Marion Jones to Be Sentenced


A federal judge is expected to sentence former Olympic champion and UNC-Chapel Hill star Marion Jones today. Last year, she pleaded guilty to lying to federal investigators about steroid use and a check-cashing scheme. Prosecutors and defense attorneys told Federal Judge Kenneth Karas that Jones should not serve more than a six month maximum. However, Karas said he might order her to serve more time, saying he "is not bound by that agreement." (WRAL.com)
