(AUDIO) Assistant California DA: One Big Difference Between the Ray Lewis and Aaron Hernandez Case is Technology
Dave Zulfa, an assistant district attorney in California, joined Booger and Rich to discuss the strategy of the prosecution in the Aaron Hernandez case.
Zulfa said that public safety is the main concern of judges when determining bail and community standing is generally irrelevant. He also said that Aaron Hernandez has the means to post the amount of bail the court were to set and that denying bail is a move by the courts to ensure the public’s safety.
Zulfa said that the prosecution is using new technology like tracking cell phones to build a strong case against Hernandez. This kind of technology wasn’t available in the Ray Lewis case. Zulfa said it’s amazing how phones can still be tracked even when they’re destroyed like the one Hernandez handed over to the police.
