Wrestler Jeff Hardy pleads guilty to drug charges, gets 10 days in jail> <

CARTHAGE - Professional wrestling star Jeff Hardy was sentenced today to 10 days in jail, 30 months of probation and a $100,000 fine as part of a plea deal that will keep him out of prison.

Hardy, 34, who lives in the 200 block of Boys Camp Road in Cameron, pleaded guilty to two counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver a controlled substance and a single count of conspiracy to traffic in a substance containing opium, all felonies.

Hardy was arrested Sept. 11, 2009, in a raid on his home and charged with several felony drug counts including trafficking in opium by possession, possession of cocaine, maintaining a dwelling for keeping and selling controlled substances, and two counts of possession with intent to sell a controlled substance.

As a result of the plea deal, prosecutors dropped the other charges but said he must remain in a dug abuse treatment program.

Assistant District Attorney Warren McSweeney said the raid came after employees at a Fayetteville FedEx distribution center called police about a suspicious package. The package was addressed to Hardy from a fan in Florida. It contained a Maxwell House coffee can filled with 262 prescription hydrocodone pain killers.

Police resealed the package and had the pills delivered to Hardy at his home. When he accepted the package, Moore County sheriff's deputies raided the house and found other drugs, as well.

Hardy's lawyer, James Van Camp of Pinehurst, said Hardy got involved with the pills to cope with the pain and damage to his body that he endured as a professional wrestler.

Until recently, Hardy was the top star of Impact Wrestling, formerly Total Nonstop Action wrestling.

Hardy remains on the company's roster, and Van Camp asked Superior Court Judge Joseph Turner to allow his client to travel outside of North Carolina and the country to continue his work.

Turner granted the request.

Wait, he was the top star? What would Hogan say about this?

Trial of the century? more like trial that lasts a century!
In the thread on his original arrest I said he would do no jail time. How wrong was I!

So I take it "jail" and "prison" are different?

Yep. In Prison, you are fully processed and in the custody of the state or federal magistrates and your process of legal avenues are different. Jail is either municipal or county detention centers where it is under the purview of the local magistrates. They can do things like allow house arrest, release him after 1 hour of detention, ect, where prison is under the governor, usually.



We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

Jail is for a short stay usually run by the locals. Prison is for a lengthy stay and is state run. I've never spent time in either, but I'm pretty sure if you get an option you always pick jail.

Given his track record, 30 months of probation might not be that easy for him.

I just realised something (spoilers about tonight's TNA show):


Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
Tonight's the night Jeff hardy "returns" to TNA, taped last week, asking for fans to give him another chance. It's at the end of the show. Might they cut that out entirely after the events of today?

TNA knew in advance that the court case would be likely (and finally) be resolved the same day as this taping would air, may have known about the level of punishment of Jeff was in for and still put him on TV for the spoiler thing we won't mention. I think they're okay with it, because he's Jeff Hardy.

Not without a time machine. Impact was taped over a week ago.

He got ten days. I'm sure TNA can work around it.
In fact, if Hardy got this plea bargain, I'm sure they were aware of this and will have no trouble working with this.

Not necessarily. If you have an option of 10 days in jail or 10 years in prison, sure you take the jail. But if it were closer in time, say a year and a day in jail (which I believe is the maximum sentence one can receive in county jail (though perhaps that varies by state) or two years in prison, the prison option may very well be the better deal.

Unless you're in maximum security prison, chances are you're going to have a lot more "freedom" in prison that in jail. Most jails are going to have a lot less recreation options than prisons. (For instance, the county jail in which I spent nearly five months had an asphalt paved area that was open to the sky, whereas the prison in which I spent about a year and a half had a paved track, football/soccer & baseball fields, horseshoe & washer pits, indoor and outdoor weight rooms, bocce ball courts and foosball/snooker tables, plus board games you could check out and bring back to your cell.) The prison also had a decent library (small but with a good quality selection of books) whereas the jail had a pile of crappy books that had been donated.

There's also the fact that in prison you can get some semblance of stability as far as who you spend your time with, assuming you and your cellmate aren't idiots who constantly get thrown into "solitary" (which isn't really solitary anymore due to the lack of space), thus resulting in you getting assigned to a different cell when you get out. Whereas in jail people are coming and going constantly.

Also, jail comes with probation, prison comes with parole (in most cases) and that's a huge difference. To put it simply, if you have 30 months of probation and you fuck up on month 29, you go to prison for 30 months. If you have 30 months of parole and fuck up on month 29, you go to prison for one month.

My brother is in prison (medium security) and has spent most of his life in prison or jail.

He prefers neither of course, but prefers prison, because he knows where he stands and everyone else in there knows also. More freedom in prison unless as previous posted noted, you're in max or lock up.

Jails are also a real crap shoot depending on which jail.

Louis Theroux did a very good documentary on BBC2 about mega jails in Miami, where remanded but unsentenced prisoners are kept pending hearing dates. If its ever available on your side of the Atlantic i'd recommend it, I guess the clips on the BBC site will be blocked blocked but it'll probably be on Youtube somewhere. It sure made the particular jail he was in seem like an awfully shitty zoo. It seemed like the only reason you'd want to stay there long term is if you know you're likely to end up on death row after your trial.

Well, he's also fined $100,000. Not a small amount I'd say. I doubt that without paying such a huge amount he'd still get away with 10 days.

30 months probation also seems a lot to me.

I don't think he got away easily.

So is he already serving the 10 days? Does anyone know if he has even been to rehab during his sabbatical?

No, that gets adjudicated too. Maybe it will take another 2 years to figure out.

I do: no. In his defense, he ... doesn't want to.

Has Jeff Hardy proven that he's able to stay out of trouble for 30 months? I think we'll be getting another "Jeff Hardy goes to jail" thread in the next year or so.

I don't know why anybody's surprised at a light 10 day penalty. Has an active wrestler ever been incarcerated for a significant period? The only one who comes to mind is Brian Adams and that's a surprise to me, given how often certain wrestlers seem to get in trouble.

Hmmm ... well, as mentioned in the "Trade" thread, they did move 2/3 of the bWo (Stevie Richards & Simon "Nova" Dean) over to Smackdown. It at least makes you scratch your head and wonder.
