David Millar escapes jail time

VeloNews | Prosecutor recommends leniency for Millar

Scotland's David Millar, currently with Saunier Duval, escaped a possible jail term for his part in the Cofidis doping ring.

A French prosecutor recommended that Millar and former Cofidis director Boguslaw Madejak not be jailed for their part in the team's doping between 2000 and 2003.

Seven other defendants, including Philippe Gaumont, Massimiliano Lelli, and Robert Sassone still may face imprisonment for their role in the case.

Prosecutor Jacques Hossaert recommended that the pharmacist accused of supplying the riders with EPO serve six months to a year in prison and a 3,000-euro fine.
