Aaron Hernandez

Will Stay in Solitary

'It's In His Best Interest'

Aaron Hernandez will NOT be moved out of solitary confinement at the Bristol County Jail ... after officials decided it would be in his "best interest" to remain isolated from the general population, TMZ has learned.

As we previously reported, the alleged murderer was placed in solitary right after he was booked -- fearing violent inmates might view the former NFL star as a "prize."  But officials vowed to review Aaron's situation and would consider moving him if they felt it was safe.

But officials met yesterday and a rep for the jail tells TMZ ... after serious discussion, they decided NOT to move Hernandez, believing it would be in his "best interest" to stay. The insinuation -- he's still in danger.

The jail rep says the ex-NFL star is "doing well" behind bars ... and hasn't had any problems so far.

As far as visitors go -- "He has been getting visitors but we do not give out who is visiting him ... but people do come regularly."

It is in the best interest of the other prisoners to keep this killer away from them.

I guess those prison guards are just trying to retain his azz virginity for a little longer. Maybe until after the trial and he's sent to the "big house" in Massachusetts.

I'm sure they'll rip him a new one in there and he'll be a prized sex slave biatch to the head honcho gangbanger dudes.

Just because he has some fame on the outside doesn't mean he should get special treatment on the inside. He was big and bad with his gun and posse. Let's see if he's as big without them. Put him in with his kind... Criminals.
