FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DATE: June 8, 2016
STATEMENT ON BEHALF OF AARON HERNANDEZ
I can now confirm that my firm has been retained to represent Mr. Aaron Hernandez in his upcoming trial. Mr. Hernandez strongly maintains his innocence, and I plan to establish that before a jury of his peers.
I have fully committed myself to ensuring a fair and just trial for Mr. Hernandez. To accomplish this, I have assembled the best legal team in the country to serve as co-counsel. The legal team will consist of me, as lead counsel, Harvard Law Professor and criminal law expert Ronald S. Sullivan Jr., renowned criminal defense attorney and trial expert Alex Spiro, and forensic science expert Linda Kenny Baden.
We understand that numerous reports of our client’s alleged activity have been published, but we ask the public to afford Mr. Hernandez the presumption of innocence and let the facts unfold in a court of law.
Jose Baez, Esq.
