The attorney for a well-known
Columbia radio and television personality
entered a conditional discharge plea in court Thursday on her behalf, according
Conditions of the plea include having to take two random urine drug tests that test negative, said Todd Rutherford, Cynthia Hardy's attorney.
Hardy was charged with possession of marijuana after Richland County Sheriff's deputies say they found marijuana in her purse as it was searched upon her entry into the South Carolina State Fair in October.
Hardy said the marijuana came from teenagers at an activity she attended.
"As I have previously stated, I retrieved the marijuana after a weekend of activity with several young people who are very dear to me," she said. "I tossed it in my bag with the intent to speak to them about it. Instead I got busy, forgot about it, and neglected to properly dispose of it."
