Prosecutors recommend 2 years probation, GPS monitoring for Hernandez cousin
FALL RIVER, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) — Bristol County prosecutors are recommending Aaron Hernandez’s cousin be sentenced to two years probation on a criminal contempt charge in the murder of Odin Lloyd.
Prosecutors say Tanya Singleton’s conduct deserves the maximum punishment provided by law, which is up to 2 1/2 years incarceration in the House of Correction. They note, however, that the Commonwealth could not ensure the defendant’s ongoing treatment for breast cancer would be accomplished if she were incarcerated. For that reason, they’re requesting she be placed on probation for two years.
The Commonwealth is also recommending that Singleton be confined to her home and subject to GPS monitoring during that two-year period. She would only be allowed to leave her home for medical treatments and to meet with her attorney.
Singleton is expected to change her plea to guilty at a hearing Tuesday.
Hernandez, 24, has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the 2013 shooting death of Odin Lloyd, a semi-professional football player from Boston who was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancee. The ex-NFL tight end has also pleaded not guilty, in a separate case, to the shooting deaths of two men in Boston in 2012.
