Yuri Sucart Expected To Plead Guilty

Yuri Sucart, a cousin of Alex Rodriguez, is expected to plead guilty on charges of distributing performance enhancing drugs, according to records filed in Miami federal court.

In August 2014, Sucart was arrested along with six others, including Anthony Bosch, owner of the now-defunct Biogenesis anti-aging clinic in Florida that was at the center of a doping controversy that engulfed some of the most prominent stars of Major League Baseball. Court records also show that Bosch had been expected to testify against Yuri Sucart if the case had gone to trial. In February, Bosch was sentenced four years in prison after he pleaded guilty to conspiring to distribute testosterone.

Yuri Sucart procured performance-enhancing drugs for Alex and knows about his romances with many women, his zany legal strategies, and his drug use. Sucart is scheduled to face trial on April 6 in federal court on charges of conspiring to distribute testosterone and human growth hormone. Alex Rodriguez is expected to be called as a witness.

Yuri will become the eighth and final defendant (to plead guilty) who is associated with the notorious Biogenesis anti-aging clinic that provided performance enhancing drugs to Alex Rodriguez and other professional baseball players. In recent months, Yuri has been repeatedly hospitalized with blood clots and other ailments and a heart condition. Prosecutors will ask U.S. District Court Judge Cecilia Altonaga to sentence Sucart to eight months in prison while Sucart’s lawyer, Ed O’Donnell, will seek four months of house arrest for Yuri, citing poor health in recent months.

Sucart remains the only defendant not to have pleaded guilty but it is widely believed that he may change his not-guilty plea during a court hearing in the U.S. Southern District of Florida. Yuri Sucart is charged with conspiring to distribute Testosterone and five counts of distributing testosterone, which are punishable by a total of 20 years in prison. According to court records, the lawyers of Sucart have threatened to disclose that Sucart was the “steroid mule” of Alex Rodriguez, the American professional baseball third baseman and shortstop for the New York Yankees of Major League Baseball.

Yuri Sucart’s wife, Carmen Sucart, has remarked the secrets of Rodriguez will be exposed in court. Previously, Carmen had disclosed that Alex Rodriguez came to their home in the spring of 2012 and asked them to sign a confidentiality agreement in exchange for $50,000 and an apartment. Carmen added that they declined the deal and Rodriguez peed on the wall. Carmen also reiterated her disdain for the baseball star and questioned her motives after A-Rod apologized for his disastrous effort to escape a season-long doping ban. Carmen said the letter to the fans is a lie and added the reckless campaign of Rodriguez and his denials, legal warfare, and finger-pointing had wrought destruction upon her family. She vowed that truth will prevail if the attorney of his husband gets to cross-examine Alex before a jury and audience at the Miami courtroom of U.S. District Court Judge Cecilia Altonaga.

Recently, Rodriguez, known as “A-Rod,” made a return to the field for the New York Yankees for spring training in Tampa after he was suspended by the MBL for the entire 2014 season over the Biogenesis doping scandal.

Clad in red, white, and blue uniform he was starting anew with the Dominican Republic team. He brought along with him his ex-wife Cynthia, Natasha his eldest daughter and 10-month old baby, Ella. Like a scene out of a reality TV show, Rodriguez giving the public a glimpse of his private life.

Fresh from Sunday’s meeting with the Major League Baseball Officials on the steroid scandal, the spotlight remain focused on Rodriguez. So far he is the most interesting player in the World Baseball Classics.

Another personality in the steroids case is Angel Presinal, former trainer of the Dominican Republic Team. He has been banned from working with the team because he allegedly supplied steroids to the players.

The Dominicans did not make a big deal about the issues surrounding Rodriguez’s involvement with steroids. Alex commented that he felt more comfortable playing on the field where he could concentrate on the game and not on the drugs. The team’s goal now goal is to win in the WBC.

a-rod-face-mlb-in-2-hour-meetThe press release from the commissioner’s office described the Yankees star, Alex Rodriguez, as “cooperative” after when he faced the officials from the Major League Baseball Department of Investigations and Labor Relations in Tampa, Florida last Sunday.

An anonymous source revealed that the inquiry was not focused on Rodriguez but about his cousin, Yuri Sucart and Angel Presinal, the Dominican trainer who is being slammed for allegedly supplying the anabolic steroids. It was Sucart who was named to have purportedly injected A-Rod with the drugs. It was not clear, however, if A-Rod was able to provide the information MLB needed for additional leads into their investigation. Nevertheless, according to the source, this should not be a cause for Presinal to believe that he’s off the hook since other players he was associated with are yet to be interviewed. No other details were divulged.

Also present at the meeting were Rodriguez’s lawyers, Jay Reisinger and James E. Sharp. The MLB officials who questioned Rodriguez were Michael Weiner, union general council, Dan Mullin, vice president for investigations, Rob Manfred, executive vice president for labor relations, and Dan Halem, senior vice president and general counsel for labor.

Instead of a career meltdown, A-Rod’s confession of his involvement with PEDs coupled with his decision to shift from the U.S. team to the Dominican team made him a more interesting personality. He didn’t allow the issue to affect his performance on the field. According to Joe Girardi in the NY Daily News, “I think he’s coming through really well…We’re playing games now, which we all know he loves to do, he’s able to free his mind of it for a time.” Girardi also expects the D.R. team to take care of the Yankees superstar as they have supported him during this steroid mayhem.

  A-ROD’S “COUSIN” IDENTIFIED

a-rods-cousin-identifiedDuring his first media appearance after he had admitted to steroid use, Alex Rodriguez managed to reveal the person who had provided him with the drugs from 2001 to 2003. He mentioned a mysterious “cousin” who was the one providing him with Primobolan and was also the one injecting him with the steroids. This person is Yuri Sucart from Dominican Republic who is also one of Rodriguez’s friends. The identity of Sucart was first revealed in ESPN.com and Carmen Sucart, his wife, confirmed the claim. She said that her husband gave “boli” to the athlete. That was the street name for Primobolan, a highly effective and heavy anabolic steroid.

While some question Rodriguez’s intentions for sharing the blame with Sucart, some are more worried about the issue that anabolic steroids might have been smuggled from the Dominican Republic to the United States. If this were the case, it would prove to be a bigger scandal for both Rodriguez and Sucart. Fortunately, Primobolan and other performance enhancing drugs are rather easy to acquire in the Southern country and DEA agents don’t plan on prosecuting either Rodriguez or Sucart for this issue or for the issue of using anabolic steroids.
