It sounds like Aaron Hernandez's legal issues are spreading out to his family.
The former New England Patriot's cousin Tanya Singleton was arrested and has been in custody since August 1st after she refused to testify in front of a Grand Jury in Aaron's case.
She was indicted on a criminal contempt charge for her refusal to testify and is expected to be arraigned later today in court in Fall River.
Some feel that Tanya is trying to protect Aaron, as she has a connection to Ernest Wallace, one of the men who was riding with him the night of the murder. Sources say she purchased him a bus ticket soon after Odin Lloyd was killed.
Tanya could be withholding some important information, and if she does eventually testify, there's a possibility it can lead to a huge breakthrough.
Aaron still needs to appear in court in the future for his arraignment, but a date still hasn't been set.
