Stallone Pleads Guilty to

Hormone-Import Charge

5/15/2007 9:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sylvester StalloneSylvester Stallone pleaded guilty this morning in a Sydney court to bringing banned muscle-building hormones into Australia, and will be sentenced next week.

The actor didn't appear in court, but said in a letter to Sydney's Downing Center Local Court that he had "made a terrible mistake" because he was "ignorant" about local laws, according to the AP. Stallone was accused of bringing the restricted growth hormones into Oz when a customs search in February turned up 48 vials of Jintropin, a human growth hormone. Then, said a prosecutor yesterday, Stallone threw four vials of the male hormone testosterone out of his hotel room when customs officials searched it.

The maximum penalty for Stallone's offense could be 5 years in prison and $91,500 in fines, but Stallone will face up to $18,500 for each charge because his case is being heard in local (not federal) court.

You know, he could be considered a hero of sorts -- smuggling growth hormone into Oz.

Perhaps he could petition a pardon from the Great Oz himself! Or, better yet, could use his miracle muscles to lift a house over the wicked witch's head and save all in Oz from her evil ways.

Five years is a long time. Maybe Paris' trainer is about through with her so he can show Sly how to build some real guns before he hits the slammer.

It must have been the pleas from all the 'lil' impersonators in the land of Wee that urged him to push the boundaries of the law. Now and forevermore we will have to wait for time to grow our celebrities 100% natural, just like Florida Orange Juice and that canned concentrate I buy with the pop off lid.

Oh come now. You knew very well that it was illegal. That's why you threw some out of your hotel room, you idiot. Now be a good boy and serve your time when it comes. I just ask of one thing of you before you do. Please do not start a petition to get yourself out of it. We can not handle another mess like the one Paris created.

This shows how stupid he and anyone else is who continues to do the same type of thing, whether it's using growth hormones or trying to smuggle them for others. Perhaps the use of these impaired his logic and cognitive capabilities? Perhaps he should've checked with local laws to see what the real scored was? It's obvious that all he cared about was himself and certainly not his wife and children. What a filthy pig!

Why can't these stars just age gracefully? All the hormones, exercise, plastic surgery and vitamins will not stop or reverse the aging process. You have to be happy on the inside in order to radiate from the outside.
