Last year, Tim Montgomery was sentenced to 4 years in prison for his role in a bank fraud scheme. The former Olympian had already had his medals stripped from him, and was convicted of laundering $775,000 through phony checks.
His latest set of woes was set in place by his guilty plea last July to distributing heroin in Virginia. His recent hearing in that case resulted in an additional 5 year prison term once he finishes serving his current 4 year prison term.
I’m not sure what I can add to that story, other than that I hope that he can find something useful to do with his life after nearly a decade in prison. It’s a long fall for a former world record holder, which all began with having to cheat in order to attain that record.
