HE’S BACK … HMM, LOOKS LIKE A CERTAIN ATTORNEY WANTS MORE TV FACE TIME .
It would appear that Aaron Hernandez has hired new counsel for his double murder trial. Jose Baez, yes that Jose Baez, announced on Wednesday that he will be defending former New England Patriot tight end Aaron Hernandez in his upcoming double-murder trial. Aaron Hernandez has already been convicted in 2015 of a murder in Massachusetts, is charged with shooting to death two men, Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado, in 2012 outside a Boston nightclub.
A top Florida lawyer who stunned the nation when he won a murder acquittal for a mother accused of killing her toddler has taken on another high-profile, high-hurdle case.
Jose Baez announced Wednesday he was defending former New England Patriot standout Aaron Hernandez in his upcoming double-murder trial.
Baez, best known for his defense of Casey Anthony, said he realized Hernandez was the subject of much speculation in the court of public opinion — after being indicted in three homicides — but asked the public to keep an open mind “and let the facts unfold in a court of law.”
Of course we all know Jose Baez as the Florida defense attorney who gained fame during the Casey Anthony murder trial in 2011 where a just of fools inexplicably found the tot mom “not guilty as sin” of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. So what else would Hernandez have to lose than hiring Baez, he already got one murderer off Scott free. Hmm, better be careful Aaron, just how do you plan on paying for Jose’s services?
People have speculated why Baez would take such a case. Are you joking? Baez will get all the face time in the world as he has attached himself to a high profile case and there really is no expectation that he will win.
