Aaron Hernandez's conviction for the murder of Odin Lloyd has officially been dismissed by a judge reports TMZ.
The case went before the court in Massachusetts early this morning where Hernandez's team argued that the conviction could stand because he had not exhausted all of his appeals before his death.
Prosecutors argue that Hernandez knew about the rule and used it as a loophole in a diabolical plot to get millions of dollars from the Patriots for his family. The evidence, prosecutors claim, was spelled out in his suicide note to his fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins in which he told her: "You're rich!"
Prosecutors say Hernandez knew if his conviction was erased the Patriots would have to pay out the remainder of his NFL contract estimated to be worth around $6 MILLION.
The Bristol County DA's Office wasted no time responding. They already announced that they will be appealing the judges decision.
