Aaron Hernandez wasn't among the large contingent of fans who watched the Patriots eliminate the Colts in the divisional round last week. And he won't be watching when his former team plays the Broncos in the AFC Championship game on Sunday, either.
This is because Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hogsdon has informed the media that Hernandez will not be allowed to watch the Patriots-Broncos clash on the account that he has no television privileges.
"He's not allowed to watch any TV," Hodgson said. "As far as finding it out, if they hear an officer talking about it they might find out that way. He could probably hear about it if some other inmate were to call home and he were to yell out."
There is another way Hernandez could gain information about the outcome of the game, though. The maligned ex-NFL star does have telephone access and could phone a friend in order to find out what happens. But it might not be immediately after the game ends.
Hernandez is currently behind bars awaiting trial on a first-degree murder charge in the June 2013 slaying of Odin Lloyd. Police are also conducting an investigation involving Hernandez and his role in a double homicide that occurred in July 2012.
