Ex-tribal officer gets probation in steroids case

Muskogee, Oklahoma (AP) May 2010

A former tribal police officer who was accused of purchasing anabolic steroids has been given probation and home detention, but no prison time.

U.S. District Judge Ronald A. White formally sentenced Jimmy Russell Hamm II to 24 months of probation, four of which will be spent on home detention.

A federal grand jury indicted Hamm in August on a charge of drug possession with intent to distribute anabolic steroids.

Prosecutors alleged the purchases and deliveries to Hamm were done while he was on duty and driving a marked patrol unit as a member of the Creek Nation Lighthorse Division.
