French Want Suspended Jail for Landis

Cyclist implicated in '06 doping-lab hack

A prosecutor in France has recommended that cyclist Floyd Landis receive an 18-month suspended sentence in connection with the hacking of a French Anti-Doping Laboratory in 2006. According to prosecutors, Landis attempted to use information obtained illegally from the lab in his defense against a positive test for testosterone that cost him his 2006 Tour de France tite. Landis has denied the charges. Neither Landis nor his coach, Arnie Baker—who received the same recommendation from the prosecutor—were present for the trial.
