Engaged to his high school sweetheart.
Father to a 7 month-old girl.
Held without bail for murder.
If Aaron Hernandez wants to marry his fiancee — it won’t happen while he’s in jail.
Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson tells USA Today, “We’ll do everything we can to not have that happen”
His fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins, had been talking to investigators following the murder of Odin Lloyd until prosecutors say Hernandez called her and shut her down.
Consider this — if married Jenkins would not have to testify against Hernandez.
The US Supreme Court has ruled prisoners have a constitutional right to marry but prison administrators have the final say.
Sheriff Hodgson explained his reasoning to the paper saying, “I don’t subscribe to that. I feel that those rights are things that you access on the outside, if you’re a good citizen”
Sheriff Hodgson has repeatedly said Hernandez will get no special treatment — but the sheriff overstepping his bounds?
