Jeff Hardy Facing Up To 14 Years In Prison If Convicted On Opium Charge
January 24, 2021
The Charlotte Observer is reporting that local law enforcement raided Jeff Hardy’s Cameron home at about 10:30 a.m. on Friday morning after receiving information developed by the Fayetteville Police Department.
The newspaper says Hardy was at home with “his wife” when the raid took place. Presumably, she is his fiancee Beth. She was not arrested.
Chief Deputy Neil Godfrey of the Moore County Sheriff’s Office said the case remains under investigation and further charges are possible. He declined to say whether the additional charges could be against Hardy or others.
He added it’s too early to determine whether the drugs found in Hardy’s home were for personal use or distribution to others.
The article also noted that opium trafficking, which is one of the charges Hardy faces, carries a mandatory prison sentence of three to fourteen years, even for first-time offenders.
