Aaron Hernandez

Stuck in the Slammer

BAIL DENIED

NFL star and murder suspect Aaron Hernandez has just been denied bail ... meaning he'll rot behind bars until his trial ... and that could take forever.

Hernandez was present in court today for a bail review hearing, where his lawyer begged the judge to release Hernandez from custody while he awaits trial.

But the judge wasn't moved by his arguments -- that Hernandez is an upstanding citizen and family man with no flight risk -- claiming the prosecution already had very strong evidence that Hernandez had committed the crime.

As for the evidence ... the prosecutor went through the entire timeline leading up to the murder of Odin Lloyd earlier this month, including matching shell casings found at the murder scene and inside Hernandez' rental car. He also mentioned the photo TMZ posted last night -- showing Hernandez brandishing a glock in the mirror 4 years ago -- claiming it's possible the murder weapon was also a glock.

The prosecutor said they'd be seeking the max sentence for Hernandez ... life without parole.

Hernandez' fiancee -- who was also present in court -- was inconsolable when the judge issued her decision to keep the NFL star behind bars.

As we reported, Hernandez was remanded into custody yesterday following his arraignment and was ordered to be held WITHOUT bail.

Hernandez has been charged with murder in the death of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd. He's also been hit with 5 gun-related charges.

It could be months -- even a year -- before Hernandez gets his trial.

Not gonna happen. After hearing the evidence they have against you in this case and knowing they are investigating you for multiple other murders, you would have nothing to lose by fleeing - do you really think the judge will give you that opportunity?

If its true that the gum Hernandez chews was spit out very close to Odins body - that looks real bad for him. Plus a gunshot wound in the back of the head means the poor guy was basically executed and dumped close to where Hernandez lives - dosent take a genious to figure that one out. And now theyre saying he was formerly a gang member in Connecticut, (which is almost funny because who would have thought Connecticut had gangs) - dosent look good for the ex-Patriot who evidently has just thrown his life, career and a ton of money away. Very sorry for Mr. Lloyds family & friends.

He's not getting out. He's accused of multiple crimes, and would probably try to silence witness's.

He can't even stop smirking as his lawyer claims he is one of the best players in the country. He should not have become involved in anything this stupid when he has such talent and had a nice future with all those millions!
