A potential juror thought Aaron Hernandez’s trial was somehow tied to Deflategate
Jury selection continued Friday in Aaron Hernandez’s second murder trial and one prospective juror was excused after she mixed up Deflategate and the 2012 double murder Hernandez is accused of committing.
“No, Deflategate has nothing to do with this,” the judge replied as the courtroom erupted in laughter. The blunder made even Hernandez chuckle, the Herald’s Bob McGovern reported.
It isn’t entirely outrageous for the woman to link Hernandez and Deflategate. His first murder trial began less than two weeks after that infamous game against the Colts.
