Louisiana school board member guilty in steroids case
SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - A Louisiana school board member has pleaded guilty in a steroid conspiracy.
The U.S. Attorney's Office in Shreveport says Bossier Parish School Board member Mike Mosura pleaded guilty Thursday to conspiracy to possess the drugs with intent to distribute them. A news release said Mosura admitted to receiving and distributing the steroids.
He's scheduled for sentencing Dec. 9 and could get up to 10 years in prison and a $500,000 fine.
Codefendants Brant and Julie Landry are scheduled for trial Sept. 9. Brant Landry is accused of making the drugs. His wife is accused of getting steroids out of a house before investigators raided it.
News outlets have reported that she's a Caddo Parish teacher but was put on paid leave after being indicted. All three are from Bossier City.
