SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -A federal judge has sentenced former NFL player Dana Stubblefield to two years' probation for lying to investigators about his steroid use.
U.S. District Judge Susan Illston cited Stubblefield's later cooperation with authorities in the BALCO steroids case as she declined to sentence him to three months' home confinement. That's what federal probation officials recommended.
Stubblefield turned over the names of players, agents and trainers he suspected of drug use to federal investigators and NFL officials.
Stubblefield admitted that he initially lied about taking steroids after the NFL informed him he had tested positive for steroids. He played for three NFL teams in a career that lasted more than a decade.
