I didn’t know this was something the sheriff could stop, but he is going to try his hardest.

“I don’t subscribe to that. I feel that those rights are things that you access on the outside, if you’re a good citizen,” he said. “We’ll do everything we can to not have that happen.”

Is this legal?

The reason Hernandez would want to get married, has nothing to do with love, but legal protection. If Hernandez is married his wife could be shielded from testifying against him at trial.

Sheriff Thomas M. Hodgson seems to be enjoying his time in the spotlight.
