Next week, former Cowboys and Bears receiver Sam Hurd will be arraigned on federal drug charges. Not surprisingly, he’ll plead not guilty.
Hurd’s lawyer recently told Tom Orsborn of the San Antonio Express-News that Hurd plans to advance several theories in support of his innocence.
“We look forward to commencing litigation,” attorney David Kenner told Orsborn. “We look forward to presenting a vigorous defense.”
Hurd allegedly received, with intent to sell, a kilogram of cocaine from an undercover agent and a confidential informant in December 2011. He allegedly claimed that he already had been selling four kilograms of cocaine per week, a charge that has not been otherwise substantiated via media reports.
The Bears cut ties with Hurd not long after his arrest. He was formally indicted earlier this month.
