SHOOLTZ CAUGHT FOR DISTRIBUTION OF STEROIDSPossession of steroids is considered a criminal offense. If caught you can face jail term and possibly pay fines. That is what happened to Ryan Shooltz, 25, who was caught in the distribution of anabolic steroids. Police found steroids and human growth hormones in his apartment. He admitted being guilty as charged and was ordered by US Judge Michael J. Ponsor to pay $10,000 and remain three years in probation. Shooltz was also sentenced to three hundred hours of community service. Ponsor also added that this would humble Shooltz saying that the defendant might have to report even on Saturdays and serve for 8 hours in the next 3 years.

US Attorney Kevin O’Regan requested that Shootlz should serve at a federal halfway house because distribution of steroids is a serious crime and therefore should have heavy punishment as well.

Shooltz earned about $10,000 to $15,000 for distributing steroids, according to Thomas Lesser, Defense Attorney. According to The Republican, statistics show that 17,000 have died for abuse of painkillers and cocaine use. O’Regan said that steroid rings exist because of greed, not because many wanted to use the illegal substances. The use of steroids is not to buff up the body but because of money.

  FORMER STEROID DEALER ASKING FOR A SECOND CHANCE

underground-steroidRyan Shooltz, a 25-year old ex-steroid dealer, was given a chance to resubmit letters of support for his cause. He is hoping that U.S District Judge Michael Ponsor would give him a lighter sentence in consideration of his changed lifestyle since an incident indicting him several years ago. In 2004, one of Shooltz’s friends died of methadone overdose in the defendant’s Amherst apartment. They had to call in police at that and the officers found several doses of anabolic steroids, human growth hormone, vitamins and unknown pills in the scene of the crime. Since then, it was considered that Shooltz and his friends were planning to distribute the drugs illegally.

Shooltz pleaded guilty last October but is hoping that Ponsor would also look at the fact that he has reinvented himself since the incident. He has a lucrative job as a salesman, his own apartment and even a long-term girlfriend. At present, Ponsor is considering to give him a sentence of 6 months in community confinement and the judge also noted that Lesser has not submitted letters of support for Shooltz. Thomas Lesser of the defense said that he didn’t think it was needed. Even if Ponsor admitted to rarely giving second chances to gather support for defendants, he told defense to compile as much for Shooltz’s hearing so that he can review the files before the sentencing on late February.
