More and more information keeps leaking out about Aaron Hernandez’s past after his arrest. Now it looks like more information pertaining to his ongoing legal dilemma will be released to the public.
A judge has granted a motion by news organizations to lift an impoundment of the material, saying he would do so by 2 p.m. Tuesday if there is no challenge by prosecutors and defense attorneys who had argued to keep it sealed.
Bristol County District Attorney Samuel Sutter said that they won’t appeal the judge’s ruling. There is no word if defense attorney’s planned to.
You would assume that they would, leaking evidence only benefits the prosecutors and clearly wouldn’t help the defense. The defense is already fighting the public’s perception of Hernandez that he is guilty. Incriminating evidence from search warrants will only further that assumption.
Per CNN, the order encompasses the search warrants, the affidavits submitted to support the issuance of the warrants, and documents reflecting the evidence that was recovered.
What we would learn from the records is what police where looking for, why and if they found it.
