Austria May Jail Athletes for Doping

Athletes caught doping in Austria could be charged with fraud and face up to ten years in prison, the AP reports. Previously, possessing and selling drugs was a criminal offense, but the actual use of the drugs was not. Austria recently put forth this amendment to its national fraud act, which will go live January 1st if it is ratified by parliament this year.
