    A witness expected to testify at the upcoming double murder trial of former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez has been sentenced to five years in prison for his involvement in a 2014 Hartford, Connecticut bar shooting.  

    Alexander Bradley was sentenced Monday for illegally possessing a firearm and reckless endangerment, according to officials from Hartford Superior Court. 

    Bradley fired at the bar shortly after being shot and told a judge he was going through traumatic events and isn't the same person he was then. 

    Bradley testified during Hernandez's first murder trial, for the 2013 killing of a man who was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancee. 

    Prosecutors said Bradley was a witness to the 2012 double killing. Hernandez is accused of shooting Bradley in the face in Florida in 2013 so he wouldn't talk. 

    Hernandez has pleaded not guilty.
