Aaron Hernandez's Girlfriend Wants Perjury Charges Dropped

Splash News

Last summer Aaron Hernandez's girlfriend, Shayanna Jenkins, found herself facing charges of perjury in connection with Hernandez's murder case. Now, Jenkins' lawyer announced on Monday, she is seeking dismissal of these charges.

According to Fox News Latino, Defense Attorney Janice Bassil said she intends to file motions to have the charges brought against Jenkins dropped.

"I just don't see the evidence supporting these charges," Bassil said during a proceeding outside the Fall River Superior courthouse.

Bassil reportedly asked the judge to allow for more time to review discovery materials in the case, which the judge has approved.

Jenkins, who plead not guilty to the charge last year, is currently free on personal recognizance.
