Aaron Hernandez Discussion at UNH Law on Friday September 27
alumni weekend on the Aaron Hernandez case and the range of legal and business issues at stake. Those issues include (obviously) criminal law, but also issues in tort law, contract law and labor law. I've reported on this case for Sports Illustrated and SI.com, and I'm looking forward to talking about it.
Here's an outline of my discussion:
· Roles played by the alleged accomplices, Carlos Ortiz and Ernest Wallace;
· Possibility of federal charges;
· Hernandez’s possible defenses, including those connected to drug use; and
· Hernandez reportedly being target of a Suffolk County (Boston) grand jury investigating the 2012 deaths of Safrio Furtado and Daniel Abreu.
Although seating is reserved for alums of the school, a limited number of seats will be made available to others. If you're interested in attending, please contact Matthew Solo at matthew.solo[at]law.unh.edu.
