TNA star Jeff Hardy likely to be sentenced in drug case on Thursday

According to the Fayetteville Observer, the latest delay in Jeff Hardy's drug case is expected to be a short one.  Yesterday, the Judge James Webb was scheduled to hear the recommendation for Hardy's sentence (inpatient drug treatment or jail), but the courtroom was needed for a civil case.  Webb put the case on stand-by, with Hardy's case likely to be called back into court on Thursday.

Becky Carlson of Sentencing Services said in her initial opinion that Hardy's case is "borderline" as far as whether or not he should be going to rehab, which makes me think that she hadn't been paying attention to his recent issues at work and whatnot.  The latest "and whatnot" is him tazing his brother's girlfriend in a YouTube video that was quickly pulled as more people started to question their sanity.  In fairness, Carlson was still leaning towards a month of rehab for Hardy, which probably isn't close to enough for someone in severe denial who has refused treatment on multiple occasions, even when it meant losing his job.

For a timeline of Hardy's issues, you can check out my post from the day after TNA Victory Road in March, the show main evented by a clearly intoxicated Hardy (to the point that even Kurt Angle admitted it in an interview) screwing around for a minute before Sting forced him into a Scorpion Death Drop and shoot pin to end the debacle.
