Aaron Hernandez

MOVING TO A NEW JAIL

7/7/2014 12:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Aaron Hernandez Moving New Jail
Aaron Hernandez isn't gonna be Bristol County's problem anymore ... the former NFL star just got permission to move to a NEW JAIL near Boston so he could be closer to his lawyers. 

Hernandez had begged a judge for the transfer last month -- claiming the distance to Bristol County, MA was a burden on his Boston-based lawyers. Plus, he felt the people who ran the jail could be out to get him after Aaron allegedly threatened one of the guards. 

It's unclear when Hernandez will leave -- or exactly where he will go -- but he's gotta be pumped about it ... since he's been up to his ears in trouble ever since he stepped foot in Bristol County Jail back in June 2013. 

Among the issues -- Hernandez attacked an inmate, allegedly threatened to kill a guard and his family and pulled a food scheme inside BCJ. 

For what it's worth, the victim in the jailhouse fight said Aaron "hits like a bitch."

What inept reporting. He was never being held in Conn. Why would he? He committed a crime, allegedly, in North, Attleboro Ma in Bristol county. He is from Bristol, Conn which has nothing to do with anything. He is, until transfer, being held in the Bristol county house of corrections in New Bedford Mass.

Sadly he is being held in one of those liberal left wing states who don't have the death penalty so the taxpayers in his state will have to support him for the rest of his life in jail.
