A local Shrewsbury couple has been sentenced to serve time in prison on charges of conspiracy to distribute counterfeit steroids. The couple had been using the social media platform Instagram to pose as a sponsored athlete to facilitate sales to unknowing consumers.
Tyler Bauman, 32, and Kathryn Green, 29 were arrested back in April of last year. In August, the pair pled guilty to charges admitting to selling product they had purchased overseas under the brand name “Onyx”.
The pair had used the Instagram handle “musclehead320” to lure unsuspecting buyers pretending to be sponsored by Onxy, and earlier this week his profile was still active to defend his product and taunt authorities.
Bauman was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison, and Green 1 year and 1 day both followed by three years of supervised release.
