In 2013, former Patriots Tight-End Aaron Hernandez was sentenced to life over being found guilty in a double-murder. According to ESPN, Aaron Hernandez has now been acquitted from charges of the murder of Daniel De Abreu and Safiro Fertado.
In this case, Hernandez is only facing convictions of unlawful possession of a firearm. He received five years, on top of his life sentence in this case.
A close friend of Aaron Hernandez, Alexander Bradley stated that Hernandez opened fire on Daniel De Abreu and Safiro Fertado over a spilled drink in the club. Bradley said that the former TE fired at the men’s car at a stoplight after the drink was spilled on Aaron Hernandez.
Tables have turned towards Bradley, who Hernandez and his team say was the shooter of Abreu and Fertado. According to Hernandez’s defense, Bradley shot the two over a drug deal.
Hernandez, though, is still serving a life sentance for the murder of Semi-Pro football player, Odin Lloyd. Lloyd was the sister of Aaron Hernandez’s fiancée.
Prosecutors could not speak on the trial on the murder of Lloyd.
