It’s been three weeks since Aaron Hernandez committed suicide, and a U.S. Judge decided to vacate his 2013 murder conviction Tuesday, because he died before his appeal was heard.

“In the interests of justice, the court has no choice but to abate the proceedings…by vacating Hernandez’s convictions and dismissing the charges against him,” Judge Susan Garsch said.

It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out because right after the judge handed down her decision, Attorney Thomas Quinn said prosecutors will appeal the judge’s decision.

“A defendant, who can cut off his own criminal appeal by suicide and stall civil litigation by a stay of proceedings…has the reins of the entire justice system in his own hands,” prosecutors wrote.
