The jury trial for Carolina Panthers’ Greg Hardy has been pushed back until 2015. An exact date has not been set. The defensive end was convicted of domestic violence related charges back in July. Hardy’s appeal was canceled for a jury trial on November 17th. The charges stem from an altercation between he and ex-girlfriend, Nicole Harder.
A spokesperson for the Mecklenburg County District Attorney’s Office says, “The decision was made today to continue Greg Hardy’s trial to early 2015. An exact date has not yet been set. The State is currently trying a capital murder case, which began on Sept. 16 and is expected to continue at least through the end of this month.”
Hardy is unlikely to play for the remainder of 2014.
