Aaron Hernandez Could Be Headed to General Population

Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez is doing hard time behind bars right now without bail while he faces charges of first-degree murder and more.

According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk, Hernandez has only been given one hour a day outside:

Though few reliable details regarding the incarceration of Aaron Hernandez have emerged, one specific fact shared by FOX 25 in Boston brings his new reality to life.

Hernandez goes outside one hour per day, and the lights go out each night at 9:00 p.m. ET.

Florio’s friend Darin Gantt revealed Monday that Hernandez will undergo a “classification review”, meaning Hernandez could be thrown in with the general population:

According CBS Boston, Hernandez will undergo another “classification review” today. That’s via Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson, who said that if Hernandez passes the review, he would go into general population.

Placing Hernandez around other inmates is a complicated issue for law enforcement, as they have to balance treating all inmates equally and protecting the famous from other inmates who might try to target them for their 15 minutes of fame.

It’s just the latest development in the Hernandez saga. Stay tuned as we’ll have the results of the review as soon as they happen. Hernandez could be headed to general population with the rest of his inmates—for better or worse.
