Today Aaron Hernandez goes on trial; I would be surprised if convicted of Murder

Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez goes on trial Friday for the June 2013 murder of a semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd. His case exposed the rich young star’s drift into violence and stoked a widening debate about off-the-field behavior of NFL athletes.

Hernandez, 25, is charged with killing Odin Lloyd, a friend whose body was found in an industrial park in North Attleboro, Massachusetts, shot several times and discarded near a mound of construction waste.

The case against Hernandez is largely circumstantial, and if he’s convicted he faces life without parole.

I personally feel the State will not be able to convict Hernandez of the murder because you have to have proof that Hernandez was in fact the trigger man. I doubt the men with Hernandez flip on him and if they all ride it out they could be charged with damaging evidence and that’s it.
