Hernandez’ Attorneys Claim Hodgson Violated Their Client’s Rights
Bristol County prosecutors say they do not oppose a request from former Patriots player Aaron Hernandez to move him to a jail closer to his Boston attorneys.
However, in their written transfer request, Hernandez’s lawyers accused the administrator of the Bristol County House of Correction, Sheriff Thomas Hodgson of violating Hernandez’s privacy and due process rights.
Its an allegation the Sheriff strongly denies….
Hodgson says no one has done more than he has, to protect Hernandez’ rights. Bristol County prosecutors called the defense claims “baseless, theatrical, and legally unsupportable.”
Hernandez is in the House of Correction in Dartmouth where he is charged in the 2013 shooting of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd. His lawyers want him moved to a jail closer to Boston, where Hernandez is charged in the 2012 killings of two men.
He has pleaded not guilty.
