Sentenced, Sentenced, Sentenced!

January 11, 2008

When we last visited with Ms. Marion Jones, she was in the dock for lying to investigators about sports doping. Well, she just got 6 months in jail to start March 11.

Kids, use drugs…

After long denying she ever had used performance-enhancing drugs, Jones admitted last October she lied to federal investigators in November 2003, acknowledging she took the designer steroid “the clear” from September 2000 to July 2001. “The clear” has been linked to BALCO, the lab at the center of the steroids scandal in professional sports.

She took EPO, human growth hormone and THG using drops and injections, according to the court documents that show use in 2000 and 2001.

…win a whole bunch of medals…

Jones returned her Olympic medals — golds in the 100 meters, 200 meters and 1,600-meter relay and bronzes in the long jump and 400-meter relay — even before the International Olympic Committee ordered her to do so and wiped her results from the books.

..hang around loser boyfriends…

She also admitted lying about her knowledge of the involvement of Tim Montgomery, the father of her older son Monty, in a scheme to cash millions of dollars worth of stolen or forged checks. Montgomery and several others have been convicted in that scam.

…and you will pay the price my friends!

U.S. District Judge Kenneth Karas said he gave her the maximum under the plea deal … The 31-year-old Jones also was given two years’ probation and supervised release, during which she will be required to perform 800 hours of community service
