Aaron Hernandez can now watch the NFL on Sundays - from jail

Wednesday October 15th, 2014

Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez can now enjoy NFL Sundays from the comfort of his own jail cell. Suffolk County Sheriff told the Boston Herald

“He’s doing fine,” Tompkins said. “No problems, no complaints, so I think everything’s working out right. He can probably watch the Patriots games.”

In July, Hernandez moved to a downtown Boston detention facility. He is awaiting trial for the murder of Odin L. Lloyd in 2013, and the murders of Daniel de Abreu and Safiro Furtado in 2012.  

In January, Hernandez was banned from watching Patriots games. At the time, he was being held in the Bristol (Mass.) House of Correction. He was indicted by a grand jury for assaulting another inmate in February.
