First person sentenced in Mobile steroid conspiracy case.

A pharmacist convicted of participating in a nationwide conspiracy to illegally sell anabolic steroids made in Mobile has been sentenced to four years in prison.

J. Michael Bennett, who was the supervising pharmacist at Applied Pharmacy Services, was the first to be sentenced from a group of five found guilty after a five-week trial earlier this year.

Authorities had alleged that pharmacists at APS illegally dispensed steroids and other drugs to doctors and steroid dealers between 2003 and 2006 in Arizona, California, Texas, Washington, Colorado, Louisiana, New York, New Jersey, South Carolina, Florida and elsewhere.

Prosecutors called 44-year-old Bennett and the others “drug dealers in lab coats.”
