LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) - A 34-year-old Jennings man has been sentenced for his role in the importation and distribution of anabolic steroids.

Christopher Paul Benoit (ben-WAH’) was sentenced Thursday by U.S. District Judge Patricia Minaldi to 18 months in prison and three years of supervised release. He was also ordered to pay a $2,000 fine.

Prosecutors say Benoit plotted with others to order steroids online and import them by mail between January 2007 and June 2012. His indictment listed five such orders delivered from China to Jennings.
