Life behind bars continues to be rough for former New England Patriots tight end and convicted murderer Aaron Hernandez, as Boston’s WCVB-5 is reporting that he was involved in a prison fight for the third time since his incarceration. This time around, Hernandez fought with another inmate at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Facility, but nobody was injured.
Hernandez was sentenced to life without parole back in April after being convicted in the shooting death of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd, who was dating Hernandez’s fiancee’s sister at the time. He is appealing that verdict and has also been charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the shooting deaths of two men back in 2012 following an incident at a Boston nightclub.
Simply put, if Hernandez is serious about proving his innocence and getting out of prison, getting into trouble and fighting other inmates is not helping his case under any circumstances. Instead, he should be keeping to himself and living quietly rather than trying to assert himself as a big shot however he sees fit. By developing that type of reputation in prison, he only hurts his case more.
Unless Hernandez wakes up and smells the coffee and changes his ways, not to mention helps his legal team present evidence that proves his innocence other than simply saying “It wasn’t me,” it’s looking like he’ll be staying right where he is for the foreseeable future.
