Gregory Hardy Pleads Guilty To Disclosing Existence

Montgomery Banker, Charles Gregory Hardy Pleads Guilty To Disclosing Existence Of Grand Jury Subpoena

Montgomery, AL (STL.News) On Thursday, May 13, 2021, Charles Gregory Hardy, Jr., 37, of Montgomery, Alabama, appeared in federal court and pleaded guilty to one count of obstructing a criminal investigation as an officer of a financial institution, announced Acting United States Attorney Sandra J. Stewart.

According to court documents, during the spring of 2020, Hardy was an employee of Valley National Bank.  In April of that year, the bank received a grand jury subpoena from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) seeking records pertaining to the accounts of one of the bank’s customers.

Grand jury subpoenas are confidential documents and bank employees are, in most cases, prohibited by federal law from disclosing a subpoena’s existence to the customer whose records are being sought.

As a bank employee, Hardy learned about the subpoena.  Afterwards, Hardy sent a text message to the customer named in the subpoena that read, “I got a subpoena for your financial records.” A few days later, Hardy went to the customer’s office and, while there, sent a photo of a part of the grand jury subpoena from his personal telephone to the customer.
