Once an NFL wide receiver and local hero with a $5 million contract, Sam Hurd was reduced to being a convicted felon in orange jail scrubs pleading with a judge to avoid spending the rest of his life in prison.
Former Dallas Cowboys’ wide receiver Sam Hurd will finally find out his fate in federal court Wednesday afternoon. Hurd pleaded guilty to drug trafficking back in April and now faces life in prison.
Hurd is scheduled to be sentenced Wednesday 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.
