Aaron Hernandez‘s attorney has finally spoken out about his client’s legal troubles.
Michael Fee of Ropes and Gray LLP, released the following statement on Monday night, disputing some media claims about Hernandez’s legal troubles and trying to clarify a few things.
“Over the past week, our client, Aaron Hernandez, has been the subject of a relentless flood of rumors, misinformation, and false reports in the media. These include the repeated publication of a supposedly confirmed report that an arrest warrant had been issued for Aaron, a report that was exposed as untrue. None of these false reports come from official sources and we appreciate the professionalism and restraint shown by the Bristol County District Attorney’s Office to date with regard to its public statements while its investigation is underway. Out of respect for that ongoing investigation, we will continue to refrain from commenting on its substance.”
Hernandez’s connection to the murder investigation of known associate Odin Lloyd has been widely publicized over the past week. Police have searched the tight end’s home on multiple occasions and he still has not been ruled out as a suspect.
