Aaron Hernandez Doc Puts Bristol County on National Television
The new documentary Aaron Hernandez Uncovered is currently airing on the Oxygen network, and it puts Bristol County right into the national spotlight.
The two-part documentary, running a total of four hours, examines the former Patriots tight end's life, and especially his legal problems, murder conviction and subsequent suicide.
Serving as consulting producer for the documentary is Jose Baez, the defense attorney who has represented numerous high-profile clients, including Hernandez. He features prominently throughout, as does Hernandez' fiancee Shayanna Jenkins and others close to Hernandez.
It also features Bristol County District Attorney Thomas Quinn, who led the prosecution against Hernandez in the murder of Odin Lloyd, as well as Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson, who had Hernandez in his charge during his time at the Bristol County House of Correction in Dartmouth.
New Bedford-based attorney George Leontire, who was also part of Hernandez' defense team, also appears and declares truth to something that had long been rumored about Hernandez.
"This man clearly was gay," Leontire says in the doc. “(He) acknowledged it. Acknowledged the immense pain that it caused him."
Aaron Hernandez Uncovered is airing repeatedly on the Oxygen network as well as On Demand and on Oxygen.com.
