Anthony Bosch gets 4-year prison sentence

A federal judge in Miami sentenced Anthony “Tony” Bosch to four years in prison Tuesday. The owner of Biogenesis of America clinic in Coral Gables was at the forefront of Major League Baseball’s biggest performance-enhancing drug scandal. He plead guilty to conspiracy to distribute testosterone — which according to sentencing guidelines has a minimum of three years in prison and a maximum of 10. U.S. District Judge Darrin Gayles also sentenced Bosch, 51, to three years of supervised release. He had been out on a $100,000 bond. Bosch’s clinic closed in 2012, after years of providing professional athletes and high school students with enhancing drugs such as testosterone and human growth hormones. While providing information to Drug Enforcement Administration and the MLB, Bosch gained a lot of enemies. Among them is Alexander “A-Rod” Rodriguez, who is returning from a season-long suspension and will be reporting to full-squad workout Feb. 26 in hopes of getting his job back as a third baseman for the New York Yankees. Sharad Motiani and Pat Sullivan were the federal prosecutors in the case. Gayles sentenced Bosch’s former business associate Carlos Acevedo, 36, to 42 months in prison for conspiracy to distribute testosterone and “Molly.” The sentencing guidelines pointed to 30 years.

William Hahne pleads not guilty to sending drug-laced postcards to inmates

Postcards arriving at the main Broward County jail in Fort Lauderdale contained more than artistic cartoon drawings. Federal prosecutors said the postcards were laced with a hallucinogenic drug. They said inmates paid $10 for a tiny piece of card, which they put in their mouths to absorb the drug. Two inmates pleaded guilty last week to federal drug charges. William Hahne, 56, pleaded not guilty to possessing and distributing the drug, which has similar effects as LSD. Prosecutors said Hahne mailed the cards to Gregory Golden, 41, and Dean Aubol, 35. Jail officials started investigating in August after being tipped by an inmate, Hahne’s attorney said he’s undergoing a psychiatric evaluation at Miami’s Federal Detention Center.
