Sam Hurd was sentenced Wednesday to 15 years after pleading guilty in April to one count of trying to buy and distribute large amounts of cocaine and marijuana. The charge carries a minimum 10-year sentence, but prosecutors may push for a sentence up to life.
His December 2011 arrest outside a suburban Chicago steakhouse came after he tried to buy a kilogram of cocaine in what turned out to be a sting. According to a federal complaint, Hurd told an undercover agent that he wanted 5 to 10 kilograms of cocaine and 1,000 pounds of marijuana per week to distribute in the Chicago area. He claimed he was already distributing 4 kilograms a week, according to the complaint. A kilogram is about 2.2 pounds.
@AP: BREAKING: Former NFL player Sam Hurd gets 15 years for role in drug-distribution scheme.
He got off the deal easy, I work in a federal prison. He could be like everyone else in jail and have 50 to LIFE for that charge. He should be happy.
