The ASSOCIATED PRESS reports that Marion Jones was sentenced to six months in prison today. Ironically, prosecutors weren’t all that aggressive in seeking the max amount of jail time for the performance-enhanced, now-former Olympic gold medalist. But U.S. District Judge Kenneth Karas dropped the hammer on Jones anway, who we’re sure you remember previously crying outside the courthouse.
Excerpt: “In October, Jones told the judge that she lied to a federal investigator in November 2003 when she denied using performance enhancing drugs. She said she took steroids ’several times before the Sydney Olympics and continued using it after.’ She also admitted lying about her knowledge of the involvement of Tim Montgomery, the father of her son Monty, in a scheme to cash millions of dollars worth of stolen or forged checks.” What a debacle. But amazingly, it’s not her worst case of bad judgement.
What do you suppose the sentence is for marrying someone who looks like Mo Vaughn?
