Hernandez jury to begin deliberations on Friday

AP

Former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, already serving a life sentence for one murder, could find out soon whether he’s legally guilty of two others.

Via the Associated Press, the jury in the double-murder trial against Hernandez will commence deliberations on Friday.

The prosuection contends that Hernandez shot into a car, killing Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado because of a spilled drink in a nightclub. The defense claims that Alexander Bradley, Hernandez’s former friend and now the key witness for the prosecution, fired the shots over a drug deal gone bad.

With a very high standard of proof applicable in criminal cases, it’s possible that the jury concludes that sufficient reasonable doubt exists to prevent a conviction. Looming over the process is Hernandez’s existing murder conviction and sentence. Some of the jurors know about it, but they were kept on the panel because they said they could disregard the knowledge of the other conviction.

Good luck with that. Knowing that Hernandez has killed someone else shows that he’s capable of something so dastardly, and itĀ could lessen the gravity of sending a guy to jail for the rest of his life, since that’s where he already is.

    On a positive note, the body count hasn’t increased in the last year or two.

    Defense attorney here. Unbelievable that they sat jurors that knew about the other conviction.

    I’m sure the defense also contends Alexander Bradley shot himself in the face. They also probably try to blame the other murder on Bradley too.

    Hopefully he takes O.J Simpson’s advice to not steal cookies. Whether it be from another inmate or the kitchen, that’ll buy you an easy two days in the hole.

    Best be free and buy a rack of Chips Ahoy out here and avoid all that jazz.
