Texas A&M Player Busted
I feel sorry for him. Probably fucked his career for good.
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) -- Texas A&M basketball player Andy Slocum will spend the summer in jail for steroid possession.
Slocum, a 7-foot, 265-pound A&M junior, was formally sentenced to 90 days in jail Thursday for two misdemeanor drug possession charges. He will begin serving his term on June 2.
"It appears you are being shown some leniency by the state," District Judge Rick Davis told Slocum of the plea agreement, which prosecutors said was adequate.
Slocum was arrested on Jan. 18 when police found a bag of syringes and vials in his truck. He as originally charged with third-degree felony steroid possession, which could have resulted in 10 years in prison.
Prosecutors later agreed to reduce the charges and Slocum was suspended indefinitely from the basketball team.
In addition to the jail time, Slocum will be placed on probation for a year, pay a $500 fine and perform 50 hours of community service.
"You are at a fork in the road," Davis said. "I fully expect you to reform your conduct. This is unacceptable."
Defense attorney Jim James said Slocum is a "wonderful kid" who he hopes "can get on with his life."
Back surgery kept Slocum off the court during the first seven games of the season this past season. He also missed the entire 2000-01 season because of a shoulder injury.

I knew that name sounded familiar. I played basketball against him when I was in high school. He played for West Monroe High School, one of our biggest high school rivals. That is just odd.
