Supervisor Foy, Son Pleads No Contest to HGH Charge
The son of a Ventura County Supervisor pleaded no contest Friday to conspiracy, possession for sale, and manufacture of a controlled substance, namely human growth hormones or HGH. 33-year-old Peter Foy II entered the no contest pleas to the felonies on Friday afternoon. The judge then found Foy guilty on all counts. Foy will be sentenced on July 12th. Foy, the son of Ventura County Supervisor Peter Foy, had been indicted along with another man in connection with the case. Because the Ventura County DA's budget is controlled by the Board of Supervisors and Foy and DA Greg Totten are political allies, the California Attorney General's Office handled the prosecution to avoid any appearance of conflict of interest. Foy remains free on his own recognizance pending sentencing.
