Two more people — a pair of sisters from Florida — have pleaded not guilty in the Albany County district attorney’s ongoing probe into the illegal sale of steroids.
Elaine Sorrels and Courtney Sorrels-Loceff (LOH’-sehf) were arraigned this morning in Albany on an eight-count indictment that includes charges of conspiracy and attempted criminal sale of a controlled substance.
Prosecutors say 37-year-old Elaine Sorrels Boynton Beach is president of the Oasis Longevity and Rejuvenation clinic in Delray Beach, Florida and her 30-year-old sister Courtney, of Port Saint Lucie, is vice president.
The sisters were released on ten-thousand dollars bail.
They and a third person from their business are linked to an Orlando, Florida pharmacy that’s at the center of the Albany D-A’s nationwide investigation of steroid sales over the Internet.
So far, 20 people have been indicted and more than a dozen have been arraigned on charges in Albany.
Prosecutors say owners of the Orlando business — Signature Pharmacy — illegally sold steroids and hormones through their affiliates.
