If the glove don't fit, must acquit!
Just like rappers, athletes have a tendency to slip through the cracks and find themselves in a heap of trouble. Whenever you’re bathing in luxury, money and plush rugs, it’s easy to feel invincible. Sadly, these guys aren’t and had to find out the hard way. A lot of these men are suffering because of their reckless behaviors. Now, they’re paying the price for their sadistic acts of crime.
Mookie Blaylock was a cerebral assassin during his playing days in the NBA. His ability to string the basketball and play stifling defense, wowed opposing players. His legacy crashed and burned when he killed a 44-year-old female in a vehicular homicide. He’s currently in jail for 15 years.
Hernandez was a highly-touted tight-end who flourished under the tutelage of Bill Belichick. Marred by legal troubles and a temperamental attitude, Hernandez quickly found himself behind bars. In 2014, he was indicted for the double homicide of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado. In 2015, he was charged with first-degree murder in the Odin Lloyd case. He’s currently serving life in prison.
OJ Simpson was a heralded running back who possessed an uncanny ability to pound his way into the end-zone. The man was a beast on both the collegiate and professional level. He exuded confidence and swagger back in the day.
Of course, his life derailed when he went to court for the murder of his wife. He narrowly escaped from the claws of the judicial system, but found himself in hot water when he later was arrested in 2008 for numerous felony charges, armed robbery and kidnapping. He’s currently serving a 33-year prison sentence.
