Steroid Trafficker Linked To Cowboys Sentenced to Probation

David Jacobs was sentenced to three years of probation and fined $25,000 Thursday for his part in a Plano based steroid trafficking network.

Jacobs claims he sold steroids and human growth hormones to former Dallas Cowboy offensive lineman, Matt Lehr.

The Dallas Morning News recently reported that Lehr was under federal investigation. Jacobs claims to have sold tens of thousands of dollars worth of performance-enhancing drugs to Lehr in 2006 and 2007.

Lehr's attorney denied the allegations.

Jacobs pleaded guilty last year in a federal court to conspiring to possess with intent to distribute anabolic steroids.

Wednesday, Jacobs told The Dallas Morning News that a Plano police officer stole about $4,500 in cash from his house during a raid last year. Plano police spokesman Rick McDonald said his department is not investigating the allegation because Jacobs never filed a signed complaint.

Jacobs acknowledged that steroids can be harmful and said he is willing to speak to high school students about the dangers of steroid use.
