Ryan DeLuca put $20,000 down in 1999 for purchasing a web domain called Bodybuilding.com that went on to become a popular website.

“It’s so cool to be able to start something like this,” DeLuca said when he was just 23 in 2001.

“Mr. DeLuca is strictly liable for misdemeanor violations of the FDA law,” his attorney John Lundquist said. “He wants to put this matter behind himself and continue to move the company forward.”
