FILE- In this Nov. 15, 2012, file photo, Pedro Hernandez appears in Manhattan criminal court in New York. Hernandez was convicted Feb. 14, 2014, for the 1979 kidnap and murder of 6-year-old Etan Patz. His lawyer stated in court papers filed Wednesday, March 15, 2017, that Hernandez could not have gotten a fair trial because the jury was unfairly influenced by how close former jurors were to the Patz family. Members of the first jury who voted to convict Hernandez in 2015, a case that ended in mistrial, attended the second trial and often sat with the boy's father in court.
