Lawyer says ex-Bear is a “marijuana freak”
Former Chicago Bear Sam Hurd is expected to plead guilty on Thursday in his federal drug case.
Lawyer Jay Ethington said of Hurd, “He’s a marijuana freak. He loves marijuana. He’s addicted to high grade marijuana.”
But Ethington denies Hurd deals marijuana, “Sell? No. Share with his friends? Yes.”
The former Bears receiver is currently incarcerated on charges of drug conspiracy, accused of conspiring to possess with the intent to distribute cocaine and marijuana.
Hurd faces at least 10 years and up to life in prison, as well as $10 million in fines.
