Sheriff says Aaron Hernandez moved to isolation for next 30 days
Aaron Hernandez, who has been in jail since he was arrested last summer and charged with first-degree murder, was involved in an altercation with another inmate and now he's in isolation.
Aaron Hernandez has been in jail since he was arrested last summer and charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of Odin Lloyd. Earlier this week, he was involved in an altercation with another inmate at the Bristol County House of Corrections, though the Bristol County Sheriff wouldn't offer specifics into exactly what happened.
"Hernandez and the other inmate had been taunting each other in the days leading up to the altercation," the NECN story added.
"We're investigating it now to find out why two inmates would have been out at the same time in that unit," said Sheriff Thomas Hodgson. ... "I'm not happy that there may have been a breakdown in our system and our protocols."
The Sheriff's Department says that Hernandez has been moved to a more restrictive unit for the next 30 days. NECN, which took a tour of the jail, described Hernandez's new home for the next month:
His cell looks similar to the one he was in prior to the altercation. It's a small barren room, with bars on the windows, a double bunk bed, stainless steel toilet and a small sitting area. However, Hernandez can no longer eat meals by himself in the cafeteria; instead, he must take meals in his cell....
Some other conditions remain the same: Hernandez must spend 23 hours a day in this cell, except for three showers a week, and one hour of recreation a day. He can also take phone calls at times and have lawyer visits.
Hernandez remains in jail awaiting trial.
