Aaron Hernandez is locked up, but the officials in Bristol County are worried about his security.
According to Bill Shields of WBZ TV, Sheriff Tom Hodgson said he’s keeping Hernandez isolated from other inmates for his own safety.
“He’s high-profile,” Hodgson said. “Anybody with a high-profile, we’re very careful with. There are people in the prison who would like to make a name for themselves.
“He’s being treated as any other prisoner, no better, no worse. All of the people that are in the unit that he’s in are all in single cells, no inmates are allowed out with any other inmate.”
Hernandez is currently in a single-bed cell, with no contact with other inamtes. He’s allowed five visitors a week, not including his lawyers.
