Former baseball slugger Jose Canseco pleaded guilty in court today to misdemeanor drug charges stemming from an arrest in October. Saying he was tired, depressed, and nearly bankrupt, Canseco apologized to U.S. Magistrate Judge Ruben B. Brooks:
“I made an honest mistake.”
Canseco was sentenced to 12 months of unsupervised probation. Last month, Canseco was detained by immigration officials as he was driving back into the country from a trip to Mexico. Officials found a the former baseballer to be in possession of a fertility drug commonly used to boost low testosterone levels caused by steroid use. It is illegal to posses the drug without a prescription. Canseco has long admitted that he used steroids while playing baseball, and attributes much of his success to doing so.
