Former CSI athlete pleads guilty in steroid case

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) - A former College of Southern Idaho baseball player has pleaded guilty to selling anabolic steroids.

The Times-News reports 21-year-old William Robert "Billy Bob" Ward of Las Vegas pleaded guilty on Nov. 19 to three counts of delivery of a controlled substance.

Prosecutors are recommending a three- to nine-year prison sentence that could be reduced under the retained jurisdiction program when Ward is sentenced on Jan. 7.

Ward said he pleaded guilty because on three occasions between February and May he delivered testosterone propionate to a confidential informant. He was arrested in May after an Idaho State Police investigation into Ward's reported sale of anabolic steroids to several of his teammates.

Ward had just finished his sophomore season at the junior college at the time of his arrest.
