SHERMAN, Texas (AP) -A personal trainer who claims ties to professional football players in Dallas and Atlanta pleaded guilty Tuesday to conspiring to distribute thousands of units of anabolic steroids.
David Jacobs entered the plea as part of deal with prosecutors that remained under seal. No names came up during the hearing.
``I can't disclose any of those names,'' Jacobs said afterward when asked if he was involved with any Cowboys. He said he has been instructed to make no more statements. Prosecutors declined comment Tuesday.
Jacobs told Dallas-Fort Worth television station KTVT on Monday that as part of the deal he would tell federal investigators about pro athletes who use steroids.
On the Web site for a supplements store owned by Jacobs, the Plano trainer claims to have offered guidance to members of the Cowboys and Falcons. Officials with both teams have said Jacobs never worked for them.
Jacobs agreed to plead guilty to one count of conspiring to possess and distribute anabolic steroids. In exchange, other charges against him would be dropped at sentencing. A sentencing date hasn't been set, and he was released on bond Tuesday.
During the hearing, the judge asked whether Jacobs agreed to plead guilty to conspiring to distribute more than 40,000 units of anabolic steroids and several thousand units human growth hormone. Jacobs said yes.
An indictment filed in May charges Jacobs and three others with conspiring to possess and distribute anabolic steroids. Jacobs also had faced a charge of unlawful user of a controlled substance while in possession of a firearm.
Two of the defendants, Matthew Williams and Amber Jarrell, already have pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute anabolic steroids.
Prosecutors are also seeking the forfeiture of two cars, about $25,000 in cash, computer equipment, four semiautomatic weapons, a rifle and a shotgun from the four defendants.
