A Vian man was sentenced to federal prison on two of three of the charges against him, according to a media release from the United States Attorney’s Office.
Bobby Brown, 38, was sentenced to 24 months imprisonment, followed by 48 months of supervised release after having been found guilty by a federal jury.
Brown also had been indicted on a count of distributing or manufacturing in or near schools, but the jury was unable to find him guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
The evidence included proof that the defendant distributed anabolic steroids to two persons under age 21 and others.
The trial testimony established that several steroid recipients were Vian High School football players. The time frame for the steroid felony distribution was from about March 2006 through about June 2008.
