Judge cites common law doctrine in vacating Aaron's Hernandez's murder conviction

Judge cites common law doctrine in vacating Aaron's Hernandez's murder conviction

As far as the New England Patriots and Aaron Hernandez's unpaid National Football League salary are concerned, even if the Massachusetts Supreme Court rules to vacate his murder conviction, there is no doubt that the Patriots will fight making any additional payments to Hernandez's estate. Bristol County District Attorney Thomas Quinn said prosecutors will appeal the decision according to CNN, but for now, Hernandez has been vacated of his crimes.

Hernandez killed himself in prison last month.

Former NFL New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez appears in court for a motion hearing in Attleborough, Massachusetts, Aug. 30, 2013. Thompson also said because Hernandez died in prison, it will be hard to definitively determine how he died.

"In the interests of justice, the court has no choice but to abate the proceedings.by vacating Hernandez's convictions and dismissing the charges against him", she said from the bench in Fall River, south of Boston.

With Hernandez now officially an innocent man despite being ruled guilty of killing Lloyd, the question shifts as to what becomes of lawsuits against Hernandez's estate by the family of Lloyd and whether his family would receive a pension for his time in the NFL.

The closest concept Tytla could think of to the abatement doctrine in CT is a posthumous pardon, or granting a pardon to someone after he dies, which Tytla said he has never seen in more than 30 years of practicing law.

Prior to his death, Hernandez was found not guilty in the 2012 shooting deaths of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado. He was serving a life sentence in Lloyd's murder.

Ward said she is holding on to her faith. "But I know one day I'm going to see my son and that is a victory that I have and I am going to take with me".

Hernandez was convicted of killing Lloyd in 2013. Hernandez's appeal was still pending when he hanged himself in his cell at Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Lancaster, Mass.

Hernandez's lead attorney in the double murder trial, Jose Baez, has pledged to independently investigate the death.

She said the Commonwealth of MA was incorrect that the U.S. Supreme Court had rejected the doctrine.

Hernandez's 2015 murder conviction of Odin Lloyd was now in appeals when the former Gator and New England Patriot tight end killed himself last month.

Summary: With former National Football League star Aaron Hernandez no longer able to appeal his conviction, MA law dictates that convictions can be nullified.

Aaron Hernandez, who committed suicide last month, has his murder conviction vacated Tuesday.

After hearing arguments from both sides, Judge Susan Garsh said she expects to issue a decision late Tuesday morning.

A lawyer for ex-NFL star Aaron Hernandez has asked a judge to erase his conviction in a 2013 murder.

Under Massachusetts state law, convicts who die before the completion of their appeal are often subsequently cleared of their original offence.

"This is an established common law doctrine", Hernandez appellate attorney John Thompson said.
