Aaron Hernandez won't be allowed to watch the Super Bowl

BOSTON (AP) Former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez won't be allowed to watch the team take on the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl while on trial for murder.

Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson says Hernandez is not allowed to watch television and has other restrictions imposed on him because he's isolated from other prisoners.

Hodgson says Hernandez had always been subject to those restrictions while at the North Dartmouth jail, where he has been the majority of the time since his June 2013 arrest. He noted other prisoners will not be able to view much of the game since evening television time is limited to an hour.

Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to the 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd, a semi professional football player who was dating his fiancee's sister.
