Shayanna Jenkins, the girlfriend of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, is accused of lying to a grand jury nearly 30 times, reports Travis Andersen and John R. Ellement of the Boston Globe.

Prosecutors say in new court documents that Jenkins lied during testimony in August about only seeing one gun in her house and about a confidentiality agreement and issues related to the people who cleaned her house. They also say that Jenkins lied about not remembering where she left a large box Hernandez allegedly told her to dispose of.

Jenkins has pleaded not guilty to perjury after being indicted for the charge in September. 

Hernandez, 24, is currently in jail held without bond awaiting trial accused of killing Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old semipro football player who was dating Jenkins’ sister.

More from the Boston Globe:

According to prosecutors, however, Jenkins lied about conversations she had with Hernandez when he called her on June 18 from his attorney’s office at the firm of Ropes & Gray in Boston and instructed her to remove items from the house, McCauley wrote.

She also lied about why she removed the items, her lack of knowledge of those objects, and how she got rid of them, according to McCauley.

Kill him. He's an idiot. All for the cost of a bullet. She's nice looking. Let her work off her sentence, the hard way.

It figures that a liar would ONLY plea not guilty to charges of lying

Yeah, go ahead girls, date the bad boys... Too often, this is where you end up... In court, or in a shallow grave. 

Lying for this guy will earn her a ticket to the poor house all of her life. Everyone will know what she did, how she lied about it, and what a piece of trash she is for helping to cover up a murder that should never have happened. 

Her Boyfriend's "Gangsta" lifestyle was somehow attractive to her... What a poor, deluded, and ignorant soul. As for the rest of you "Gangstas" out there, is this really the reputation you want? Is this really the lifestyle you want to live? Is this really all you aspire to attain in this life? Well, you are setting your sites truly low...

I will never understand the appeal to living like a wannabe criminal or pretending to be a "gangsta". Acting, dressing, and behaving like this lowers your income (Legal Income anyways), your job prospects, and basically insures that terms like "Food Stamps, Low Income Housing, WIC, and Welfare Checks" will always be a part of your vocabulary. Add to that list "Jail, Bail Bondsman, Prison, and living in constant fear of your rivals, other gangs, and your baby being shot because a stray bullet intended for you hit the wrong target" and you get a general idea of why I am stumped that such a large group of people could be so IGNORANT to want to live this way... 

This is not about color, socioeconomic status, or anything of that nature. It is about choosing to live a lifestyle that is popularized by "music", Hollywood, and people who want to make money off this crazy "persona" they have created. Rappers are not fools... They are laughing all the way to the bank... Portraying one thing to keep up their "rep" while surrounded by bodyguards and living in a mansion in a very safe neighborhood, all at the expense of people too ignorant to see the forest for the trees...

After she completes her plea deal and probation, she'll be ready for her career as a Republican politician.

Anyone who has been paying attention the past year or two should remember all the obviously guilty people who are free today. Juries today do not trust the police, prosecutors, judges, etc. They think evidence is mostly contrived and over exaggerated. If the court can not come up with a credible human being that can honestly point a finger and say" I saw him pull the trigger" than chances are slim the suspect is going to jail. In this case they are arresting every one but the house cat.  But Silence is Golden, as they say.

Bwaaha, this woman thought she hit the jackpot when she was impregnated by an NFL star. Of course she's been lying her a55 off to the courts. Idiot.

It's kind of sad. She was just supporting her man. Unfortunately her man is a murderer.

Hernandez had a difficult childhood. We should treat him with more compassion..Ok, just kidding..

The prosecutor makes a lot of accusations; however, I seriously doubt they can prove any of them.  They want her to snitch on Hernandez.  This is the oldest trick in the book.  If they know she lied about all those thing, they should be able to convict Hernandez without her snitching.

@gpellison68 Hernandez was, by most accounts, a choir boy until his father passed away. His brother and mom moved on quickly and so he felt like his "gangster" cousins and friends were the only ones who were there for him while he was struggling to deal with that. His loyalty was to them and he idolized the life they lived because he valued the kinship. Obviously he made more in a day from football than gangbangers make in a lifetime. I don't wanna sound like I'm defending AH, but it's unfortunate that he lost the one person who really looked out for him. Regular kids really can get sucked into stupidity really quickly if no one is paying attention. 


I do think it's stupid that he didn't just marry this girl rather than do the babymama/ long-term fiancee game. She wouldn't have had to testify. Anything's better than lying in court about murder.

She was in court wearing an Obama T-shirt, so I think you have the wrong party.  Since she's going to jail, she'll probably be handling all your vital information when you sign up for Obamacare.

You mean like Jesse Jackson, Jr., Anthony Weiner...whoops, sorry.  Wrong party.

Looks like you made a mistake.  You owe Republicans an apology.

Cops, prosecutors, and judges couldn't care less about the truth. Sad state of affairs in this culture...

@Hola It's called telling the truth.  We are not talking about some stolen bicycle or stereo here.  That tired old line, "snitches get stitches" is verbiage for a prison yard or a rundown ghetto neighborhood, and it has no place in a modern day society or in a conversation about murder.

@Hola ah, read the news on this... they got more than enough to lock and load him for at least life w/o parole, WITHOUT her help. The most damning: the video tape of him going in and out of the house the night of the shooting with the gun in his hands both times that somehow disappeared shortly thereafter. So this ought to be a short trial when it goes down.

Innocent till proven guilty RD come on now.. Hernandez has one of the most innocent faces I ve seen on a person in my lifetime. Also his holiness Tim Tebow considered him a friend and great teammate so that is as good as gold for me. Its folks like you that give judgemental general public a bad name..ROFL.. Sorry couldnt help myself j/k or am I....
