Conte Likely Will Face Additional Money Laundering Charges in the BALCO Case

Victor Conte, founder of the Bay Area Laboratory Co-op (BALCO) who has admitted providing steroids to a number of athletes, will likely face additional money laundering charges, according to an AP story (here).  At a closed hearing in San Francisco on June 7, the government disclosed that it plans to issue a superseding indictment with charges that only name Conte and not the other defendants.  The trial is scheduled to begin September 6, although additional charges that only name Conte increases the chance that the judge will sever at least some of the defendants to avoid any prejudice to them from unrelated evidence.  Conte's admissions in a national television interview (see earlier post here) that BALCO created and distributed steroids certainly makes his defense quite difficult, and the other defendants have a stong incentive not to join him at the defense table once trial starts.
