The American Civil Liberties Union is expressing concern about the accomodations for Aaron Hernandez while he is held in jail awaiting trial. In a blog post on ACLU.ORG, the group argues solitary confinement does more damage than good.

However Bristol County Sheriff Tom Hodgson says Hernandez is not being held in solitary condinement.

Hodgson says Hernandez has privileges including 3 hours out of his cell, visits, reading and phone calls. The former Patriot tight end is currently being held without bail and some experts say it could be a year before the trial starts.
