After the verdict was delivered, staff from Bristol County brought Hernandez to a state prison not far from Gillette Stadium, where Hernandez used to play football in front of tens of thousands of cheering fans.
There, he told them, "I'll miss you guys, but they got it wrong," Sheriff Thomas Hodgson said. "He didn't really have much of a change in his demeanor. He pretty much still had a swagger in his step."
"He doesn't really look at it as jail," Hodgson said. "It's more like training camp."
"Staff members were directed to treat Hernandez like any other inmate," Hodgson said.
The problem is he is not like any other inmate because he is NFL. Odin Lloyd texted that before his own execution.
Aaron Hernandez is marked man in a confined facility. His enemies and friends are really members of the 1970's Oakland Raiders(Black and Gold).
It has been 22 months since the June 17, 2013 murder of semi-pro football player by Aaron Hernandez. During the time that Aaron has spent in prison, he has been involved in two major skirmishes. The first was in November, 2013 when Hernandez threatened to do bodily harm to someone who worked at the jail.
The second one was on February 25, 2014 when Aaron was indicted on charges of assault and battery after threatening to kill a prison guard.
Prison officials have already had to move Aaron Hernandez from the medical ward to a “Class 2″ jail cell where he is isolated from the general population.

“The reason for this move is simply to protect him,” Bristol County Sheriff Tom Hodgson said. “We wouldn’t want some inmate trying to get any notoriety by attempting to harm Aaron Hernandez.”
Of course, there is the other side of Aaron Hernandez. "Aaron would make every effort to get extra sandwiches," Sheriff Thomas Hodgson said. "He would just try to convince the officers to give him more than what they otherwise could get."
A concerned Aaron Hernandez requested a move so that he could assist his defense team. Hernandez was transferred to the Nashua Street Jail in Boston so that he could be closer to his attorneys.
Three transfers, one fight, one threat, one suicide watch and some extra sandwiches and we have yet to reach the two year mark for Aaron Hernandez. Things became a little more clear for Hernandez following Thursday's verdict In Bristol County Superior Court in Fall River, MA.
After a brief stay at Cedar Junction prison in Walpole, Aaron has his final resting place in Shirley, MA. Souza-Baranowski is the State Department of Correction's newest prison. It opened in 1998 and is about 40 miles west of Boston.
It houses more than 1,000 inmates and is named for two department employees killed during a failed escape attempt in 1972.
Now you know the ending to The Longest Yard III.
