Marion Jones’ Ex Sentenced To 5 Yrs

Hopefully Tim Montgomery’s conviction is the final chapter to this family’s tragic tale. He just received 5 yrs for moving work:

“I was blind — I never had a job in my life,” Montgomery explained to U.S. District Judge Jerome B. Friedman. “I did the wrong thing.”

The one-time Olympic sprinter, 33, will serve the five-year sentence after he completes a 46-month prison term on an unrelated conviction in New York, reports the Associated Press. Under an agreement with the government, he entered a guilty plea in July to possession and distribution of more than 100 grams of heroin and received the minimum term under federal sentencing guidelines. In April, Montgomery was arrested on the heroin charge one month after he was sentenced to nearly four years in prison for his role in a New York-based check-kiting conspiracy. Montgomery’s heroin prosecution is based on four drug sales he made in 2007 and 2008 in Norfolk and Virginia Beach. A Drug Enforcement Agency informant made buys that were either electronically videotaped, tape-recorded or witnessed by agents, according to court records. Montgomery’s Olympic gold medal in the 400-meter relay at the 2000 Summer Games and silver in the same event four years earlier, as well as his world-record 9.78-second performance in the 100-meter dash, were all wiped from the books after he was linked to the investigation of BALCO, the West Coast lab at the center of the steroid scandal in sports. He also was banned from track for two years.

First, ‘The Man’ stuck Marion Jones and now they’re sticking her baby’s father. How are you going to try to push weight with drug agencies rifling through your Marion’s panty drawers? You didn’t think they would catch wind of 100g of Herion?? And wait… 33 and never had a job??? SMH

  • Seek the light beyond the shadows

    I see my self as a hustler, I hustle this 9-5 every damn day to take care of my family. I would never resort to feeding my people poison to feed my family. What these drug dealers don’t seem to care about is the effect the drug has on our communities. Crack babies being born every day. Mothers selling there bodies spreading diseases just to get there next fix. Gang wars young people die every day. I really don’t have any empathy for any of them. Hustle like I do the legal way.

    Easy come easy go.

  • homie

    Umm! Let’s see! 46 months plus 5 years = about 9 years total. Now, make that 42 years without ever having a job, dumbass!! Sad, nonetheless. Too bad, he couldn’t afford a good lawyer to get him less time.

    How the **** can anyone be imprisoned for taking drugs? What a load of cock and bull, how many athletes CHEAT, many do. Yes it is wrong, but surely it is doubly wrong to make an example of these two and torment their children. If no one knew Jones was on drugs, more fool you, she looked like a MAN and even looked like she was growing a tiny penis. But America LOVED it when she was winning, now the winning times have gone, they want to outcast her, you have to be kidding freaking with me…they have paid their dues and it is not a prison offence to take drugs, many come back after drugs abuse and compete for their nation again.

  • CommonSense...

    he “man” didn’t catch him….he had other options and it didn’t have to include slingin’ drugs.

  • Tracey

    ohh drugs drugs drugs, heroin, my bad…LOCK THE ****ER UPPPPPPPPPPERRR!

  • Oshie - lay down on the floor, I want the Gs and the money or everybody gotta Go

    Drugs are bad, mmkay?

  • shavon denise

    This people need to know that that America’s Sweetheart stuff is only going to last temporarly so why do something that will have them on your back? They hate us because anything we set our minds to we become the best at and now look, a Black man who set his mind of being the most powerful man in thw world!! You think some fast running nuccas aint going to get caught?? Its sad because I feel a white athelete with the same crimes would get off or not put in the position to lie under oath, i.e. Mark Mcquire. We see this Roger Clemens thing getting swept under the rug. And Tim Montgomery has been a track star all his life so he didnt have to have a job. When you go your whole life used to the spoils of fame and money, working at Wal-Mart might not cater to your financial needs. Not saying that he was right because he is an idiot and my fellow alumni (go NSU) but as Black people we have to know that what ever we do will be dealt with by a higher power, and no not God, but the prejudice, biased judicial system.

    Ain’t that a b*tch…

  • Gilbert

    Both of these fools needed to go down. They cheated ever since college. They knew and participated back then that their coach was pumpin them up with steroids and even helped other people who were coached by the same mane. They cheated to get those medals and disgraced America by cheating. They cheated, they’ve been cheating since college and they both finally got caught. I’m waiting for the entire roid ring to be brought down with 2 of its biggest clients already behind bars when is it the coach’s turn to drop the soap?
