BOSTON - Former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez asked a judge Friday to bar prosecutors from telling a jury at his upcoming murder trial about evidence of his other alleged crimes, including the fatal shootings of two Boston men in 2012. Cornelius Lucas Jersey .In a motion filed Friday, Hernandezs lawyers argued that any evidence of so-called bad acts are not relevant to the murder charge against him in the 2013 killing of semi-professional football player Odin Lloyd. Hernandezs trial in that case is scheduled to begin next month in Fall River Superior Court.Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to murder charges in all three killings.Hernandezs lawyers said evidence about the double slaying in Boston in 2012 and other alleged crimes would risk undue prejudice against Hernandez in the Lloyd trial.Prosecutors filed a notice in October listing 30 subjects of potential other prior bad act evidence, including other shootings, gun trafficking, firearms possession, drug use and a drunken driving arrest, Hernandezs lawyers said in their filing.If permitted to use all, or even much, of this evidence, the commonwealth will have succeeded in transforming a murder trial into a wide-ranging, collateral attack on the defendants personal history, character, lifestyle and propensities, Hernandezs lawyers wrote.They argue that if evidence of the double slaying is presented at the Lloyd trial, it would grossly undermine Hernandezs right to a fair trial.It will be difficult enough for Hernandez to get a fair trial in this case without having to defend against two completely separate murder allegations (different time, different place, different weapon, different evidence) before the same jury simultaneously! his lawyers wrote.Hernandezs lawyers also want the judge to bar evidence about an incident outside a Providence nightclub in May 2013. Hernandezs lawyers said Hernandez was visiting the club with friends when they were confronted, threatened and/or attacked by a larger, belligerent group.As Hernandez and his friends went to their car, someone threw a handgun under a parked car. Hernandezs lawyers say the handgun was not the murder weapon in the Lloyd case and Hernandez was not the person who threw it.There is absolutely no factual connection between this incident and Odin Lloyd and his shooting death, his lawyers wrote.Hernandezs defence team said they also object to prosecutors introducing any evidence of the shooting of Hernandezs friend, Alexander Bradley, in Florida in February 2013.Bradley told police in Florida that he did not know who shot him in the face. Hernandez has not been charged, but Bradley later filed a federal lawsuit against Hernandez seeking monetary damages.Undoubtedly, the commonwealth would like to suggest to the jury that Hernandez has a propensity for shooting his friends for one reason or another. Under this theory, if the jury finds that it was Hernandez who shot Bradley, the jury could then jump to the conclusion that it was Hernandez who shot Lloyd as well, Hernandezs lawyers wrote.This is precisely the kind of outlandish, flawed reasoning which our criminal justice system prohibits.A spokesman for Bristol County prosecutors declined to comment.Prosecutors suggested earlier that the encounters in Boston, Providence and Florida show a common pattern of violence by Hernandez following disputes at nightclubs.Lloyd had been at a Boston nightclub with Hernandez and others days before his body was found about a mile from Hernandezs North Attleborough home.

The football club recently announced an increase in season ticket prices in five of the seven categories at Investors Group Field for 2014. While most increases are in the two to three per cent range, the clubs most affordable season tickets will jump from $199 to $250 — a 26 per cent leap.CLEVELAND -- Wide receiver Andrew Hawkins joined the Browns on Tuesday after the Cincinnati Bengals declined to match an offer sheet for him. The Bengals announced their decision eight hours before a five-day deadline to equal Clevelands offer to Hawkins was to expire. The Browns signed Hawkins, a restricted free agent, to a four-year, $13.6 million offer sheet last Thursday. The team has not yet announced the signing. Hawkins, 5-foot-7 and 180 pounds, fills a major need at slot receiver. The Browns recently released troubled wide receiver Davone Bess and were in the market for an inside playmaker. Hawkins fits that bill and should help Clevelands offence with his elusiveness and big-play potential. Hawkins had just 12 catches for 199 yards last season, when he was sidelined by a high-ankle sprain. Darius Slay Jersey. In 2012, he had 51 catches for 533 yards and four touchdowns. "I dont want to let Andrew go without making note that he has been a very hard working and contributing player," Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said in a statement released by the team. "He has set a great example of being a great teammate. But were fortunate to have a lot of depth at wide receiver, and were excited to move forward. "Our leading receivers from last year will all return, and we have another group who know our system and have earned our confidence that they are ready to see more action."
