Sheriff: Hernandez is a model inmate

By: The Associated Press



Former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez has been a model inmate since being moved to a Boston jail and will be allowed to watch his former teammates on television if his behavior continues.

Suffolk County Sheriff Steven Tompkins tells the Boston Herald there have been “no problems, no complaints,” and Hernandez is mingling with the general population at the Nashua Street Jail.

Hernandez is jailed without bail after pleading not guilty to killing three people in two unconnected shootings.

He was moved to Boston from a Bristol County jail to be closer to his lawyers.

While in the Bristol jail, he had been confined to his cell 21 hours a day, was not allowed to watch football, and reportedly had a run-in with another inmate and threatened a guard.
