Galea's assistant to enter plea
A Canadian sports doctor's assistant who's accused of bringing human growth hormone into the United States for her boss is scheduled to take a plea later this month in federal court in Buffalo.
Mary Anne Catalano's September 2009 arrest at a Buffalo border crossing led to charges in both countries against Anthony Galea, a Toronto physician who's treated high-profile athletes including Tiger Woods.
Catalano was charged in September with smuggling and has co-operated with investigators.
A lesser charge of lying to border officers was added last month.
A Thursday court calendar entry shows a plea set for June 24. Catalano's Toronto attorney, Calvin Berry, said he expects all to be resolved then but wouldn't elaborate.
U.S. Attorney William Hochul declined comment.
