We mentioned last night that Aaron Hernandez would get a chance to appeal a judge’s ruling that he’d be held without bail, and that it could happen soon.
Soon is in a little under three hours, as his bail review hearing is scheduled for 2 p.m. at Fall River Superior Court.
We’ll find out then whether or to what degree he’s deemed a flight risk.
Considering he couldn’t slip out of his house to go to the gas station or the Patriots facility without sending a squadron of news choppers into the air, the idea that he might slip away unnoticed seems unusual. But the judge might also remember Rae Carruth crawling into the trunk of a Toyota Camry headed west from Charlotte in 1999, and hold firm with the original decision.
He’s currently being held in the Bristol County Jail.
