Balco Chemist Gets Prison Term

Published: August 5, 2006
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 4 (AP) — The chemist who created the clear, one of the previously undetectable steroids at the center of the Balco drug scandal, was sentenced Friday to three months in prison and three months of home confinement.

The chemist, Patrick Arnold, was the last of five defendants connected to the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative, a nutritional supplement company, who were convicted of dealing in illegal performance-enhancing drugs. He pleaded guilty in April to one count of conspiracy to distribute steroids.

“The behavior reflected here is destructive and damaging to Arnold, damaging to the community and damaging to the nation as a whole,” United States District Court Judge Susan Illston said.

Federal prosecutors declined to comment.

After his sentencing, Arnold said, “I’m very regretful for what I’ve done and especially since what it has precipitated in sports and society.”

Arnold and his Balco co-conspirators were tripped up when the track coach Trevor Graham anonymously mailed a syringe containing the clear to the United States Anti-Doping Agency in June 2003. With the drug in hand, scientists were able to create a test to detect it.

Federal agents raided Arnold’s lab in Champaign, Ill., last year. He was indicted in November on a charge of conspiring with Victor Conte Jr., Balco’s founder, to distribute the clear, which is also known as tetrahydragestrinone.

He should not do more than 60 days, maybe 45. The whole thing is a joke the guy got screwed.

What farce.

I hope 1000 companies spring up out of the wood work to take his place, Gear should be made legal and companies should spend R&D money to improve gear, anti-e’s and PCT.
