Is C.T.E. a Defense for Murder?The New York Times (2017)
An op-ed about the murder conviction of the New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, who suffered from chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE. Dillard argues in her piece from 2017 that brain damage, from which the majority of pro football players unfortunately suffer, should have been a permissible defense at Hernadez's trial.
