Aaron Hernandez faces double murder trial on May 28

If the current schedule holds, former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez will stand trial on three murder charges in fewer than eight months.

Earlier this week, a judge in Boston picked May 28 as the date on which Hernandez will face a jury for the July 2012 shooting deaths of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado.

Hernandez currently is scheduled to be tried on October 6 for allegedly killing Odin Lloyd in June 2013.

Judge Jeffrey Locke made it clear on Tuesday that the double murder case won’t take a back seat to the Lloyd trial.

“Don’t consider this case suspended until October,” Locke said, via the New York Daily News.

It also would be unwise to consider that both trials will occur as scheduled.  Delays are the norm not the exception when it comes to criminal trials, regardless of the profile.

Judge Locker also was asked to impose a gag order in the de Abreu and Furtado cases.  A ban on leaks to the press previously was issued in connection with the Lloyd prosecution.

    So much for the right to a speedy trial (to clear your name) and being held without bail.

    OJ Simpson never was compensated for all his pretrial time.

    Then again if you probably are going to do Rae Carruth type time, you get credit for time served and are still considered innocent before trial.

    May 28, 2015 is when the lawyers estimate he’ll run out of money.

    I’m starting to think that he well may serve his life sentence before this trial ends. It’s taking forever. Can we get the tax dollars that have accrued to date to feed and shelter this, a hem, guy?

    Fewer than 8 months? June to May is 11 months.

    If he’s acquitted in October, theres no reason for him to sit there until May.

    He could be in camp for the 2015 season

    A liar and a cheat. Direct reflection of his head coach. Prove me wrong please citing examples of his coaching and personal life.

    You can’t see the tattoos on Aaron’s knuckles. “Murder 1″ and “Murder 2″.

    He’ll walk!

    I don’t get who’s supporting this boob? OJ and LA’s supporters had the crooked Police to blame and I get that, but Hernandez, geesh….
