Marion Jones Is Out of the Slammer

Posted by Jarvis Holliday On 9/06/2008 No comments
Former Olympic gold medalist Marion Jones was released from federal prison yesterday. Jones, who first gained notoriety as a track star at the University of North Carolina, served most of her six-month sentence for lying under oath about her steroid use. Rather than clearing her name, as she and so many athletes under steroid suspicion claim they will do, Jones eventually admitted to using "The Clear." You all probably remember her tearful public apology last year before she went into the big house.

I wonder what it was like for her watching or reading about this summer's Olympics and realizing that she'll never be looked at the same again. Let that be a lesson for all of you kids out there.
