A Canadian sports doctor who has been on the list of many high profile sports clients such as Alex Rodriguez, and Tiger Woods has pleaded guilty in a federal court yesterday to charges of brining illegal and unapproved drugs into the United States, which includes but is not limited to human growth hormone used by professional athletes. The healing specialist from Toronto has been sought out by the biggest names in the world and was indicted in October by a federal grand jury on charges of smuggling human growth hormone into the country as well as he lied to boarder agents in order to avoid getting caught. He now also faces charges in Canada.

Many of his charges in America have been dismissed when he agreed to plead guilty and cooperate with investigators to disclose the identities of patients and their treatment plans. Galea does not have a license to work in the United States and was also accused with treating twenty pro athletes at their homes, friends homes and hotels in between October 2007 and September 2009. This indictment didn’t however identify clients but according to prosecutors they included pro baseball players, footballers and golfers etc. Football betting lines

Galea who is 51 has pleated guilty in frot of Judge Richard Arcara to using mislabeled drugs and getting them into the U.S which eliminates the need for a trail. In most cases evidence as well as eye witness statements should give investigators insight into how he was paid and where he went. According to prosecutors he billed players around $800,000 for his work in America and the value of the drugs and substances were $30,000 to $70,000. The doctor is married and has seven children has agreed to forfeit $275,000 prior sentencing, but he has been released pending sentencing and could get up to two years in jail. scores

The doctor has a problem with his vocal cord and answered the judge very politely in a low croaking voice in which he said he would not appeal. Tiger woods who recently decided to skip the British Open next week has also been treated by the doctor  but did not take performance enhancing drugs. Both Carlos Beltran and Jose Reyes of the Mets have acknowledged talking to authorities as part of the investigation. Baseball odds
