Aaron Herndandez’s lawyer, James Sultan, believes that one of the jurors who took part in the conviction of the former NFL player was untruthful. Herndandez , a former New England Patriots player, was convicted for the murder of Odin Llyod back in 2013 in North Attleborough.
There hasn’t been any clear reason as to why Herndandez killed Odin, who at that time was actually dating a family member of the former New England Patriot player. For his crime, Herndandez was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. That said, Herndandez lawyer believes that one of the jurors who took part in the sentencing was not truthful. According to Sultan, who released a number of redacted court documents, there was an anonymous tipper who made him aware of all the whole issue.
According to the lawyer, the said tipser gave him a call on the 16th of April, that’s a few days after the jury had handed out their decision with regards to Herndandez’s case. Throughout the documents, the jurors name in question as well as the tipser has been eradicated. In addition to the identity of those two being eradicated, the documents that had been submitted by Herndandez’s lawyer do not give the details of what exactly the person who called said during the selection process of the jury before the trial started. According to Sultan, “the caller did not want to be in trouble in any way, but it is in her conscience that she knows vital information that is of importance.”
