Panthers DE Hardy's Jury Trial Set For Nov. 17th

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Panthers franchise player Greg Hardy entered a not guilty plea at an arraignment hearing and his jury trial has been set for Nov. 17, according to his attorney Chris Fialko.

The Pro Bowl defensive end is appealing a July 15 conviction on misdemeanor charges of assaulting a female and communicating threats.

The trial date is scheduled during Carolina's bye week. Carolina hosts Atlanta on Nov. 16.

However, Fialko issued a statement Monday saying he believes the trial will be pushed back.

Fialko says the state "will try much older cases at the November date, and we will be assigned a jury trial date in 2015 once that master court calendar is published. I do not think this district attorney will leapfrog Mr. Hardy's case over the many other older ones."
