Weightlifter Who Sold Steroids by Mail Caught with $175000 Cash Gets 3 Years Probation

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 14 – Frank Fontana is a former weightlifter who pled guilty to distributing the steroids testosterone and nandrolone.

He was sentenced on September 14, 2023 before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Chief Judge Laura Taylor Swain. Inner City Press was there.

  Chief Judge Swain called the conduct serious -- packaging for the drugs and $175,000 in cash were found in Fontana's residence -- but also cited his work, his charity, and his hardships.

    Fontana's sentencing memo recounts that "in 2017, Frank married Kristina Name Voluntarily Redacted by Inner City Press, although it remains in the sentencing memo on PACER], now 37. They have a son, A.F., 10. Subsequent to their marriage, Frank learned that Kristina was a prolific adult film actress who has hundreds of pornographic images and videos readily available on the internet. Frank and Kristina divorced in 2021 as a result of the shame and embarrassment caused to Frank and his family from Kristina's former career as an adult actress. Kristina currently resides in Wellington, Florida."

   He was sentenced to three years probation, forfeiture - and a $50,000 fine.

  The case is US v. Fontana, 21-cr-371 (Swain)
