Supreme Court of Kentucky denies appeal request for man sentenced to 20 years
The Supreme Court of Kentucky has sided with the Warren Circuit Court in a decision to deny Michael Drew Hardy's request for an appeal.
In 2016, Hardy was found guilty of wanton murder, criminal mischief, DUI, and three counts of wanton endangerment in the 2014 death of Jeremy Pryor.
Hardy was sentenced to 20 years in prison.
Hardy asked for an appeal on the exclusion of the victim's toxicology report, selective prosecution claim -- saying the Commonwealth didn't offer him a plea deal, and on his recorded statement after the initial wreck, asking the officer, "So what's that mean for me?"
Hardy lost his appeal on all three points.
