  • Second trial, appeal mean much for Hernandez

    Boston Globe - 04/17/2015

    Jurors were not persuaded, and Hernandez will now spend the rest of his life in prison, barring a successful appeal before the state Supreme Judicial Court. The appeal process could take years, experts said.

    Hernandez’s appellate team will scour the trial transcript before filing their brief with the SJC, said Daniel S. Medwed, a Northeastern University law professor who handled appeals as a public defender in New York. Oral arguments will be heard after additional court filings.

    “This is going to be a thousand page-plus trial transcript” since more than 130 witness testified at Hernandez’s trial in Bristol County, Medwed said.
