Hardy also falsified his 2008 through 2010 returns by not reporting more than $400,000 in cash income his law practice received.

U.S. District Court Judge Miranda M. Du scheduled sentencing for Jan. 12, 2018.

Hardy faces a statutory maximum sentence of three years in prison for each count of filing a false return and obstructing the internal revenue laws. He also faces a period of supervised release, restitution, and monetary penalties.
