Hopefully Aaron Hernandez isn’t trying to keep up with his former team and how they are looking in the playoffs. According to the Boston Herald, #81 is not allowed to watch any TV much less the NFL.
Bristol Sheriff Thomas M. Hodgson reminded the Boston Herald on Monday that Hernandez is housed in a special-management unit because he is a high-profile inmate. As a result, he is confined to his cell for 21 hours a day and not permitted to watch any television. No inmates get private TV time, and Hernandez is not allowed to be around other inmates.
“It’s jail,” Hodgson said, noting that Hernandez has requested to watch TV before and been denied. “It’s all about standards and sending a message.”
The general population was allowed to watch an hour of the game though. When you first hear this you may have a little sympathy. Until you remember what Hernandez has allegedly done.
