Is is fair to send Olympic track star Marion Jones to jail for steroid use?


There won't be much smiling -- or any medals -- where Jones is headed...Marion Jones won't be holding up any Olympic medals ever again, that much is certain. But is it fair for Jones to be serving jail time for her indiscretions?

So when I heard that Marion Jones, the incredible American sprinter who was one of the stars of the 2000 Sydney Olympics, had admitted to her use of steroids, not one exhalation of shock pushed forth from my lungs. What has shocked me, however, is the realization that, for once, an athlete is actually facing real punishment for her crimes.
