As Florio noted earlier this afternoon, Aaron Hernandez isn’t getting much access to others, with only an hour outside each day and a 9 p.m. lights out.

But he could have a new cell at the Bristol County Jail soon.

According CBS Boston, Hernandez will undergo another “classification review” today. That’s via Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson, who said that if Hernandez passes the review, he would go into general population.

Placing Hernandez around other inmates is a complicated issue for law enforcement, as they have to balance treating all inmates equally and protecting the famous from other inmates who might try to target them for their 15 minutes of fame.
