TNA star Jeff Hardy pleaded guilty to three felony drug charges in a Moore County, N.C. courtroom on Thursday. Hardy pleaded guilty to two counts of intent to distribute a controlled substance, and one count of conspiracy to traffic in a compound containing opium.

Hardy was sentenced to serve ten days in jail and a $100,000 fine. He was also sentenced to 30 months probation, and could serve additional jail time if he violates the terms of his probation.

Powell's POV: It appears that the other charges that Hardy was facing were dropped. It does not appear that he will begin serving his jail time immediately. Chris Shore is at the courthouse and the word going around was that Hardy and his probation officer will likely work together to schedule the jail time. Shore is still at the courthouse and may have additional updates.
