UPDATE (April 15 @ 11:40AM): Hernandez has been sentenced to life without parole.
The whirlwind trial of former NFL player Aaron Hernandez, which included an Air Jordan expert, has finally come to a conclusion. The jury found Hernandez guilty of the murder of Odin Lloyd, who was found dead in an industrial park in June 2013.
Jurors in the trial of former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez have found him guilty of first degree murder, which carries a penalty of life imprisonment without the possibility of parole.
Hernandez was also found guilty of unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition.
As the verdict was read, the former standout tight end appeared upset but calm — pursing his lips and taking a deep breath, as his lawyer put his arm around him. He looked over to see his mother and fiancee weeping.
The guilty votes were unanimous. Life comes at you fast.
