The former Queenstown bodybuilder jointly charged with importing steroids into New Zealand has been sentenced in the Waitakere District Court to community work.
Andrew van Lent, 24, appeared before Judge Robert Kerr for sentence on a raft of steroid-related charges yesterday.
He and another man, former Invercargill bodybuilder Marc William Rainbow, were jointly charged with importing 1524 steroids in capsules, pills, powder and liquid form through their business SSIS Pharmaceuticals.
Rainbow is defending his charges on May 10.
van Lent was sentenced to 225 hours’ community work, ordered to pay $7000 reparation and an order was made for the forfeiture of all medicines and paraphernalia.
