Dr. Anthony Galea, a Canadian HGH disciple who allegedly smuggled the drug into the U.S., will enter a guilty plea next week, according to Phil Fairbanks of the Buffalo News.
Galea is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday, July 6.
His patients have included multiple pro athletes, including golfer Tiger Woods and Redskins receiver Santana Moss.
The specific charges to which Galea will plead guilty aren’t yet known. It’s also not known whether he will identify specific athletes to whom HGH or other illegal substances were supplied.
Usually, the justice system attempts to move upstream in cases involving illegal drugs. In this case, however, the potential impact of outing pro athletes upon the ongoing use of such substances could justify an attempt to squeeze the supplier into ratting out his customers.
