Sam Hurd Indicted On Federal Drug Charges

Sam Hurd was officially indicted on federal drug conspiracy and possession charges Wednesday, following his arrest last month in a drug sting that caught him allegedly orchestrating a drug deal from North Texas to distribute in Chicago. If found guilty, Hurd could face anywhere from 10 years to life in prison on the conspiracy charges. He faces up to 40 years for possession.

Hurd reportedly tried to purchase a kilogram of cocaine from an undercover agent on Dec. 14, outside of a Chicago steakhouse . Two days later he was released from the Bears. Hurd allegedly had plans to purchase 1,000 pounds of marijuana and several kilos of cocaine. A Chicago radio station claimed that Hurd had several current NFL players as clients, though that report has been disputed.
