EXCLUSIVE: Ex-NFL star Aaron Hernandez – Shut Down in Battle over Alleged Prison Phone Calls Hack
The Dirty can exclusively reveal ex-NFL star/convicted felon, Aaron Hernandez, was shut down in his legal battle over his prison phone calls being hacked …. with a federal judge throwing out the entire case earlier today.
Hernandez sued the company Securus Technologies Inc. The company records all in and out jailhouse phone calls, except certain conversations protected by attorney-client privileges.
He said the company’s electronic database was hacked and an unauthorized party obtained access to the recordings of the ex-NFL star’s jailhouse phone calls.
The calls were allegedly hacked back in 2014 while Hernandez was locked up awaiting his murder trial. He sued demanding information on how the conversations were accessed and the number of people who listened.
Securus Technologies fired back at Hernandez’s lawsuit demanding the case be thrown out … saying all inmate telephone calls are subject to monitoring and it is deemed to be consent when the inmate picks up the jail phone.
Then on February 2nd, the judge came back with his decision and threw out the ex-NFL stars entire case.
The order states Hernandez provided no evidence his constitutional rights were violated. He notes the allegations are entirely speculative with no concrete proof to back them up. The entire case was dismissed and the ex-NFL star awarded nothing.
