On July 7,a Superior Court judge approved a request from Aaron Hernandez's lawyers to move the convicted former New England Patriot tight end to a prison closer to Boston.

A Superior Court judge has approved a request to move convicted former New England Patriot tight end Aaron Hernandez to a jail closer to Boston. 

The Hartford Courant's Jenny Wilson says the request came from Hernandez's lawyers, who wish to have Hernandez closer to them as his trial date draws closer: 

"Accused killer Aaron Hernandez will be moved from the jail in North Dartmouth, Mass. where he has been held for the past year to a different facility closer to Boston. 

"At a hearing Monday, Superior Court Judge Susan Garsh ordered the transfer out of Bristol County, approving a request from Hernandez's Boston-based lawyers, who had asked that the former New England Patriot native be closer to them as they prepare for trial. 

"The new surroundings could be a welcome change for Hernandez, who is charged with assaulting a fellow inmate and threatening a guard at the Bristol County House of Corrections in North Dartmouth, Mass. 

"Hernandez is charged in the June 2013 shooting death of Odin Lloyd. He faces two more murder counts in Suffolk County, Mass. accused of killing two men in Boston during a 2012 drive-by shooting. 

"Defense lawyers said Monday they will submit a memo to the court within a week as to when they will be prepared for trial in the Lloyd case. A date was tentatively set for Oct. 6, but Garsh expressed concerns that parties in the case would be ready in time. 

"Prosecutors say they are prepared to try Hernandez by October. Defense attorneys, howevers, are still reviewing evidence they received from prosecutors. James Sultan, one of Hernandez's lawyers, said Monday that he anticipated filing more motions, including one to change the trial venue, and that there's 'certainly more that's going to be in the pipeline.' 

"Hernandez appeared in court Monday dressed in khaki pants and a suit jacket. His older brother, DJ Hernandez, a UConn graduate and football coach at the University of Iowa, attended the hearing -- his first courtroom appearance since the former Patriot tight end was arrested and charged with a murder a year ago.

"The court also requested that all media outlets produce outtake footage from a June 2013 search of Hernandez's home in North Attleboro, Mass. Defense lawyers have filed motions to supress evidence, and at issue in this particular case is whether the police officer was holding a Manila folder containing the warrant and affidavit when he executed the search. The stations were asked to provide footage by July 21.

"The next hearing was scheduled for Aug. 11."

CNN's Susan Candiotti and Allie Malloy confirmed Hernandez's jail transfer in their own July 7 report: 

"A Massachusetts judge granted a release request Monday to transfer ex-New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez to a jail closer to his lawyers in Boston as he awaits trial on murder charges.

"Judge Susan Garsh approved the move after Hernandez's lawyers asked to make the commute shorter between their law offices in Boston and the jail in Bristol County where Hernandez has been held for more than a year. Hernandez's lawyers have said the trip, about 60 miles, can take up to two hours in traffic.

"Since his arrest in June 2013, Hernandez has been held at the Bristol House of Corrections in a 10-feet-by-7-feet cell. 

"Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson told CNN that Hernandez will likely be transferred to another jail on Tuesday.

"Watching the proceedings Monday were Hernandez's mother and older brother, DJ, who is an assistant coach at the University of Iowa. Both have remained silent on the charges.

"Also in attendance was Urusla Ward, mother of murder victim Odin Lloyd.

 

"Hernandez is charged with 'orchestrating the execution' of Lloyd on June 17, 2013.

"In a separate case, the former tight end also is charged in the drive-by shootings of Safiro Furtado and Daniel Abreu in Boston in 2012. The trial date is for May 2015."

Hernandez suited up for the Patriots from 2010-2012, amassing 1,956 yards and 18 touchdowns on 175 receptions, per ESPN stats.
