If Aaron Hernandez wants to marry his high school sweetheart and mother of his 7-month-old daughter, it’s not going to happen while he’s in the Bristol County jail, Bristol County Sheriff Thomas M. Hodgson told USA TODAY Sports on Tuesday.

Whether Hernandez wanted to tie the knot for love or courtroom strategy, Hodgson won’t have it.

“I don’t subscribe to that. I feel that those rights are things that you access on the outside, if you’re a good citizen,” he said. “We’ll do everything we can to not have that happen.”

Hernandez is being held without bail after he plead not guilty last week to a first-degree murder charge in connection with the execution-style slaying of Odin Lloyd. At his arraignment, Hernandez smiled across the courtroom at his fiancée, Shayanna Jenkins.
