You’ll recall that Anthony Bosch was arrested and charged with conspiracy to distribute steroids last month.The Daily News reports that he’ll plead guilty next month, but that we may not know his sentence for a while:

Bosch was charged with conspiracy to distribute testosterone, and faces up to 10 years in prison, although his sentence could be drastically reduced as a result of his cooperation with investigators. Lewis said prosecutors will not make a sentencing recommendation until the cases against the other defendants are wrapped up, a process that could take several years.

 

Multiple other parties were arrested. Some have pleaded not guilty so, yes, it’s going to be a while. I presume Bosch will be a witness in their cases. Which, again, seems rather nuts to me. By all accounts he was the top of this distribution chain yet, once again, he’s going to be the guy getting the light treatment compared to the smaller fish. Drug users, like A-Rod. Distributors down the line from him, like┬ásports trainers and coaches who gave athletes his wares.

Not a bad result if you’re a drug dealer who gets arrested.

      Are you incapable of reading comprehension?

        Can you not remember what Craig wrote just a day ago? http://hardballtalk.nbcsports.com/2014/09/03/bring-back-steroids/

        Sometimes this SocraticDude makes sense.
        And then other times..it’s posts like this.

        Jesus H. Christ on a pogostick, you are either the dumbest mouthbreather we’ve seen on these boards or you are so burned that Craig didn’t give you a special shout-out for having the same email alerts HBT does that you’ve resorted to deliberately lying about what he’s said. “Bring back steroids” is a sarcastic comment on the total lack of offense in games ongoing at that time and the lower run-scoring era in general. Further, this post is a commentary on how baseball has managed to warp the traditional drug-enforcement norms of pleading out the users to get the dealers, who are indeed the greater cause of harm both within the game and within society. Go away, you pathetic little troll.

        And, one sarcastic turn doesn’t deserve another, Kevin?

        BTW, were you able to spell “mouthbreather” without a dictionary? :)

        There was no sarcasm in what you said, but hey, spin away there.

      • SocraticGadfly - Sep 4, 2014 at 4:30 PM

        So, you’re a mind-reader now? Spin away there.

      • Kevin S. - Sep 4, 2014 at 6:01 PM

        Not a mind-reader, just capable of adding in the context of your whine fest over the past couple of days.

        But on the technically non-zero chance that was supposed to be sarcasm, it sucked so much it was unrecognizable as such.

      By the way, thanks for breaking that Bo Porter story!

    As usual, the Daily Farce only gives a partial story. Bosch is charged with multiple counts of crimes including distribution of PED to minors. Reportedly he is going to plead guilty to only one count of charge.

    What about the other crimes he is accused of?
