Since they didn’t arrest him for obstruction of justice I hardly believe they will go after that since they believe they have him for homicide. The funny part is, how in the world can he get convicted with out having the murder weapon? Johnnie Cochran says,” if the glove don’t fit you must acquit”, well if you don’t have a murder weapon, and a witness who was “asleep” and heard a gunshot and went back to sleep the odds are you don’t have any kind of case.
Unreliable witness, no murder weapon, you have a piece of gum, cell phone data to triangulate you were in the area (but the gum confirms that so who cares), now you have to prove that Hernandez actually murdered someone. Oh, he was “brandishing” a weapon in his own home. How do you brandish a weapon in your own home? The definition of brandish is,”Wave or flourish (something, esp. a weapon) as a threat or in anger or excitement” I don’t think he was waving it, or being excited jumping up and down, “oh boy i just shot someone!” and I highly doubt he was threatening anyone with it because the person that he supposedly wanted dead was dead, so you should be chilling and happy.
The defense gets another layup and should be an easy win for Hernandez. If Hernandez some how loses, then we’ll just have to throw this case in the “if I want you to be guilty, i’ll make you guilty in my courtroom” pile.
Also, I fully expect that Ortiz character to wind up dead in a year or less.
