My opinion: You let him play! He has not been convicted. What I remember was hardy had a good defense vs that chick and it was a" he said she said" case but the judge charged him any ways? Am I right? I would understand if there's video or something. Play him and wait for the verdict!

This case should have been thrown out of court but the woman judge did not have enough balls (no pun intended) to do the right thing because she was afraid of the back lash she would receive.
