Federal prosecutor ties Shane Carwin to steroid distribution ring

Recent UFC title challenger Shane Carwin is among 22 professional athletes cited as recipients of steroids distributed by Applied Pharmacy Services, an Alabama-based organization, according to a report released Friday evening on Al.com, courtesy of the Mobile Press-Register.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Donna Dobbins revealed Carwin's name, as well as six others, during the sentencing of J. Michael Bennett, a former supervising pharmacist at Applied Pharmacy Services.

Bennett, who was convicted earlier this year, received a four-year prison term for his role in a nationwide conspiracy to illegally sell anabolic steroids.

According to Dobbins, the seven individuals named were delivered orders that contained Bennett's initials or signatures.

Carwin and his manager, Jason Genet, were unavailable for comment when contacted by MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). Genet did tell MMAFighting.com that his client plans on making a statement at a later date.

Court documents refer to the 22 alleged recipients by initials only. Entry No. 17, identified as "S.C." and "Professional Fighter," claims the recipient received Trenbolone, Testosterone, Stanozolol injectable and Nandrolone from a period of January 2006 to August 2006.

If the entry does refer to Carwin, the former UFC interim heavyweight champion fought three times on the regional circuit following the conclusion of said period before making his UFC debut in May 2008.

Carwin has not tested positive for any banned substances during his five-year mixed martial arts career.

The clinic associated with the illegal prescriptions distributed to "S.C." is noted on the same document as Infinite Health, located in Carwin's home state of Colorado.

The other six alleged participants named on Friday included four professional bodybuilders and two professional wrestlers, including former Olympic gold-medal winner and longtime WWE star Kurt Angle.

Bennett was the first of five men found guilty for their involvement in the steroid ring to be sentenced. Prosecutors made no mention of an attempt to prosecute any of the 22 recipients on the list.

Carwin has not tested positive for any banned substances during his five-year mixed martial arts career.

So how could he be taking steroids and hiding it from them?

Different steroids stay in the system for a different amount of time some only stay in the system for a few days others over a year, the ones named in the article only last a few weeks.
