Friend of Aaron Hernandez acquitted of murder, convicted of being an accessory

AP

Former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is serving life in prison for the murder of Odin Lloyd, but the legal case surrounding Lloyd’s death is not over, and today another verdict was reached.

In that verdict, a friend of Hernandez, Ernest Wallace, was convicted of being an accessory after the fact. But Wallace was acquitted of murder in the case.

Prosecutors have said that Hernandez is the one who pulled the trigger in the shooting death of Lloyd, but that he could not have carried out the killing without the help of Wallace. At trial, Wallace’s lawyer pointed the finger at Hernandez, saying Wallace had no idea that Hernandez was going to kill Lloyd.

Wallace was sentenced to four and a half to seven years in prison.

In addition to the murder of Lloyd, Hernandez is accused of murdering two other people outside a Boston nightclub in 2012. He is awaiting trial in that murder case.

  1. How crazy would that be if we find out Hernandez actually murdered two people before the Odin Lloyd murder ever happened? Not ordered hits but actually pulled the trigger on 3 different murders while continuing to practice and play games with the Patriots like nothing ever happened. Insanity.

  2. it’s time to stop with the Hernandez stories…. he’s in jail for life without parole and none of his circle have anything to do with the current NFL

    it’s time to flush this guy

  3. He probably figured if Ray Lewis & OJ can do it & get away with it why not him too??!!

    How could anyone think that the Patriots organization is anything but class and integrity? Just name one thing!
    ———————

    No clue. They got rid of Hernandez soon after he got busted.

    Meanwhile, the Ravens tried to cover for Ray Rice and they built a statue of Ray Lewis. How is that for class and integrity?

    Besides, what does the bozo this article about have to do with the Patriots?

  5. Well let’s see as soon as it was announced that Hernandez was even a suspect in this stuff…..the Patriots cut him. McCoy and his buddies beat up some cops…..the Bills do nothing. Ray Lewis murders a guy…..the team puts up a statue.

    You tell me which organization conducts themselves with integrity and which do not.

    Not exactly. The Pats cut him as he was being arrested.
    Big difference between that and your statement.

    Everyone with an IQ over 80 already knew for weeks that the guy either did it or was seriously involved.

    ============================
    I agree man, If true, its inching close to serial killer status, imho. It’s crazy because the evidence is really pointing to it being true on these other two killings.

    Take another draft pick just for fun, the picks bust anyways.
    ————————

    Yeah, they sure can’t draft or build a roster worth a damn. It goes along way towards explaining that one losing season in the last 20 years

  10. I get that people hate the pats because the pats are better than your team. All of you rooted for the pats to beat the Rams in SB 36 because the greatest show on turf was hated for being so good as well. Who knew that this was what was still to come after that first super bowl? With that being said, using a murder to try to get in a dig at a football team that you dislike is beyond sad and pathetic.

    As far as when they actually cut Hernandez, yes they made that move as he was being arrested. They had to. Imagine how stupid it would look if they had released him and then the cops determined he wasn’t involved. They had to presume innocence, and they made it clear, if he is charged with anything in relation to a murder, they would release him. And they did that. What more could they have done for you to be satisfied? They played there cards they only way they could have played them.

  11. He cheated people out of their lives, lied about it, cheating everyone out of the truth, then he cheated the hangman and avoided being executed.

    Sometimes the guilty get away without the consequences of their crimes.

    Anyone with an IQ of 10 knows if you hide a white suit worn the night you’re involved in a murder there’s a darned good chance you might have been heavily involved. His point about the Bills handling of that situation is spot on. Where’s your outrage in regards to those 2 examples?

  15. The way I see it is…..The Patriots are super bowl bound. Most of you AND Hernandez AREN’T invited. Have a nice season.

    Because when you are not afraid of the Pats, you can think freely and reach normal adult conclusions

  17. Keep up with the moronic idea that a young black man would just walk on a murder charge in the South.
    If Ray Lewis was guilty the state of Georgia would have been more than happy to lock up a black man.

    I know you are trying to troll anti patriots noise but the fact is the team and fans are all pretty sure this is exactly what happened and are sickened by it. Reason for thinking it’s the case was because Odin Lloyd was shot for talking too much about H’s previous murders. That’s not bad reasoning. And not just the fans and team you mentioned, also all the sports writers and broadcasters who gushed about how great he was. And on and on. Not even the God of integrity Roger Goodell had even a vlue this was happening in his league. (I’m guessing he would have handed down say, 2 games?)

    Anyone calling it the Patriot way is an ignorant fool. It’s no ones way but Hernandez’s. Everyone else in New England, both teams and fans is disgusted and horrified at what is known he did and what more he might have (probably) did.

    Before commenting on IQs be sure you are looking like you have one.

    The Cops were very careful to only refer to Hernandez as a person they wanted to question at first. They said nothing outward to anyone about what they had nor who/what they were zeroing in on. That’s just smart police procedure so no surprises there. They did not make any declarations of Hernandez being a suspect until they were ready to move on him. Then all that plus the team cut happened same day. And that was about a week after the murder took place. So whatever you claim you knew for weeks is a good question huh?. (Or are you saying you knew of the pending murder weeks in advance in which case why didn’t you tell someone?)

    ——————————————————–
    Huh? The guilty get away? I’m not sure getting life in prison counts as getting away without consequences.

    And Hernadez was not a cheater. He was a killer. They aren’t the same thing you know?

    You stink at trolling.

  22. ” Ray Lewis murders a guy…..the team puts up a statue.

    You tell me which organization conducts themselves with integrity and which do not.”

    —————————————————————Different times = different results

  23. It really makes you wonder how many we don’t know about. There’s no telling how many he’s gotten away with! New England did nothing wrong here. They cut him when he was arrested. Simple as that.

  24. It’s not that they had a murderer on their team for years, it’s just that it fits in with the culture of corruption. It stands to reason that a low character franchise would have murderers and cheaters and such on their team.

    The whole era is a black mark on the leagues history.

  25. Oh, those Patriot scamps. Murder. Habitual cheating. Who knows what they’ll be up to next.

  26. How do you blame the Patriots? Only motivation has to be jealously .
    All clubs have drafted or signed some bums along the way.
    As to whether Hernandez killed the two innocent bar attendees,
    from what I have read the DA has better evidence. So do bet on
    Hernandez. He is one bad guy, better described as a sociopath.
    By the way, born and raised Steeler fan but I recognize how Belichick
    is a hard working coach. He has the ability and mindset like no other.
    Parcells, and Cowher will tell you …they just couldn’t sustain the grind
    like Belichick has. It comes with a price , like a divorce and a tough family life but don’t deny the obvious, he is the best coach of all time.

    I’ve been a Ravens fan since they came to town. When the Ray Lewis incident happened, Ray was making a name for himself on the field but he wasn’t a superstar yet. I was shocked at how the Ravens stuck up for him really. There is one side of the fence that thinks he is guilty and there is another side of the story that thinks the investigators wanted to frame a up and coming star. I just know that as a fan of the Ravens, I liked Ray Lewis on the field, but after that – I can’t stand him.
    As for Ray Rice, I think the Ravens wanted to protect a guy who, off the field, was a true good guy. He did a lot in the community. When that video leaked, they had no choice but to release him. It would have been a Ray Lewis 2.0 PR nightmare.
    The Patriots and all the other NFL teams try to do the same thing, protect their best players – until they have no choice otherwise.

    Judging from past history, that would be winning.

    Of course the Patriots promptly got rid of the killer on their team, whereas the Ravens worshiped theirs. They even erected a shrine to him.

    Ray Lewis may or may not have been involved in the deaths that took place back in 2000.

    But your team was harboring a frigging gangster, bro! I guarantee you Aaron didn’t walk around the facilities talking like a choir boy and never mentioning who he runs with. The Patriots did what they had to do, when they had no other choice, bro. He would have stayed a Patriot otherwise.

    They would at the least have two. They were 11-5 that season that Matt Cassel was the quarterback.

  36. Patriots are the only team that cuts players that are violent criminals Ravens kept Lewis, tried to keep rice. Cowboys bring in hardy and call him a team leader. That’s why they remain on top. It’s the patriot way or the highway.
