Ex-tribal officer Jimmy Russell Hamm pleads guilty to steroid-related charge.

"Federal prosecutors say a former tribal police officer has pleaded guilty to a charge of drug possession with an intent to distribute anabolic steroids.

U.S. Attorney Sheldon Sperling said Thursday that the case against Jimmy Russell Hamm stemmed from an investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Sperling says Hamm purchased anabolic steroids for personal use and to distribute between September 2005 and June 2008. He says the purchases and deliveries of the steroids were done while Hamm was on duty for the Creek Nation Lighthorse division, the tribe's police force.

Hamm's attorney didn't immediately return a call seeking comment.

Sperling says statutory range of punishment is not less than five years in prison and/or up to $250,000 in fines."
