The ex-NFL star and convicted murderer met with Baez at his Massachusetts prison earlier this week — and, moments ago, Baez announced Hernandez has made the move to retain Baez’s firm. “I can now confirm that my firm has been retained to represent Mr. Aaron Hernandez in his upcoming trial,” Baez said in a statement. “Mr. Hernandez strongly maintains his innocence, and I plan to establish that before a jury of his peers.” h/t tmz
