SHERMAN, Texas (AP) -A convicted steroids dealer was sentenced in federal court Thursday, and told the judge that the drugs he sold ended up in the hands of NFL players.
David Jacobs, 35, was sentenced to three years probation and fined $25,000.
After the sentencing, he told reporters that he would not name the players whom he says used the steroids he sold.
``I know a lot of them are scared,'' Jacobs said. ``I don't want to ruin anyone's life.''
Jacobs pleaded guilty last year in federal court to conspiring to possess with intent to distribute anabolic steroids. He's also said he sold tens of thousands of dollars worth of performance-enhancing drugs to former Dallas Cowboy Matt Lehr in 2006 and 2007. Lehr has also played for Tampa Bay and Atlanta.
Lehr's attorney has said the player hasn't used banned substances since he was suspended for four games during the 2006 season while playing for Atlanta, and has since passed NFL drug tests. The attorney also has said Jacobs' allegations are retaliation because Lehr wouldn't pay Jacobs' legal fees.
Jacobs acknowledged that steroids can be harmful and said he is willing to speak to high school students about the dangers of steroid use.
``It's not worth it,'' he said.
