US Seeks Sentencing Cut for Baseball Drug Clinic Owner
Federal prosecutors want the prison sentence being served by the former owner of a clinic that supplied baseball players including New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez with banned materials to be reduced by more than a year by a Miami judge.
The Miami U.S. solicitor’s office mentions Bosch’s wide-ranging co-operation for the request, which amounts to about one third off.
Bosch ran the now-closed Biogenesis of America practice in Coral Gables, taking a huge number of dollars for restricted materials used other players and by Rodriguez. Bosch pleaded guilty to conspiracy. Seven other individuals acknowledged functions in the operation.
Rodriguez served a season-long suspension but resumed his Yankees career this past year.
