Hernandez being held in solitary confinement

Aaron Hernandez AP

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.

    Maybe he’d like to be with another inmate?

  3. tsizzlesucks says: Jul 2, 2013 8:47 AM

    First of all, it’s a House of Correction….not a prison. The inmates are all kids who will wet their pants when, or if, the get to a real prison. Everyone involved in this case is just looking for a little face time!

    From what I’ve heard over the past week, It’s the other inmates who should be concerned.

  5. spellingcops says: Jul 2, 2013 8:49 AM

    Cmon DG, I’m as riveted to this story as anyone, but this one was unnecessary. I also thought solitary confinement was no windows, basically just a box.

  6. petehemlock says: Jul 2, 2013 8:51 AM

    OK…. Starting to feel sorry for this guy.

  7. tombradyswig says: Jul 2, 2013 8:58 AM

    from a 41 millionaire to this…
    was it worth it ahern?!?! idiot!

  8. wryly1 says: Jul 2, 2013 9:02 AM

    I’m sure the other inmates feel a little safer being separated from a serial killer like Hernandez.

  9. bmorelikeray52 says: Jul 2, 2013 9:05 AM

    Remember Aaron: You did this to yourself. You made the wrong choice and now are paying the consequences for it.

  10. realskipbayless says: Jul 2, 2013 9:08 AM

    I don’t feel bad for him. He took atleast one other life he de deserves whatever they are serving him.

  11. rationalitybias says: Jul 2, 2013 9:09 AM

    Put him in the general population and hopefully he gets what is coming to him.

  12. Iknoweverything says: Jul 2, 2013 9:09 AM

    Can’t keep him hidden away forever. Just a matter of time before Bubba turns him into a b!atch.

    Can’t wait for Bubba to show Hernandez that he isn’t near as tough and hard as he thought

  13. groleo45 says: Jul 2, 2013 9:10 AM

    The bearded guard standing behind him looks like he could take a few snaps at fullback or something.

  14. tiger7575 says: Jul 2, 2013 9:12 AM

    How can you be “Big tough guy” in solitary?

  15. jm91rs says: Jul 2, 2013 9:14 AM

    We get it, Hernandez isn’t in general population for his safety. How many times does this Sheriff have to be interviewed to give details of life behind bars for Hernandez? Anyone else think this Sheriff might be enjoying his 15 minutes of fame a bit too much?

  16. Iknoweverything says: Jul 2, 2013 9:14 AM

    Tattoos, accused of murder, scumbag.

    Are we talking about Hernandez, or the average 49er fan?

  17. 8man says: Jul 2, 2013 9:14 AM

    We are all a little safer now.

    Go Patriots!

  18. awm7353 says: Jul 2, 2013 9:17 AM

    How can the sheriff seriously say Hernandez is being treated as any other prisoner and in the same breath say he is being held in solitary for his safety because he is high profile, meaning, different? Either he is special or he is not. It’s like a sports announcer saying men and women should not be treated any different and then won’t shut up about the females performance even though they suck at what they do.

  19. Rick Spielman is a Magician says: Jul 2, 2013 9:20 AM

    Being in a jail cell by yourself isn’t the same as “solitary confinement.”

  20. packerbackernj says: Jul 2, 2013 9:25 AM

    Can’t he just pay their families millions and be out in 1 month per count like Donte Stallworth did? I mean seriously, what’s the difference between driving with double the legal blood limit and killing someone with your car vs execution style.

  21. SAV says: Jul 2, 2013 9:32 AM

    Ya think Brady, Belichek, and Kraft will be 3 out of the 5 visitors?

  23. thedoubleentandres says: Jul 2, 2013 9:40 AM

    Im starting to suspect he got thrown in jail on purpose in order to bust out his older brother who has been framed for murder, and he will be using his tattoos which really contain blueprints for the prison and little reminders of how to escape.

  24. officialgame says: Jul 2, 2013 9:43 AM

    As long as he doesn’t try to friend me on Facebook, I’m good.

  25. ravensfaninflorida says: Jul 2, 2013 9:51 AM

    I say put him in general population and let Big Bubba have his way with him. It appears he has no remorse for what he is accused of so he deserves what he has coming !!!!!

  26. doctormantistoboggan says: Jul 2, 2013 9:53 AM

    I wonder if Warden Norton let him bring that record player with him.

    Everyone seems to think that the general population of Bristol County Jail is some kind of cross between Oz and Sons of Anarchy.

    Total Crime in Bristol Count, MA (1999-2008)

    Theft – 79,100 counts
    Burglary – 30,079 counts
    Assault – 18,020 counts
    Auto Theft – 13,749 counts
    Robbery – 4,857 counts
    R@pe – 1,417 counts
    Arson – 600 counts
    Murder – 105 counts

    That means that out of 147,927 crimes reported that about 128,000 were theft of property in one form or another. Hardly a hot bed of violent criminals and seething pool of infamy.

    Idiot!!! Donte accidetally killed a guy, and his BAC was .12, NOT double the limit!! Ahern PURPOSELY killed 1, possibly 3 people~!!
    FOOL!! Doesn’t surprise me coming from a toothless packer fan though!!!

    smh

    Is he gassing the CO’s yet?

  32. radford7 says: Jul 2, 2013 10:04 AM

    There are 53 players on an N.F.L roster times 32 teams= 1696 active players not including 5 more players on each teams practice squad. 29 have gotten in trouble this year, which leaves approximately 98.3% of law abiding citizens. Considering the pool of people, about 50% probably come from rough childhoods due to their environment, I think it has been unfair to the sport to paint a picture of the N.F.L being out of control. Enough with the sensationalism and at least give some equal attention to the majority of good works that most players do for their communities.

    Where’s ampats during all this?

  34. thelastwordyaheard says: Jul 2, 2013 10:15 AM

    what are the odds that he’d grow up in Bristol, CT & end up in Bristol jail? ..pretty good, but not the one in Mass.

  35. quickdraw85 says: Jul 2, 2013 10:24 AM

    Maybe he would feel safe in gen pop if they let him carry a gun. That’s the only thing that made him “tough” on the outside.

  36. nflgiant says: Jul 2, 2013 10:29 AM

    Brady is getting old,and will take a beating,Tebow becomes starter,Pats go 7-9.

    Watch out for those other “inamtes.” They’ll get ya.

  38. bennyb82 says: Jul 2, 2013 10:43 AM

    I have a sick feeling that the opening statement from the defense is going to include the words “multiple concussions.”

  39. bennyb82 says: Jul 2, 2013 10:50 AM

    Before being moved to solitary Hernandez suggested that everyone else move and he stay where he is at. When the officers said that is not how it works, Hernandez looked them in the eye and asked, “Well, can I at least shoot them?”

  40. seals1 says: Jul 2, 2013 10:55 AM

    He will be in gen pop in time and will not be a victim but an aggressor. He will be a leader in his block and run the show,,,,,,,,,it’s his new life.

    What I can’t figure out is will he roll with the Hispanic Group or the Black Group in Cell Block and in the quad.

    Either way what a waste of sweet life that could have been.

    ================================

    I agree that the comparison to Donte is not accurate as Donte didn’t intend to kill anyone whereas AHern did.

    BUT – to defend Donte because his BAC was ONLY .12 and NOT double the limit is also idiotic. The fact that he was only .12 and not .16 does not excuse the fact that he was DRUNK at the time he ran over a pedestrian.

    He’s being accused of murder, treat as him as such!!!!

  48. andyreidisthegoat says: Jul 2, 2013 12:22 PM

    This kid grew up in bristol CT, not exactly south central los angeles. He isn’t a gangster he just always wanted to be one. He watched too many movies and played too much grand theft auto. What a waste. Now he will be in jail for the rest of his life. For what? I hope you impressed whoever it was you were trying to impress.

    __________________________

    You’re clueless. There was video of the guy jumping out into traffic and under Florida law Stallworth would probably have beat all the charges except the dui.

    Instead he took his punishment like a man, took his suspension from the league like a man, never complained and still offered to pay the victim’s family enough so they could live comfortably.

    If you’re unable to see the differences between this and what Hernandez is done you’re just not very smart.

    We all know that the Pats can’t be idle losing one TE to jail the other to injury right? PFT how about reporting on which TE are the Pats looking at trading for..Antonio Gates? Jason Witten? It is just a matter of time that the Pats make a move.
