Defendant Receives 12-Month Sentence for Steroids Conspiracy
United States Attorney Kenyen R. Brown of the Southern District of Alabama announced that Thomas Daniel Williams, 44, of Orange Beach, Alabama was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Kristi K. DuBose to 6 months’ imprisonment followed by 6 months home confinement for conspiring to distribute steroids. The judge ordered that Williams undergo three years of supervised release upon completing his term of imprisonment, that he receive drug and anger management treatment while incarcerated, and that he pay a $100 mandatory special assessment.
On July 1, 2015, Williams was arrested on a federal criminal complaint alleging that Williams had unlawfully bought, used, and sold anabolic steroids, human growth hormone, and cocaine. The complaint’s affidavit alleged that Williams imported certain substances from China and that he was previously recorded selling steroids to a confidential human source. The affidavit also noted that in September 2014, the government had executed a search warrant at Williams’s home and found steroids and other incriminating evidence. On July 30, 2015, Williams was indicted by a federal grand jury on 17 counts of various drug-related offenses. On September 22, 2015, Williams pled guilty to 1 count of conspiring to distribute steroids.
The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Gregory Bordenkircher and Sinan Kalayoglu.
