Man, this is a sad story. Former NFL Wide Receiver, Sam Hurd, has been sentenced to 15 years in prison stemming from an arrest in December of 2011. Hurd has been in jail since June of last year waiting to hear his fate, and he finally got it yesterday. He is charged with attempting to purchase and distribute large quantities of cocaine and marijuana. We hate to see stuff like this.
Uh oh… more drug stories. According to The Chicago Tribune, Bears receiver Sam Hurd accepted a kilogram of cocaine from a confidential informant and an undercover agent posing as a drug supplier. Hurd was charged with conspiring to purchase a kilo of cocaine with intent to distribute. At the Wednesday night meeting Hurd had set up to buy anywhere from 1 to 5 kilos of cocaine and 1,000 pound of marijuana for distribution in the Chicago area. The Bears issued this statement about the incident.
“We are aware of Sam’s arrest and are continuing to gather details surrounding it. We are disappointed whenever these circumstances arise. We will deal with them appropriately once we have all the information.”
