Report: Aaron Hernandez to be charged with 7 crimes


It looks like the Aaron Hernandez murder case will come to a head tomorrow.

Per Albert Breer of NFL Network, the former New England Patriots tight-end will be charged with seven crimes, two of the counts being first degree murder.

It’s been nearly a calendar years since Aaron Hernandez was arrested right before the start of the 2013 NFL season.

Arrested on account of murdering his then-associate Odin Lloyd, evidence such as home cameras, bullets, text messages, the murder weapon, etc. connected the NFL player to the crime, ultimately buried any chance of Hernandez proving his innocence. Following the signature by a court judge that issued the police a warrant that allowed the arrest of Aaron Hernandez on June 26, 2013, the New England Patriots decided to cut the emerging star, signaling off one of the craziest stories in sports we’ve heard in a long time.

Earlier this month, Hernandez was indicted for a double murder that occurred in July of 2012. The double-murder, according to the records, occurred six weeks prior to the New England Patriots signed the Florida football star to a 5-year, $40 million contract extension with a $12.5 million signing bonus, an extension that “humbled” the University of Florida star, having adopted to the fabled “Patriot Way”

“You can’t come here and act reckless and do your own stuff. I might have acted the way I wanted to act, but you get changed by Bill Belichick’s way. You get changed by the Patriots’ way. Now that I’m a Patriot, I have to start living like one, and making the right decisions for them.”

Based on all of the evidence on the murder, it’s not likely that Aaron Hernandez beats this case. It’s never a good thing to see a role model commit this type of act, but it’s the perfect example to all that no one, not even a multimillionaire on one of the most winningest teams in NFL history, is exempt from the law.
