A-Rod unlikely to be charged in the Biogenesis case

The government is not likely to charge or otherwise target Alex Rodriguez in the Biogenesis prosecution. That according to the Daily News, who spoke to the attorney for A-Rod’s cousin Yuri Sucart on the matter.

This is not terribly surprising as, most of the time anyway, law enforcement tends to prefer to go after drug dealers than drug users. While Major League Baseball treated A-Rod as Public Enemy Number One, to the cops he’s just that kid buying a bag of something.

Sucart is one of seven criminal defendants in the prosecution. Anthony Bosch has already reached an agreement to plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute PEDs next month. The other guys are slated to go trial if they can’t reach agreements of their own.
