As we reported earlier today here on eWn, AEW star Jeff Hardy has entered a not guilty plea on his charges of felony DUI and more.
While the not guilty plea was expected and was entered on June 28th, it was done in written form. Hardy also waived the right to an arraignment as well as being present for any pre-trial conferences. This is likely because he’s currently in an in-patient rehab facility.
The filing notes:
“Defendant, Jeffrey Nero Hardy, pursuant to rules 3.160(a), Florida Rules of Criminal Procedure, waives arraignment by filing this written plea of not guilty. Albritton v. White, 948 So. 2d 852, 854 (Fla. 2d DCA 2007). Defendant further waives the right to be present at all pretrial conferences”
So while Hardy had an arraignment hearing set for July 5th, that will no longer be taking place.
