MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - A federal judge has sentenced a doctor who
cooperated with drug investigators in Mobile in a steroids probe to a year of probation.
The Press-Register newspaper reports that 55-year-old Scott A. Corliss of Greeley, Colo., was sentenced Friday.
Corliss pleaded guilty in January 2008 to withholding information about a conspiracy to write prescriptions for anabolic steroids and other performance-enhancing substances.
His guilty plea led to criminal charges against several others in the investigation of Mobile-based Applied Pharmacy Services. A prosecutor had asked for leniency on his behalf.
Prosecutors said they reached out to Corliss first because they
believed he was the least guilty in the conspiracy.
As part of his plea bargain, Corliss forfeited $12,000.
