According to Ellen Killoran with Crime Online, newly released phone records from the early years of Aaron Hernandez’s incarceration show that former New England Patriots player expected to return to the football field after he finished his sentence — and believed he would be found not guilty of murdering Odin Lloyd.
Ellen Killoran said according to the report, the jail released the previously withheld phone calls following a challenge the Boston Globe filed with the secretary of state’s office, successfully arguing that the recordings are public record.
In the earliest calls Hernandez made from the jail, where he was being held without bail following his arrest for Lloyd’s murder, Hernandez appeared optimistic that he would only be found guilty of a gun possession charge — a prediction that provide to be incorrect, was he was found guilty of Lloyd’s murder.
“I’m still going to be young when I get out of jail, so you know I’m going to try to play ball again,’’ Hernandez told Mike Pouncey, a former teammate at the University of Florida who also went on to the NFL.
