Dad Who Gave Son Steroids Is Given 6-Year Sentence

Published: Jan 8, 2008

TAMPA - Saying he hopes to send a message to parents of athletes who want to excel, a federal judge on Monday gave a six-year sentence to a father who gave his son steroids.

James Gahan admitted giving the synthetic testosterone and human growth hormone to his son, Corey, a champion in-line skater, who was banned from the sport, for at least two years, beginning in 2003, when the boy was 13.

James Gahan later lied about his involvement, accusing his son's trainer and a clinic operator of giving the boy drugs without his knowledge, Gahan's plea agreement states.

"I apologize to my family and to the court for my actions that have brought us here, most importantly my son," Gahan said. "There is no excuse for what I've done … I have made some bad choices."

Sadly, the newspaper reports that Gahan's son, Corey, is no longer skating:

Gahan, 41, of Lady Lake, is now estranged from his son, who is living in Michigan with his mother, defense attorney Thomas Ostrander said.

"It's very clear that he was a world-class athlete," Ostrander said of Corey Gahan. "He's not anymore." The boy "doesn't train anymore because of the numerous injuries" he suffered when he pushed himself after using steroids, Ostrander said. "He's no longer an in-line skater."
