Defense lawyer visits Aaron Hernandez’s house

Court records impounded

NORTH ATTLEBOROUGH — Prominent Boston criminal defense lawyer James L. Sultan visited the home of New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez Tuesday afternoon amid an ongoing homicide investigation that has embroiled the football player for more than a week.

Sultan is a veteran of several high-profile cases, including that of a former Citibank executive twice convicted in a fatal stabbing Nantucket in 2004. Sultan secured the second trial for the man on appeal. Sultan entered Hernandez’s home with another man shortly after 3 p.m. Tuesday.
