>A bodybuilder who made £500,000 through illegal online sales of human growth hormone and steroids has been spared jail.

Mr X, 34, could have exposed customers to the risk of contracting fatal diseases including HIV and CJD by selling them potentially unscreened blood products.

He operated a worldwide network of sales of bodybuilding drugs, sending phials of medicine to countries including Italy, the United States and Philippines.

A raid on the gym he ran revealed he was also dabbling in the unlicensed sale of imitation Viagra.

Corbersmith was given a 12-month prison sentence suspended for two years, with 100 hours of unpaid work and £2,500 costs at Southwark Crown Court.

Judge Christopher Hardy said: “Members of the public seem only too willing to imbibe medicine to improve their strength or their looks or whatever, and Parliament has decided sensibly that these drugs should only be sold by licensed sellers.”

Mr X now faces a substantial order to confiscate his illegal profits. The amount he has to repay will be set later this year.

Phillipa Beswick, mitigating, said Mr X did not realise he was acting illegally by selling the drugs online and disputed the prosecution’s claim that he had made £518,000 from the business.

She said he was well known in the community for his charity work, raising money for the local hospice and lifeboat service.

Mr X, of Grasmere Gardens, Frinton, admitted retailing a medicinal product without a licence, attempting to supply a class C drug, possessing class C drugs with intent to supply, possessing a medicinal product with intent to supply, possessing an unlicensed medicinal product and possessing a class C drug.

I as a customer ( who didn't no him personally ) had the products I received independently lab tested and the results found all products tested to be good quality and correctly dosed.
