The Charlotte Observer is reporting that Jeff Hardy could face anywhere from 3 to 14 years in prison if convicted of opium trafficking, which is one of several charges that came with Hardy’s recent arrest.
Unlike other charges, the opium trafficking charge carries a mandatory prison sentence, which means if Hardy is convicted the judge could not sentence him to anything less than 3 years, but could sentence him to anything up to 14 years.
Chief Deputy Neil Godfrey of The Moore Country Sheriff’s Office said that the investigation is still being conducted, and that more charges could come Hardy’s way if any other laws appear to have been broken.
