said, via Tom Curran of CSNNE.com.  “You can go back and read what I said then. That’s the way I feel, and will continuously feel.”

Feelings of being “duped” may not be enough to allow Kraft and the Patriots to keep their $3.25 million.  The only good news for the team is that, if/when the money is paid, Hernandez will likely never actually get any of it, not with three wrongful-death lawsuits and at least three lawyers who have been spending a lot of time working on his various cases.

    Not to worry. If the convicitions stick, he’ll have his room and board covered for the rest of his natural life.

  2. camdenyard says: May 31, 2014 9:57 AM

    Kraft has no legal righjt to keep that money. It should go to the victims.

  3. bucsorbust says: May 31, 2014 9:57 AM

    One thing is for sure, the lawyers are always the clear winners. If Hernandez is guilty as charged, I hope he runs out of life as well as money–if you know what I mean. It’s a shame we taxpayers would have to pay to keep this loser breathing.

  4. jibberator says: May 31, 2014 9:58 AM

    Man that 3 mil will buy a lot of top ramen in prison. Hell be eating like a king.

  5. bucsorbust says: May 31, 2014 9:58 AM

    Hey Aaron, have you met Bubba yet?

  6. joeflaccoallday says: May 31, 2014 9:59 AM

    Feel bad for this man now. #FreeHernandez

  7. aurelh23 says: May 31, 2014 10:00 AM

    So Lawyers charged him millions of dollars in fees and they haven’t even come to a verdict or court decision on guilty or not guilty…

    Only in America can you pay that much and realistically not have anything done for you.

  8. goldbloodedindfw says: May 31, 2014 10:01 AM

    Maybe he should have thought about that before murdering three people. I don’t feel one bit bad for him.

  9. brownsalwaysrebuilding says: May 31, 2014 10:02 AM

    Never been a Patriots fan but they did handle the Hernandez situation better than a lot of teams probably would have.

  10. alshonbrandontandem says: May 31, 2014 10:02 AM

    To bad Johnny Cochran isn’t alive. He’d be out of jail already.

  11. bucrightoff says: May 31, 2014 10:04 AM

    He can do some murder for hire behind bars. That’ll combine his two favourite things, making money and killing people.

  12. dhardy8207 says: May 31, 2014 10:05 AM

    Karma!…..

  13. zappaisgod says: May 31, 2014 10:07 AM

    First two rule for lawyers. 1. Get paid 2. Don’t be the one that goes to jail.

  14. bradyisyourdaddy says: May 31, 2014 10:08 AM

    His lawyers were very bad. Disheveled looking with a weak “its not fair” defense regarding the media being in the court room.

    I think he is already using discount legal counsel.

  15. sterling7 says: May 31, 2014 10:10 AM

    Makes sense, he ran out of brains a long time ago!

  16. seatownballers says: May 31, 2014 10:11 AM

    Killing your friends is expensive

  17. keylimelight says: May 31, 2014 10:11 AM

    “On the other hand, lawyers will end up being out of money if they work for free.”

    On another hand, let’s say each of his attorneys has already been paid a million dollars a piece and the billable hours will stretch out for years to come. How much money does one have to cough up for a competent defense?

    Too bad for Hernandez that members of the bar would never negotiate a flat rate based on a percentage of income.

  18. luther6 says: May 31, 2014 10:16 AM

    Hey Aaron, when the money’s gone, you’ll have prison to look forward to. After prison? Death and Hell for eternity. Have a great ride, you animal.

  19. ptboy24 says: May 31, 2014 10:22 AM

    No money. No hope to play in the NFL. Add to it he wont even have top lawyers… Look for a plea bargin that will keep him from doing life prison.

  20. GenoAtkinswillnotbestopped says: May 31, 2014 10:24 AM

    Save everyone a ton of money and euthanize this creep. He is stealing air from people who deserve to breathe it.

  21. justintuckrule says: May 31, 2014 10:25 AM

    Seriously… What have the lawyers done for him thus far? I haven’t read that they filed any motions. Investigations and appearing at a few arraignments shouldn’t cost millions.

  22. fosterpops01 says: May 31, 2014 10:28 AM

    Didn’t he have any pocket change before he got busted?

  23. fiverings37 says: May 31, 2014 10:29 AM

    ain’t that just awful.

  24. ziplock10 says: May 31, 2014 10:32 AM

    He will be re-born in Africa or someplace where babies die very young and will suffer according to the laws of mother earth.

  26. 4thandlonger says: May 31, 2014 10:35 AM

    Maybe he can team up with Donald Sterling. Heck Sterling can be his lawyer. And together they can take down all of the blacks/rot in hell.

  27. petecarrolmorelikecheatpayroll says: May 31, 2014 10:39 AM

    Aaron Hernandez just choked a wad of Ben Franklin’s, Andrew Jackson and Grant in his cell for running away from him. What a disgraceful loser he really is.

  28. lucimorland says: May 31, 2014 10:39 AM

    Does it matter if he runs out of cash? This dude will never see the outside of a prison.

    Say goodnight…..to the bad guy.

  30. djstickypants says: May 31, 2014 10:43 AM

    Good strategy by the prosecution. Bleed him and plea him

  31. 1rockyracoon says: May 31, 2014 10:45 AM

    If he played for the 49′ers or Ravevs he would still have a place on the team. The coaches would probably have visited him.

  32. ravenswhat says: May 31, 2014 10:46 AM

    Game over Aaron.

    Awww…

  34. kd75 says: May 31, 2014 10:52 AM

    Can they pay him in cigarettes?

    Its a whole different economy in jail.

  35. stillers213 says: May 31, 2014 10:52 AM

    He needs to do everyone a favor and just plead guilty and save whatever money is left for all of the innocent people he left in wake of his rampage(s).

  36. notthetroll says: May 31, 2014 10:53 AM

    Lawyers shouldn’t be able to draw things out so long that they effectively leech out a defendant’s wealth. There isn’t a reason on the planet good enough that if found guilty, he won’t have anything left to pay in restitution because the lawyers took it all.

  37. corvusrex96 says: May 31, 2014 10:53 AM

    Rule #1 when choosing a lawyer. Don’t hire one with the last name “Fee”

  38. antalicus says: May 31, 2014 10:59 AM

    Is it even possible to be seen by a jury as not guilty when your lawyers bail on you ’cause of money?

  39. inallsincerity says: May 31, 2014 11:03 AM

    “On one hand, something doesn’t feel right about lawyers bleeding a millionaire dry and then cutting him lose when he’s out of money.  On the other hand, lawyers will end up being out of money if they work for free.”

    Lawyers being out of money when they’ve worked on this case for the past two years??? I doubt it, especially after learning what they charge just to read an email. Reminds me of the joke about being on an elevator with a lawyer, tiger and lion and having a gun with one bullet. Whom do you shoot first?

  40. bucsorbust says: May 31, 2014 11:05 AM

    So Hernandez pleaded not guilty to all. If guilty, I wonder if he can do one decent thing and show some extreme remorse to the families.

  41. bucsorbust says: May 31, 2014 11:08 AM

    He needs cash? Maybe he and Bubba can work out a payment plan.

  45. edavidberg says: May 31, 2014 11:32 AM

    If you are going to hire a criminal lawyer you would do well to negotiate a flat fee. This happens all too often as major cases take years to litigate and the lawyers have no incentive to be efficient when they can milk the client for what he’s got and get out of the case before trial.

  46. MedicFL1 says: May 31, 2014 11:35 AM

    In America your guilty until proven innocent. That assumption is true even before the media gets involved.
    Sure hope he did it because, as you can see, the public already has you guilty.
    Good luck finding an impartial jury.

  47. vusnu says: May 31, 2014 11:39 AM

    Hernandez really isn’t going to need much money anymore given that he’ll be spending the rest of his life behind bars.

  48. mrsryansfamoustoejam says: May 31, 2014 11:40 AM

    It is truly amazing how my attorney can bill me for working nearly 36 hours a day. I’m not sure how he does it, but he has to be the hardest working man on the planet.

  49. keltictim says: May 31, 2014 11:44 AM

    Unfortunately a liberal judge may have already set in motion the means of AH acquittal. There was an illegal alien in MA who killed a person drunk driving, the judge attempted to free the individual based on the fact that whatever South American locale he’s from the people there lack an enzyme that’s used to process alcohol, meaning he was wasted it’s not his fault he killed someone. AHs lawyers have already laid the ground work for his “angel dust” defense. If the right lawyer gets in front of the right judge he maybe able to use the previous precedent to get AH off on at least manslaughter. Scary.

  50. jrcowboy49 says: May 31, 2014 11:49 AM

    He is entitled to a fair trial and if convicted he is entitled to a fair death! So get with it!

  51. kokomike says: May 31, 2014 11:57 AM

    Like O.J. Simpson, Hernandez’ NFL pension money may not be touchable in lawsuits. Although, I don’t know if Hernandez has enough NFL time for a pension.

  52. isphet71 says: May 31, 2014 11:59 AM

    This man needs the Chewbacca Defense. Stat.

  53. whatjusthapped says: May 31, 2014 11:59 AM

    He has a constitutional right to representation, the court will make sure he has a lawyer, maybe not one that charges $500 per hour but he will definitely have one. Just don’t ask me to feel bad when its a public assistance lawyer.

  54. loubearkane says: May 31, 2014 12:13 PM

    Don’t feel bad for his fiance/wife she knew what kind of man she was with , I do feel bad for the baby he/she is going to grow up without a father and a mother that doesn’t seem to be the best decision maker / judge of character.

  55. motsuret06 says: May 31, 2014 12:13 PM

    Lawyers are the vacuum cleaners of wallets and bank accounts and they are going to drain Hernandez dry soon enough. If his is guilty of what he is charged with, then I feel a lot more for the families of the victims than for Hernandez. What is taking so long for these cases to come to trial? Probably more delays so lawyers can collect more money.

  56. slick50ks says: May 31, 2014 12:17 PM

    The least ethical people in this country are lawyers. The truth is ALWAYS negotiable. And the bottom line is, a lawyer puts his own interests first and foremost.

  59. 64post says: May 31, 2014 12:26 PM

    His accomplice(s) have NO money and public defenders. Associate yourself with selfish psychopaths that are in the limelight. This guy took down many people around him, not just the one’s he shot.

  60. u4iadman says: May 31, 2014 12:29 PM

    Kraft knew what he was getting with this playa, so don’t hide now tool. Pay up so the money can go to the victims.

    Not a Hernandez fan at all.

    Not double standard Kraft.

    Actually I think she faces charges as well. Her sister was apparently dating or affiliated with Lloyd at some point. She is facing a “interferring with an investigation” and lying to investigators about some details she offered up trying to keep him out of jail….

  70. jmota222 says: May 31, 2014 2:18 PM

    What a shame! As a Connecticut native I can tell you that he was one of the few to make it to the big time. To see how incredibly dumb and mis guided , that’s a tragedy in itself. Prayers go out to the family’s of the deceased!

  71. seachicken64 says: May 31, 2014 2:53 PM

    too bad he isn’t running out of people he has been charged with murdering.

  72. tominma says: May 31, 2014 2:58 PM

    Oh poor Aaron cant pay his lawyers. My heart is breaking so bad. This is a guy who valued his gang ties more than being a renowned football player with plenty of money! I wonder if he ever thinks about that in jail.

    It’s a good thing they don’t allow bill collectors’ calls into the jail!!

    Any money that Hernandez could have coming to him, that is kept from his and his lawyers hands, is a good thing. The longer this money is kept away, the better the chance that it will eventually end up going to victims families. Ray Lewis is good at paying victims families, maybe he can also chip in.

  77. oilerthentexandiehard says: May 31, 2014 4:15 PM

    yeah, most of us are running out of money, too.

    But most of us aren’t fupped enough to blow a $40 million contract for a few years of service, and most of us have at least 3 more acquaintances that could still possibly help us out.

  78. politicallyincorrect says: May 31, 2014 4:22 PM

    LOL at “we was duped” Pats owner.. what a classless org…

    but hope Hernandez runs out of money and is left unprotected in prison…if courts or laws don’t allow just punishment, let’s hope inmates can take care of him and prevent taxpayers from having to support him….

  79. brownsfanincali says: May 31, 2014 4:59 PM

    It’s time for ” The Longest Yard III “, but this one stars mostly actual pro and college players in prison, and called The National Felons League …. starring AH, OJ, etc. … co-starring soon-to-be inmates Josh Gordon, Will Hill, Darryl Washington, just to name a few. Also starring Kevin Costner, as the tough-but-fair Warden/Coach. Jennifer Garner as Costner’s pregnant love interest
    ( spoiler alert : O.J. is the REAL father ) . Hilarity and drama as Costner turns misfit Nazi White Supremacists, Latino Gang- Bangers, and sociopathic serial murderers into first-class football team. Bill Belichick also has a heartwarming cameo as ” Pop”, kindly, old team trainer with a heart of gold.

    It’s got to be better than ” Draft Day “, right ?

    Premier should be on 4/20/2015 …

  80. doggeatdogg says: May 31, 2014 5:02 PM

    The victims’ families should put an injunction to make sure the lawyers don’t pay themselves. They can pay themselves to eternity with zero hopes of this criminal getting lose. Aaron should get a public defender or less costly lawyers to handle his plea and consider taking care of his family with the money he has left. Anyway, his money has been hidden by him and his family so he can claim poverty.

  81. bannedfromchoirpractice says: May 31, 2014 5:19 PM

    Funny how judges can be so uppity about the legal process in this country, considering the influence that cash (or the lack thereof) has on the process. It is actually a display of their own lack of integrity, to be so uppity about such corrupt institution.

  85. alewatcher says: May 31, 2014 7:42 PM

    NE did the right thing in cutting Hernandez immediately, regardless of the cap consequences. I’m pretty sure Bob Kraft would willingly hand over the $3.25M to the families of the victims.

  86. jujubefruit says: May 31, 2014 8:21 PM

    taking advantage of a convict’s earned savings while the convict rots in prison is a matter of fair business and no lawyers so far made public awareness for fair business in draining a convict’s life savings while the convict rots in prison….Yet, there exists lots of lawyers willing to brave questions of moral values and conduct in regards to fair business of others in other industry of business.

    What this thinking process is leading too is that USA lawyers are willing to fight for external customer client’s value but has not foresight or vision to explore internal industry vision to have provision to charge against a client’s life saving while the client rots in prison.

    It’s like working for a professional who charges to advice to others but has no advice for own fellow profession because non has made public awareness for conduct of charging workable hours to a convict’s life saving. It like, if you can advise me to invest in a company but you don’t invest in any company? And you proud to call yourself a lawyer and proud to bill a client a fee for workable hour?

    There are unsolved shooting crimes in Gainesville that Hernandez and the Pouncey brothers have yet to answer to. This will happen in the near future, once this trial gets started.

  90. shlort says: May 31, 2014 9:43 PM

    I have seen dozens of people post on this site, defending Hernandez. Those folks should start budgeting money every month and send it to the lawyers.

  91. cri33 says: May 31, 2014 9:55 PM

    bassplucker..Hernandez has only been charged. The cases against him hasn’t even gone to trial yet. Therefore he has not be convicted of anything yet. If he is and the conviction withstands appeals, then he will be sent to prison.

  92. pizzasaurus says: May 31, 2014 10:37 PM

    “Hey Aaron, have you met Bubba yet?”

    I doubt there are too many Bubbas in prison bigger, meaner and dumber than Hernandez. This is a professional football player and a guy who throws away being a millionaire and NFL superstar because someone accidentally spilled a drink on him. There are no Bubbas waiting to step to him.

  93. righthereisay says: Jun 1, 2014 12:14 AM

    I wonder how many people he has murdered in his life. These are the only 3 he has been accused of. No way has been caught for all 3 of his murders.

  94. terryobitts says: Jun 1, 2014 12:48 AM

    Everyone here seems to be complaining about lawyers.

    But everyone likes their own lawyer.

    Criminal defense lawyers may be the most ethical of all lawyers. Because the state prosecutors are always ready to pounce on them if there is any indication of impropriety.

    You ppl are all idiots. You are condemning this guy before he is found guilty. The victims family dont deserve a penny. They only want money cuz its Aaron Hernandez. It it was Anyone else would have been another city killing. No one has asked the question why is he in jail. Innocent until proven guilty. Screw it right let the government continue to do what ever they want. And you ppl keep walking with your heads down.

    Well if these honorable, cough cough, defense lawyers so strongly believe in their clients innocence, do it pro bono the rest of the way out !!! Yeah ok, CASH makes his innocence alot better looking for those trolls. Hernandez shouldn’t give a damn about a lack of cash flow, he’s probable looking at a life in prison, which he deserves! NFl teams, if they had any brains, would inspect tattoos from these clowns, before their drafted!

    I wouldn’t say they’ve been spending a lot of time working on his cases. They have been billing a lot of hours, however.

    Nothing to worry about…he’ll have 3 hots and a cot for life. No money required.

    Any chance of the death sentence here?

    Mr. Hernandez likely does not require any further defense. The facts appear clear, and they suggest that he knowingly murdered several other human beings. There is not reasonable doubt. He requires a speedy trial and thereafter an execution.

    HA-HA glad to hear it. Let the loser rot in prison where he belongs

    The Constitution guarantees the right to a speedy trial. Hernandez has been imprisoned without bail for a year with no trial. His lawyers have taken his millions without doing anything that has helped him and now are quitting because he’s out of money. Let’s forget for a moment that he appears for years to have been a violent criminal (while those in authority looked the other way because he was a star football player). This is about the credibility of the US judicial system and law profession. In other words, it’s telling us nothing we didn’t know already.

    No doubt, Aaron Hernandez’s attorney’s were so right when they said the prosecutors speech at Aaron Hernandez’s arraignment was to taint any possible jury pool!!! reading these comments my gosh where is Aaron Hernandez’s presumption of innocence that is for all American’s under the Constitution of the United States? dang some of you even want the death penalty for him, all because of some prosecutor standing in a court room giving ONLY A ONE SIDED version of his speculating theory of what they say happened, coming from the testimony of a convicted dangerous felon who not to long ago shot up a nightclub in Connecticut for no apparent reason! as an American myself protected under the constitution of the United States, it is a scary thought to think any one of you could be on a jury! smh!!!
