The Fayetteville Observer has an article up, covering today's court appearance by Jeff Hardy. As previously reported, the case was continued, but according to the The Fayetteville Observer, the reason is different than previously reported. Assistant Moore County District Attorney Peter Strickland said Hardy's lawyer was sick and the case likely wouldn't be heard again until March 21. He said the Total Nonstop Action wrestler and his lawyer are still negotiating with the District Attorney's Office about a plea deal.
"Hardy's lawyer was sick and the case likely wouldn't be heard again until March 21."
Hardy is charged with trafficking in opium, two counts of possession with intent to sell or deliver a controlled substance, maintaining a dwelling to keep a controlled substance, possession of cocaine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Lawmen found 262 doses of Vicodin prescription painkillers, 180 Soma prescription pills, 55 milliliters of anabolic steroids, a residual amount of powder cocaine and drug paraphernalia when they searched Hardy's home after a tip in 2009.
We apologize for the earlier errors on the new court date and reason for the continuance. There was a conversation in court between the DA and the judge involving a murder case that Jeff Hardy's attorney, James Van Camp, is representing. That was the reason for the mix up.
