Hernandez Asks for Jail Transfer, Victims Seek Bonus Money

Hernandez Happenings

Two recent developments have emerged regarding Aaron Hernandez’s murder allegations.

Per the Associated Press, the 24-year-old ex-New England Patriot has requested to move prisons, from Bristol County to a facility nearer to Boston, as his lawyers Michael Fee and James Sultan have cited that long travel hours to meet with their client. Hernandez has been involved in multiple disputes among jailmates, another reason his attorneys believe a transfer is needed.

Additionally, Fee and Sultan revealed that they have faced limitations when trying to communicate with Hernandez.

Sheriff Thomas M. Hodgson thinks differently, however.

“He’s not being treated any different than any person in that place,” Hodgson said. “I’m very comfortable with our practices. We are nationally accredited.”

Also, Mike Florio of NBC Sports’ Pro Football Talk has detailed a situation in which Hernandez’s victims have sued the Patriots organization for the wrongful death lawsuit against the former Florida tight end. Hernandez could be due $3.25 million in bonus money, as well as $2.96 million in “guaranteed payments” from the Patriots.

He signed his professional football contract in 2012, so he appears likely to gain the $3.25 million asset.  The suing action by his victims would thwart this money, though, along with the $2.96 million.

    who ever would have thought. 24 years old, a millionaire, nice new home, girl friend, great job, one of the best at
    what he was hired for, everything any normal human would be in 7th heaven to get and he couldn’t get out of
    the hood. What a shame for any victims and for Hernandez.No doubt he will die in Jail.

    I see no reason not to transfer him to death row right now. All scum like him and the ones who support him still (read as: The Pouncey Brothers) deserve it.
