Marion Jones

Marion Jones, 37, a former world track and field athlete and Tulsa Shock WNBA star, used performance enhancing drugs as far back as September 2000. Jones admitted in 2007 that she perjured herself in 2003 during the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative (BALCO) drug scandal. She was stripped of the five medals she won at the 2000 Summer Olympics, sentenced to six months in prison, two years of probation and community service.
