Dr. Phil Astin, who supplied Chris Benoit steroids and HGH among other drugs -- pleaded guilty to 175 charges of illegal prescription drug distribution. Benoit, the WWF wrestler suffering from concussions, drug abuse (anabolic steroids, HGH, narcotics, benzodiazepines, alcohol) killed his son, wife, and himself on a weekend rage rampage in 2007.
Dr. Phil Astin entered the new plea to a 175 count indictment in court on Thursday.
The indictment charges Astin with conspiracy and illegal distribution of prescription drugs. The charges are not related to the 2007 of Benoit, his wife and the wrestler's son.
Benoit was taking anabolic steroids when he killed his family and then himself in their Fayette County home.
Astin's attorney portrays him as a country doctor willing to bend a few rules to try to ease his clients aches and pains.
Astin will be sentenced in May.
