Hardin was also convicted of manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance in 2008. Had a motion to revoke in 2009 for another drug charge. Then in 2010 Hardin was sentenced to prison for manufacturing and delivery of MDMA and was sentenced to 12 years in prison. 

Hardin will now more than likely face enhanced charges due to his past drug offenses.

Why use "Lake View" when naming this article?  Are you trying to insinuate that he was only a drug dealer in a certain part of town?  San Angelo is the city which he resides.  Stop trying to create even more division in our city by labeling someone northside.
