Aaron Hernandez recently learned that he’d be spending the rest of his life behind bars for the murder of Odin Lloyd, but he’s facing some additional charges for other alleged crimes. According to Yahoo! News, Hernandez has been indicted for “witness intimidation” after he allegedly shot his friend, Alexander Bradley, in the face. Evidently, the former Patriots tight end didn’t care for a comment that Bradley made about a double murder in Boston that may or may not have involved Hernandez, so he shot him.
“The double murder happened in 2012 in Boston. Alexander Bradley was in the car with Hernandez the night of the drive-by shooting, prosecutors claim, according to the Courant. Bradley, who testified in Hernandez’s first murder trial, made a comment about the double murder. Hernandez shot him in the eye, prosecutors say.”
Aaron Hernandez will soon be on trial for the murders of Daniel de Abreu and Safrio Furtado. It is believed that one of the men bumped into Hernandez at a club, causing the former NFL player to spill his drink. Sources say that this sent Hernandez into a rage. He supposedly ended up following the guy and his friend after they left the club, and he allegedly shot and killed them both.
Some say that police actually stopped Aaron after the shooting, but when they realized who he was, they let him go. Clearly thinking that a Patriots player wouldn’t have anything to do with such a thing, officers probably didn’t think twice about it.
If Aaron Hernandez is convicted on the witness intimidation charge, he faces 10 years in state prison, according to the Los Angeles Times. Of course, none of that really matters much since he will likely be locked away for life (an appeal is pending).

As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Hernandez is spending his time at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Massachusetts. The maximum-security facility is no joke. Hernandez will be spending the majority of his time alone, only allowed out of his cell for a couple of hours a day. ‘Tis the life of a convicted murderer.
It has been reported that Hernandez will be able to have visitors three times a week. It is unknown if his fiancée, Shayanna Jenkins, and their daughter, Avielle, have been in to visit him since his April sentencing.
