Aaron Hernandez and His Jordans Are Key Topics In Murder Trial



If we keep up with the NFL at all, we should all know who Aaron Hernandez is and what he is accused of doing. If you didn’t, here’s a quick break down. Former tight end of the New England Patriots, Aaron Hernandez is accused of being involved in a murder of his fiance’s sister’s boyfriend Odin Lloyd a former semi-professional football player. He’s been on trial for quite sometime now, but there is now a twist to his case which involves his collection of Air Jordans.

At the crime scene, there was an imprint of a pair of Jordans that they tried to link him with. No the model of the J’s were not specified as we are all pretty curious. However, his attorneys argued that the imprint doesn’t fit the size description of Hernandez’s size 13 feet. Also, the defense argues that Jordan models are a very common sneaker so it could belong to anyone and try to dispel the notion of Hernandez being involved with the killing.

This is an eerie twist which brings back memories of the O.J. Simpson trial. The classic “If the glove doesn’t fit, you must acquit” defense may transform into “If the Jays don’t fit, you must acquit”.
