Will The New England Patriots Have To Pay Out The Rest Of Aaron Hernandez's Contract Now That He's Technically Innocent? Get The Latest!

Filed under: ZportzLegal MattersFootballNFL

no title

Aaron Hernandez's prison suicide has unraveled a mess of legal confusion.

As we reported, a Massachusetts judge granted the request to erase the former NFL star's murder conviction that was still pending appeal, which means he technically died an innocent man.

Officials say the court had "no choice" but to honor the abatement doctrine on Tuesday — you know, innocent until proven guilty (or dead, apparently) — in the former athlete's appeal for the 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd.

This new development blitzed the New England Patriots with a potential problem, as the team might now be on the hook to pay out the remainder of Aaron's $6 million salary to his estate.

The former athlete's attorney, Jose Baez, told TMZ his legal team is in talks with Hernandez's former agents to see how the abatement will affect his contract.

Baez says Hernandez's family is still grieving over his tragic suicide and are not rushing to take any specific action.

If the team were ordered to pay out the remaining sum, it would go to his beneficiary and fiancée Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez, who Aaron declared was "rich" in his suicide note to her.

Prosecutors have suggested that the ex-pro planned his suicide

Aaron Hernandez's Lawyer Puts Massachusetts Authorities On Blast For The Way They Handled The Athlete's Suicide

aaron hernandez lawyer calls out authorities

Aaron Hernandez's lawyer is calling people out.

On Thursday, the Massachusetts State Police issued an investigative report in order to set the record straight about what happened the day the scandalized NFL star committed suicide. Ever since it was revealed that the former New England Patriots tight end killed himself in prison on April 19, there has been a lot of conflicting reports about his passing.

While the report disproved some of the rumors, it did confirm that Aaron had written Bible verse John 3:16 in ink on his forehead and in blood in his prison cell. Intense stuff.

Not to mention, a toxicology report proved the American athlete did NOT have drugs in his system at the time of his death. This update contradicts a previous report which claims Hernandez had used synthetic marijuana hours before killing himself.

And while this report certainly clarifies a few things, Aaron's lawyer Jose Baez is not satisfied with the way the authorities handled the investigation. In a new statement, the attorney noted:

Aaron Hernandez's Lawyer Calls BS On Those Gay Lover Rumors

Aaron Hernandez

Aaron Hernandez's lawyer is speaking out on reports claiming the late athlete left a suicide letter for a gay prison lover.

As we've told you, the convicted NFL star supposedly left behind three notes before hanging himself from his prison cell last week — one of which was allegedly addressed to another prisoner he'd been intimate with. The other two were said to be written to his fiancée, Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez, and the couple's four-year-old daughter Avielle.

Speaking to TMZ on Monday, Jose Baez denied such rumors:

"Rumors of letters to a gay lover, in or out of prison, are false. These are malicious leaks used to tarnish somebody who is dead."

And as far as if he believes Aaron's death was suicidal or murder, he added:

Aaron Hernandez's lawyer isn't the only one who questions whether the NFL star really committed suicide.

Shayanna Jenkins, Aaron's fiancée and mother to his 4-year-old daughter, is backing attorney Jose Baez and looking for any proof this was really murder.

In fact, she's even suing the Massachusetts Department of Corrections to preserve any prison records, surveillance video, or physical evidence that could cast doubt on the ruling of suicide.

Does she think the suicide note written to her was faked? Hmm…

According to TMZ Sports, the matter is apparently being heard by a judge right away.

Do YOU think there's anything suspect about Hernandez's suicide?

Aaron Hernandez

UPDATE 10:31 A.M. EST: Aaron Hernandez's attorney Jose Baez claims the former pro athlete showed no signs of being suicidal!

Speaking to TMZ, he explained the decision behind a full investigation into the 27-year-old's death:

"We are shocked and surprised at the news of Aaron's death. There were no conversations or correspondence from Aaron to his family or legal team that would have indicated this scenario was a possibility. Aaron was looking forward to an opportunity for a second chance to prove his innocence. Those who love and care about him are heartbroken and determined to find the truth surrounding his untimely death. We request that authorities conduct a transparent and thorough investigation. The bias law firm will participate in its own examination into the tragic events and will update the media and public on its finding when it becomes available."


Maybe there's more to the story.

As we reported, ex-NFL star Aaron Hernandez was found dead early Wednesday morning after an apparent suicide by hanging in his prison cell.

The Case Against Nick Gordon Just Got A LOT Ickier — You'll Never Believe Who's Representing Him Now!

no title

We can't.

Just a week after a 40 million dollar suit was filed against Nick Gordon for alleged emotional and physical abuse against Bobbi Kristina, it was revealed that the Georgia native has hired Jose Baez as his new lawyer.

Seriously, we needed smelling salts after hearing this news!

[ Related: Nick Spotted In Florida While Bobbi Kristina Is In Hospice Care ]

For all of you who were MIA in 2011, Baez successfully defended CASEY ANTHONY against charges that she murdered her 3-year-old daughter, Caylee Anthony.

Jose, who was a lawyer with low credibility and a ton of complaints against him prior to the case, skyrocketed to fame after winning the NOT GUILTY verdict.

Considering most of the public was convinced Casey would be convicted, the win secured his status as the one of the most sought out defense attorneys in America.

So, back to Nick.

If Bobbi sadly passes away, the Georgia native will most likely face murder charges as the district attorney's office is now investigating the January 31 drowning incident with greater interest. It makes sense that NG would want to hire Baez in anticipation of the charges.

Sheesh, there's a lot of ICK to go around right now! We can't say we're surprised that Nick and Jose teamed up.

So, what do YOU think of Gordon's choice for a lawyer?
