    Warrant justified: Prosecutors score win in Hernandez case

    Prosecutors won a partial victory Monday when a judge ruled that the seizure of two computer hard drives and a cell phone from Aaron Hernandez’s home were proper -- and that the evidence on them can be used in a murder trial looming for the former football star.

    That evidence includes images taken from the surveillance system at Hernandez’s North Attleboro, Mass., home that prosecutors allege show him with a pistol just minutes after Odin Lloyd was gunned down in a secluded field less than a mile away.

    In her ruling, Judge E. Susan Garsh concluded that the search warrant was justified and that investigators were proper in confiscating two computer hard drives that were part of the home surveillance system at Hernandez’s mansion. She also ruled that Massachusetts state troopers were proper in taking a single cell phone.

    Jenkins has pleaded not guilty to perjury. Defense attorney Janice Bassil has moved to dismiss the charge. A message left Wednesday for Bassil seeking comment wasn't immediately returned.

    A judge had ordered the additional information turned over following defense complaints...

    I don't think it comes as a shock that Hernandez is going down hard like a North Korean test missile.
