Jeff Hardy’s court case on drug possession charges was postponed again today after his lawyer asked for time to have a drug treatment assessment done.
Jim Van Camp told Senior Resident Judge James Webb this was only an option under consideration.
“There has been no assessment yet,” Van Camp said. “Becky Carlson … needs some time.”
Carlson, the district administrator for the 19-B J.D. Sentencing Services Program, will form her own judgement as to whether Hardy needs drug dependent therapy, get another view from an expert and recommend a treatment plan. She said “that takes time.”
The case has been continued until June 27.
On September 11, 2009 Hardy was arrested on charges of trafficking in controlled prescription pills and possession of anabolic steroids, after a search of his house yielded 262 Vicodin prescription pills, 180 soma prescription pills, 555 milliliters of anabolic steroids, a residual amount of powder cocaine, and drug paraphernalia. A Moore County grand jury later indicted Hardy.
The cases against Hardy have been continued several times, including three times this year. He has remained free on bail pending his day in court.
