Marion Jones Sentenced To 6 Months For Doping Lies

Posted: Updated:

Disgraced Olympian Marion Jones, whose speed and smile made her an international superstar until steroid use led to her downfall, was sentenced Friday to six months in prison for lying to investigators about performance-enhancing drugs and a check-fraud scam.

The judge sentenced Jones despite her plea that he not separate her from two boys, "even for a short period of time."
