TNA wrestler Jeff Hardy is due back in North Carolina Superior Court today. Hardy still faces four separate felony and misdemeanor counts stemming from his 2009 arrest for alleged drug possession.
Hardy’s case has been continued several times in 2010. The result is that Hardy’s court appearance today is two days shy of the one-year mark since his arrest on September 11, 2009.
Following his arrest, Hardy was charged with three separate counts related to alleged drug possession. A fourth charge – conspiracy to traffic opium – was added in January 2010.
Hardy’s scheduled appearance at Moore County Superior Court this morning in Carthage, N.C. follows a four-day stretch of TNA PPV and Impact tapings in Orlando, Fla. He is not scheduled for TNA’s weekend house show tour that begins on Friday.
The list of charges Hardy is faced with is as follows:
Count 1 – Felony drug trafficking, Two felony charges of possession of a Schedule III controlled substance or drug.
Count 2 – Felony possession of cocaine, Felony maintaining a dwelling for redistribution of controlled substances.
Count 3 – Misdemeanor Possession of drug paraphernalia.
Count 4 – Conspiracy to traffic opium (newly added January 2010).
I wouldn't be surprised if it gets pushed back again, but I highly doubt it. It has been pushed back long enough.
Well, lets see how lucky Hardy is. If he gets cleared of ALL those charges - then he has got to be the luckiest bastard in the world.
