News broke yesterday that the two lawyers representing former Patriot tight end Aaron Hernandez have filed a request to obtain the medical records from his time with the team. Assumedly the lawyers hope that the records will help prove Hernandez innocent in the multitude of charges levied against him. How they plan to prove innocence with medical records is beyond us though.
One interesting note from the official request is the lack of Hernandez’ approval for “HIV/STD records” to be released. The more rational side of me would like to give Hernandez the benefit of the doubt and not jump to any conclusions… Perhaps the HIV/STD records would have nothing to do with his hopes of innocence. But isn’t it more fun to speculate?
