Hardy charge now felony (UPDATE)

The Washington Post has reported that Kings assistant coach Mark Hardy has been charged with fourth-degree sexual abuse for an alleged incident with his adult daughter at a Washington, D.C., hotel early this morning. According to the paper, “The victim told police that she and her father were `very intoxicated,’ and after she had changed her clothes, got into bed and fell asleep, she was awakened by her father laying next to her and touching her inappropriately, according to documents filed late Friday in D.C. Superior Court. After first denying that anything happened, Hardy apologized to his daughter, the court papers said. She then ran from the room to the front desk for help.” Hardy appeared before a judge today and was released, with his next court date scheduled for June 4.
