Hernandez attorney James Sultan objected to the delay, saying his client has already been jailed for four weeks. Sultan also stood against further publication of information regarding the trial, “As important it is for the media to get their hands on all the information… Hernandez’s right for a constitutional trial is paramount…It’s insulting to our system of justice…anything can be done to protect this mans right to a a fair trial.”

Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to the grizzly murder of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, whose body was found in an industrial park near Hernandez’s home. Meanwhile, a different grand jury could indict Hernandez for a separate double murder that occurred in July 2012, only weeks before Hernandez signed a contract extension with the Patriots.

When the camera panned across the courtroom, images of Odin Lloyd‘s crestfallen family plastered themselves on screen.
