Panthers’ Greg Hardy Found Guilty Of Assault, Sentenced To Probation

greg hardyCHARLOTTE, N.C. — Carolina Panthers Pro Bowl defensive end Greg Hardy was found guilty Tuesday night of assaulting a female and communicating threats.

Mecklenburg County Judge Rebecca Thorn-Tin sentenced Hardy to 18 months’ probation. A 60-day jail sentence was suspended.

Hardy’s attorney Chris Fialko said he’ll appeal and Hardy has asked for a jury trial in superior court. In North Carolina, that means the terms of Hardy’s probation are on hold until the trial — so he’s free to travel with the team to training camp and compete in games.

A date for the jury trial hasn’t been set.

The Panthers released a statement Tuesday night saying, “We have just learned of the verdict and are respectful of the process. We do not have a comment at this time.”

Hardy and his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, refused to comment as they left the courtroom together.
