A man indicted for providing steroids to professional athletes received a sentence of one year and a day in prison. The Alabama pharmacy was part of the investigation of a Phoenix naturopath who supposedly treated the athletes. A New York Criminal Lawyer reports that the accused man fled to Costa Rica.
The man had originally been interviewed on radio stations praising the therapeutic benefits of steroids. However, once he was in front of a judge, he admitted that he wished he had not made the statements. According to sources, the judge indicated that the man be allowed to serve his sentence in a halfway house.
The naturopath admitted to prescribing steroids, human growth hormone and other drugs to patients who didn’t need them for a medical reason. In 2006 the Mobile Alabama pharmacy was raided and became known as Operation Which Doctor.The drugs were distributed via an illegal Internet ring.
