A pharmaceutical company owner accused of illegally marketing and distributing steroids then paying doctors to write medically unnecessary prescriptions will plead guilty, his attorney said Thursday. Daniel McGlone, who owns New Jersey-based American Pharmaceutical Group, agreed to plead guilty to 50 counts, including conspiracy, health care fraud and money laundering, according to court documents and his attorney Bob Mann.

McGlone is accused of illegally distributing human growth hormone and steroids to body builders in several states, and allegedly got some of the drugs from a Florida-based pharmaceutical company charged by New York authorities in a larger steroid case.

Prosecutors say McGlone advertised in bodybuilder publications and recommended the drugs for anti-aging and weight-loss purposes. Federal law restricts the use or distribution of human growth hormone to specified medical uses, such as wasting disease associated with AIDS.

McGlone took orders over the phone and paid two New York doctors to write prescriptions for the drugs even though they never met or examined the patients, according to prosecutors.

He made more than $860,000 through the scheme between April 2004 and August 2006, prosecutors said. Authorities seized more than $125,000 and two Dodge Vipers from McGlone, according to federal court documents.

McGlone sent the prescriptions to pharmacies, including Orlando, Fla.-based Signature Pharmacy, according to prosecutors. The company is not charged in the Rhode Island case.

One doctor pleaded guilty in March to conspiracy and illegal drug distribution charges. The other doctor had initially agreed to plead guilty, then declined to do so at a court hearing last month.
