DALLAS, April 10 (UPI) -- Former Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears receiver Sam Hurd agreed to plead guilty to cocaine and marijuana trafficking charges, his lawyer said Wednesday.
Lawyer Mike McCrum said Hurd would plead guilty, prior to a trial set to begin next week in Dallas, to a charge of conspiracy with intent to distribute cocaine, a plea without an agreed-upon sentence.
The charge carries a sentence of 10 years to life in a federal prison.
Hurd was first arrested in 2011, accused of agreeing to buy cocaine from an undercover agent in Chicago. He was re-arrested last year when his bond was revoked over two failed drug tests, the San Antonio (Texas) Express-News reported.
