Aaron Hernandez’s Cousin Charged With Contempt For Refusing To Testify, Pleads Not Guilty

A day after Aaron Hernandez was indicted on first degree murder and weapons charges, a cousin of the former New England Patriots star pleaded not guilty to a contempt charge.

Tanya Singleton was charged after refusing to testify before a grand jury about Hernandez.

Bristol County District Attorney Samuel Sutter believes Singleton has information valuable to his case against Hernandez and had offered her immunity.
