THE sentence of a doctor, two pharmacists and a sportsman has been reduced to eight-months in prison for crimes against public health in Alicante between mid-2008 and early 2009.
They illegally supplied anabolic steroids to athletes that should have only been sold by prescription and for specific therapeutic purposes.
They have also been banned from practising their professions for two-years and two-months and a fine of €1,260 each.
Prior to the appeal, the three professionals had been previously sentenced to one-year and four-months in prison and a €2,340 fine as well as a three-year and seven-month ban from practising their professions.
