Guy Lewis, the attorney for Anthony Bosch reported that he would enter plea the following month. “My client will continue to co-operate with the ongoing federal investigation that includes several associated of Alex Rodriguez’s inner circle of the Yankees.” Lewis told reporters.
Rumors of the Biogenesis founder, Anthony Bosch selling PEDs or Performance Enhancing Drugs to prominent Major League Baseball players like Alex Rodriguez had been around for some time until further investigation shed light to the truth of the matter. Bosch has been charged with a testosterone distribution conspiracy and a 10 year imprisonment term. Members featuring prominently in Alex Rodriguez’s inner circle include his cousin Yuri Sucart and Jorge Velazquez, who supposedly is a close associate.
The hearing will take place in October before Gayles, and although there is no proper schedule for the trial, he said on Wednesday that it would be in about a month’s time at the Miami federal court. “Tony will continue his full cooperation, all that is required is a resolution which is negotiated with the government,” said Lewis as reported by the Daily News.
Bosch played safe and turned himself in to federal agents after there had been a series of arrests of other defendants on 5, August, 2014. Although Bosch has charged with the conspiracy of distributing testosterone, his sentence could drastically reduce with his cooperation with the federal government. “The cases against the other defendants need to be sorted first and the prosecutors until then will not recommend a sentencing, and that process could very well take up a few years. What the sentence will be is too difficult to say right now. The authorities will also assess the cooperation from the part of my client in this regard,” Guy Lewis was heard stating.
