Belle Glade man who shipped guns to ex-NFL star Aaron Hernandez gets 2 years behind bars

hernandez-bigOscar Hernandez Jr. of Belle Glade was sentenced today to two years in federal prison for shipping guns to former New England Patriots player and convicted killer Aaron Hernandez.

Oscar Hernandez — who is not related to Aaron Hernandez — had pleaded guilty to charges including gun conspiracy and lying to a grand jury.

Public defender Charles P. McGinty had sought a one-year sentence – or about as long Oscar has been in custody, saying his client was lured into the scheme because he was awed by a celebrity, “grateful to be noticed, and had no way of anticipating the terrible events which would follow.”

Oscar Hernandez shipped several guns from Florida to Aaron Hernandez in Massachusetts before the then-tight end  killed a man in 2013. Oscar didn’t supply the murder weapon used to slay Odin Lloyd.

Aaron Hernandez is serving life in prison without parole.
