Aaron Hernandez is currently awaiting trial for a double murder that took place in 2012, and prosecutors believe phone calls Hernandez made to his friend Dolphins offensive lineman Mike Pouncey could put the Former Pats star tight end behind bars for a very long time.
According to court documents obtained by TMZ, prosecutors want a judge to admit transcripts of phone calls Hernandez made to Mike Pouncey from prison as evidence in the murder trial.
The first phone call with Pouncey went down on April 3, 2015:
“During this call, the defendant talks about how he has changed and now he would not want to even go in a club if there were ‘black people there’ because if they (referring to he and the Pounceys) go in ‘imagine if I go in the club with y’all n—as and n—as try you, you already know what time it is, feel me?’”
“This statement is relevant as an example of the defendant’s use of the word ‘try,’ referring to being disrespected. Bradley will testify (and likely be subject to vigorous cross-examination) that the defendant repeatedly told him that he felt that people — and, ultimately the homicide victims in this case — were ‘trying’ him.”
The second Pouncey phone call took place on April 28, 2015:
“During this call, [Hernandez] stated words to the effect of, ‘I’m going to get another tattoo that looks like a stop sign that will say, ‘Beware, no hesitation.’ [Hernandez] said, ‘You feel me? Like try me and there’s no hesitation.’”
“Again, as set forth above, this statement is relevant to the defendant’s use of the word ‘try’ and ongoing perception that others were ‘trying him’ — and suggest how the defendant responds when tried.”
In their police report, investigators in the case said that Hernandez felt the victims in the 2012 double homicide, were “trying” him the night they were shot and killed.
