GAINESVILLE, Fla., July 1 (UPI) -- Alleged triple-murderer and former New England Patriot and Florida Gator Aaron Hernandez is Mr. July in a calendar available at national retail outlets like Target.

The 2014 Florida Gators wall calendar retails for $9.99 and was likely approved before Hernandez was charged with two, or perhaps all three, of the murders he allegedly committed. The former tight end was originally just charged with the murder of Odin Lloyd on June 26, 2013.
@cvas agreed it's not ideal situation.Thousands of these projects come through for approval months/years in advance.— GatorZone Football (@GatorZoneFB) June 30, 2014
Boston police were also investigating Hernandez for a July 2012 double-homicide and he has since been charged for that crime as well.
This isn't the first time something like this has happened.
In addition to Hernandez, prosecutors have also charged Ernest Wallace and Carlos Ortiz with first-degree murder in Lloyd's killing. All three men have pleaded not guilty.
