His new lawyer thinks so.Jose Baez, who served as Hernandez’s attorney for the double murder trial, believes Hernandez could eventually get out of prison.“I think so, I think so,” Baez told TMZ when asked in an interview whether he thinks Hernandez will get out of prison. “I think that if we look back at some of the things that are available to appeal on that case, I think there’s a strong likelihood. And if he hires me for the second trial, we’re going to go all at it.

The executive director of the statewide inmate-advocate organization said she believes Aaron Hernandez’s death is the first reported successful suicide by an inmate hanging a sheet from a window at the maximum-security Souza-Baranowski prison, as authorities say Hernandez did.

Leslie Walker, executive director of the nonprofit Prisoners’ Legal Services of Massachusetts, which serves indigent inmates, said the state had a worse-than-average inmate suicide rate a decade ago but had done some work to “suicide proof” its facilities, such as installing clothing hooks that collapse if too much weight is placed on them.

Hernandez's lawyer thinks ex-NFL star was murdered?

  Hernandez's lawyer thinks ex-NFL star was murdered? One of the attorneys who represented Aaron Hernandez in his most recent murder trial does not believe the former NFL star would take his own life, and the lawyer is planning to investigate the death. Jose Baez, who helped Hernandez get acquitted just days ago of murdering two men outside a Boston nightclub back in 2012, has launched an investigation on behalf of Hernandez’s family. Baez has reportedly not ruled out that Hernandez was murdered by either his fellow inmates or someone who works at the prison where he was being held.

Walker, from past visits to the prison, described the layout of the standard maximum-security cells there. The windows are small rectangles about three feet off the ground, and the metal frame is flush with the glass, leaving no easy way to slip a sheet through or around the metal, she said.

“It’s designed as a supermax prison, so it’s mostly cement and then the frame around the window is metal,” Walker said. “I imagine there would be an opportunity to figure out a way to pry that metal, but I had not heard of it before.”

“There is not a ledge, so I don’t think he could have jumped off the ledge. But there is a desk built into the wall close to the window,” providing a possibility, Walker said.

Hernandez’s agent, Brian Murphy tweeted Wednesday morning that there was “absolutely no chance he took his own life.”

At Souza-Baranowski, most inmates spend 19 hours a day in their cell, leaving for some gym time and for three weekly outdoor recreation periods in a caged deck at the end of their cell block, Walker said.

Some inmates eat in a cafeteria while others “feed in block,” meaning they are brought their meals in their cells from a cart, she said.

The state has four basic tiers of security for inmates: maximum, medium, minimum, and minimum/pre-release. Inmates convicted of first-degree murder, as Hernandez was in 2015, customarily begin with two years in maximum security.

After that, they are eligible to move to medium security according to the state’s point-based classification system, which considers age, criminal history, prison disciplinary history, any escape history, education, and other factors — meaning Hernandez may have been eligible for a transfer soon, Walker said.

As of last week, the state had 900 inmates in maximum security cells at Souza-Baranowski and 176 in maximum-security medical or support beds.
