Jeff Hardy Update: Not Talking to Anybody & Living In Seclusion
Gilbert Hardy, father of Matt and Jeff, spoke to the Fayetteville Observer newspaper last week and said Jeff has been keeping a very low profile in the weeks and months since his September 11th drug arrest. “He won’t talk. He ain’t talking to nobody,” the senior Hardy said. “He doesn’t even want to talk to me.”
The newspaper tried getting a quote from Jeff, but he refused to speak to them.
Hardy was due in court last week for a probable cause hearing to determine whether there is enough evidence to warrant indicting the former WWE champion on the various drug charges (including six felonies) he’s facing. The hearing was rescheduled for December 2nd.
If convicted of the opium trafficking charge alone, Hardy faces nearly six years in prison, at a minimum, said Warren McSweeney, a Moore County prosecutor. “It could be substantially more,” he added.
In his latest blog over at JRsBarBQ.com, Jim Ross commented on the news of Hardy keeping quiet by saying, “Smart move by Jeff Hardy keeping mum and not talking to any of the media. Jeff must have a helluva lawyer.”
