Months after the case against him was dismissed, domestic violence charges against former Carolina Panther Greg Hardy have been expunged.

Hardy filed paperwork in April asking for the charges against him to be expunged after the case was dismissed on the opening day of the trial in February.

Hardy had initially been charged with communicating threats and assault on a female in 2014 after an alleged incident inside his uptown Charlotte condo with former girlfriend Nicole Holder.

He was found guilty in a bench trial in 2014 and immediately appealed, asking for a jury trial.

On the opening day of the trial, a judge threw out the case when Holder, who was Hardy’s accuser, stopped cooperating with prosecutors.

Hardy’s attorney, Chris Fialko, confirmed that a Mecklenburg County district judge signed the expungement order this week and that Hardy’s charges have been expunged.

Hardy was signed by the Dallas Cowboys this year and is an active member of the team’s roster.
