Time for an Aaron Hernandez update, y'all!!
The former New England Patriot was back in court in Fall River, Massachusetts today for a pre-trial hearing where his attorneys requested a gag order be put in place.
However, the most interesting part of the afternoon came when Aaron took the witness stand for the very first time in the high-profile court case!
After being sworn in, the judge hit him with a slew of yes or no questions, including whether or not he was under the influence or alcohol or drugs and if he had a history of mental illness.
Aaron confirmed that he is, in fact, NOT insane in the membrane and that he fully understands the situation that he's in.
The judge even made sure to remind him that if he IS found guilty of Odin Lloyd, that he would face life in prison with no parole.
Looks like Aaron will be sticking with his not guilty plea!
