Prosecutor: Tipster who raised Aaron Hernandez juror concern had written him sexual letters


FALL RIVER, Massachusetts — A Massachusetts prosecutor says an anonymous tipster who raised questions about a juror in the murder trial of former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez had a sexually explicit relationship with him.

Prosecutor William McCauley says in a filing released Monday that an attempt by Hernandez's lawyer to question the woman under oath is an "unwarranted fishing expedition."

The woman's identity has been redacted in court documents.

Hernandez's lawyer says she called him anonymously after his murder conviction in April and claimed wrongdoing by the juror.

McCauley says the woman wrote Hernandez sexually explicit letters before and during the trial. He says her father served time in jail with Hernandez.

He says she does not work with the juror as she claimed, and her claims should not be taken seriously.
