(WSCR) Last week, reports circulated that former Bears wide receiver Sam Hurd had pleaded guilty to federal drug charges.

Now, however, his attorney is saying those reports were premature.

According to paperwork filed Tuesday, Hurd pleaded guilty to a federal drug charge, but his lawyer later said that the documents had been filed “prematurely” by the government with inaccurate information.

Court documents indicate Hurd pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute at least 5 kilograms of cocaine, meaning he would face at least 10 years in prison.

Hurd’s attorney, Jay Ethington, described those documents as, “in effect, draft documents,” adding, “The court documents appear that they will be withdrawn. The language in those documents had not been agreed to.”
