This morning Aaron Hernandez was convicted of first-degree murder for the shooting death of Odin Lloyd and sentenced to life in prison.
After the verdict was read, the former New England Patriots tight end appeared to tell the jury they made the wrong decision.
Pretty chilling stuff.
It’s tough to imagine how Hernandez can be so steadfast in his belief he’s being wrongly convicted. This murder case was considered to be tougher to prove than his other double-homicide rap. So even if he somehow escaped prosecution today, he’d still be facing the looming supposed slam-dunk case.
He’s either convinced himself he’s the unluckiest person in the world or is so oblivious to his own actions that he really thought he’d skate.
Whatever the case, it’s a damning last image of an athlete who threw so much away.
