The Mecklenburg County District Attorney’s Office in North Carolina has reported that Carolina Panthers’ defensive end Gregory Hardy will be appearing in appeals court soon for his domestic violence charge, according to wncn.com.
Hardy was sentenced to 18 months probation last July. He allegedly assaulted his ex-girlfriend and threatened to kill her on multiple occasions; the accuser cited this as the reason that she waited to go to authorities. A witness on the night of the incident in question says that she heard a woman being slammed against a wall and dragged across the floor. Hardy has now filed for an appeal and is expected in court February 9th.
