THE STEROID LAW PRACTICE OF J. CLARK BAIRD
J. Clark Baird knows STEROIDS.
Performance enhancing drugs and anabolic/androgenic steroids are not like street drugs, and many of them can be obtained and used legally. That’s how these cases differ from typical drug “possession” or “trafficking” cases. This is why you need the steroid law practice of criminal attorney J. Clark Baird. A myriad number of different substances can fall under the umbrella of “performance enhancing drugs” and will be associated with these cases. Because of the large numbers of chemicals potentially at play, many times both law enforcement agencies and prosecutors aren’t properly educated about the specific substance at issue in their cases. Any of the following substances below could be involved in a “steroid” case:
|2,4-Dinitrophenol||HCG (Human Chronic Gonadotropin)|
|Aminoglutethimide||HGH (Human Growth Hormone)|
|Drostanolone propionate||Sub-Lingual Drops|
|THG (The Clear)|
You may think that a criminal steroid case will be adequately handled by any “criminal attorney,” but when your life and your freedom are on the line, J. Clark Baird’s interest, knowledge, and experience will make a difference. Don’t trust your case to a criminal defense attorney who will let the prosecution treat clenbuterol like cocaine. Typical defense attorneys likely do not know the difference between HGH and hCG, the difference between a Halodrol and Anadrol, the difference between D-bol and T-Bol. If your defense attorney does not understand that two hundred 10 milligram anavar tablets are for personal use, then you should contact steroid law criminal defense attorney J. Clark Baird immediately.
J. Clark Baird knows LAW ENFORCEMENT.
Federal steroid charges can be complex and confusing, involving multiple defendants in multiple positions—all who are accused of multiple charges. Conspiracy indictments can include everyone from label manufacturers, peptide companies, owners of underground labs, board operators/moderators, vial and stopper suppliers, remailers, and more. J. Clark Baird understands the interplay and dynamics of the steroid world and how law enforcement both assesses and ultimately prosecutes all parties involved.
Not only are the charges confusing, but each of the law enforcement authorities who bring them have specific approaches to handling cases—all different. Investigations begin with the DEA, the US Postal Service, US Customs, the FDA, the FBI, or state/local task forces, and protocol and procedure is different for every one of them. J. Clark Baird’s federal criminal practice is not limited to trials and litigation. He works directly with law enforcement as well and has successfully negotiated with federal law enforcement agencies and the U.S. Attorney’s office on behalf of his clients.
Just a few examples of how these steroid/PED cases can arise include:
- Controlled sales to confidential informants working with law enforcement.
- Importation of raw hormones from a Chinese powder manufacturer to an underground lab.
- Acquisition of a few extra cycles of Sustanon, Deca and D-bol for acquaintances at the gym.
- Transfer of Mexican steroids across the U.S. border.
- Trafficking charges as a result of a simple homebrewer working with some Fina pellets.
- Conspiracy charges against a forum board owner resulting from allowing an offshore distributor to post a banner on your site.
- Illegal search and seizure merely for weighing 265 pounds with 22 inch arms and 9% body fat.
- And many, many more.
These cases arise in various ways under numerous authorities, whose techniques all vary. Not every “criminal attorney” who posts an ad in the yellow pages is savvy enough to “talk the talk” while working with those law enforcement authorities. Not every attorney has the experience to confer with them confidently and negotiate effectively. J. Clark Baird does.
J. Clark Baird knows the LAW.
Additionally, a successful defense in steroid cases necessarily invokes issues in several different areas of law. They commonly require a vast knowledge of the laws related to wire-fraud, conspiracy, dosage levels, and chemical composition. There is a good bit of scientific intricacy that must be argued with a legal backdrop in these cases that rules out a typical “criminal attorney” who will see your case like any other drug case.
Statistics show that 6 million Americans have used steroids, currently or in their pasts. Sports figures are routinely splashed across headlines for having tested positive. Most users consider it to be a personal choice that enhances their bodies and performances while hurting no one else. Despite these facts, penalties for possessing or selling anabolic steroids are serious. In federal jurisdictions and most states, crimes involving steroids are all felonies—even petty possession. With steroid cases, every charge is serious.
The Federal Anabolic Steroid Control Acts of 1990, expanded in 2004, classifies steroids as a Schedule III substance under federal law. Other Schedule III’s include barbiturates, LSD precursors, veterinary tranquilizers, and narcotic painkillers. Classification of performance enhancing drugs in that manner means a mere possession charge is a federal offense, making just a first offense punishable by up to one year in prison and/or a minimum fine of $1,000. That sentence is influenced by such factors as the defendant’s past criminal history, the strength of the case against him, his role in the charged conduct, and how effectively the case is either litigated or negotiated by defense counsel. Making matters even more serious, the federal guidelines, which are followed by many states, use a (1 pill = 1 count) or (1 ml/cc = 1 count) standard. Those guidelines applied to anabolic steroids may add up to an astonishing number of counts, or criminal charges. For example, just a one-week cycle of Dianabol tablets may result in 200-450 criminal counts on an indictment. Also, recent changes in federal sentencing guidelines have mandated that all substances listed under Schedule III are treated equally, meaning steroids will be sentenced the same as LSD or Oxycontin. With the typical quantities of performance enhancing drugs in a normal cycle, someone who has only a few cycles’ worth may easily possess enough steroids to be considered to have “the intent to sell,” driving the seriousness of the charges and the possible punishment even higher.
A steroid charge has the potential to ruin your life, despite the fact that steroids are significantly different in many ways from the other substances they have been categorized with under the law. There are medical, moral and social differences, in addition to chemical ones. All attorneys do not understand those differences, much less know to point them out and utilize them successfully in criminal cases. J. Clark Baird does.
