Former New England Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez Denied Bail

Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images(BOSTON) -- Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was denied request for bail by a judge on Thursday, a day after he was charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of Odin Lloyd.

Hernandez’s lawyer, James Sultan, argued that the case is circumstantial and his client is not a risk to flee due to being a well-known individual. But Bristol County Assistant District Attorney Bill McCauley said the evidence against Hernandez is “overwhelming.”

The three-year NFL veteran cleared waivers Thursday, after he was cut by the Patriots Wednesday.
