Criminal charges have been filed in the steroid scandal that rocked Major League Baseball one year ago.

Seven people, including Anthony Bosch, founder of the now-defunct Biogenesis anti-aging clinic in Coral Gables are facing federal charges.

Bosch surrendered to federal agents of the United States Drug Enforcement Administration in Weston, Florida.

Reports indicate Bosch may have reached a deal to plead guilty to conspiracy to distribute anabolic steroids.

Bosch and his network will face charges of providing performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs) to high-profile baseball players, including Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees.

U.S. Attorney Wilfredo Ferrer said Bosch and his associates provided dangerous performance-enhancing drugs not just to professional players, but to underage athletes across the South Florida community.

In addition, the federal investigation revealed that Bosch associates, including Florida Highway Patrol trooper Carlos Ruiz, were also involved in dealing the street drug known as Molly.

Further, the group was allegedly operating a clinic in the Dominican Republic, reportedly luring athletes as young as 12 years of age to take PEDs.
