Greg Hardy

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Panthers’ defensive end Greg Hard was found guilty of assault on a female and communicating threats Tuesday night, according to WSOC.

The judge dismissed a sentence of 60 days in jail for Hardy and instead sentenced him to 18 months of supervised probation.

Hardy has appealed the verdict, according to Charlotte Observer Panthers beat writer Joe Person. It could be six months to a year before Hardy gets his jury trial.

Under the terms of Hardy’s probation, Hardy is not allowed to have contact with Nicole Holder. The judge also banned Hardy from going to Suite nightclub while Holder is working. Additionally, Hardy is allowed to travel while on probation but cannot have any guns in his possession.

The probation sentence is on hold since an appeal has been submitted.

Hardy’s sentence can be shortened with the completion of a court-ordered program, Person reported.

A Panthers spokesperson said, “We just learned of the verdict and are respectful of the process. We will not have a comment at this time.”

Hardy had no comment on the verdict.

      Bo Diddley – Sinner 3 – Looky – and all the other names you post under I will assume you post under my name because you are a coward. The only power you have in life is posting nasty comments here under my name. You need to get out of Mm’s basement and get a life. We all now how pathetic you are. Loser!

      @Popeye.Hardy grew up a Navy kid with both parents serving. He attended private schools until he got recruited to Ole Miss,where he graduated with Honor’s. His guns where purchased legally. What’s your definition of “thug?”

        WeBuiltThisCountry – He may be all that in the past but he beat a woman and threatened her. That now makes him nothing better than a street thug.

    Oh gee bet the Panthers are so relieved he only got probation so that he doesn’t miss playing. Maybe they can find and sign a few more just like him and they can travel in a pack and beat up a few more women. Such a positive role model!!!

      Are you implying that the Panther’s organization is criminal based???? De’Angelo Williams started the Wear Pink theme in the league,witch raised millions for breast cancer, Can Newton won a award for most community service in the NFL.Creg Olsen goes to Mecklenburg County medical to spend time with the children in pediatric almost every weekend.#CAROLINAPRIDE

        Not implying that the others on the team whose good deeds in the community be overshadowed by his poor actions but let’s not forget the lessons learned a few years ago from the Rae Carruthers incident. Panthers ought to be done with Hardy in my opinion.

    Lets see what happens when he violates his probation once the season starts!!!! Then he better get jail time!
