Prosecutors In Aaron Hernandez Case Are Seeking Life Sentence With No Parole
Just one day after being arrested and convicted for the murder of Odin Lloyd, former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez finds himself in court facing even more charges.
Now that more details have surfaced of what happened the fateful night before the victim's body was recovered, it appears the prosecutors are throwing everything in the book at Hernandez to ensure that he gets put away for a long time.
According to TMZ, they are seeking a life sentence for the 23-year-old without the possibility of parole. While we already knew that, if found guilty of all six charges, he would likely be facing life, the prospect of having no parole is devastating for the defendant.

And with the strong case that they have already built against Hernandez, things are looking darker than ever. It has also been revealed that the judge has denied him bail for the second time, meaning that he will be behind bars while he awaits trial.

Things couldn't possibly get worse for this guy. But wait... they can. Puma just became his first endorser to drop him from their brand. Say goodbye to your life, Aaron.
