No gag order in Hernandez double murder case

A judge today refused to issue a gag order in the prosecution of Aaron Hernandez for allegedly murdering two people in Boston in 2012, ruling that he saw no sign that Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley’s office had violated ethical rules for prosecutors by leaking information.

Lawyers for Hernandez, a former New England Patriots star, had argued in court papers filed with Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Locke that the murder charges against their client – and a separate murder charge pending in Bristol County – have generated media coverage that is “virtually unprecedented in the history of the Commonwealth.”
