Questions remain on Hernandez wealth after conviction erasedOctober 10, 2017 – Media Mention
BOSTON (AP) — Questions abound after a judge erased ex-NFL star Aaron Hernandez’s murder conviction in a 2013 killing.
Chief among them: What, if any, wealth did the former New England Patriots tight end leave behind when he hanged himself in prison on April 19? And could the team be back on the hook for nearly $6 million it withheld from Hernandez after he was charged in the killing and the team released him?
There are no clear answers.
Sports and entertainment attorney Ricardo Cestero, who’s based in Los Angeles, said he’s doubtful the Patriots would be required to pay Hernandez’s estate anything as a result of the abatement of his conviction.
